Back again. This is a bumpy road I'm on.

Saturday, December 28, 2013

But I'll push through. Kid #1 is seeing a nutritionist now; he's 5'5" 210 at 12 years old. I think a lot of it is depression and the fact that he's home all day and eats a lot when he's bored. But we're working on learning new foods and trying to get fitter as a family. El Jefe and I are staying on a decent track. We're not UNhealthy, we're just not being the nest example. We tend to be bare minimum type folks. So we'll see what this new year and a new outlook brings us. Much higher stakes now that it's not just me.

    I love reading that you are working on your health as a family. It's the only way to go as far as I'm concerned. My husband was slender because he worked construction. The boys took after him in their build, but wait a minute. I was slender when I was younger. I only put on weight when I got pregnant and had a hard time getting it off after.

So, I say congrats to all of you. Keep up the great work.

Good luck, emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
