Health problems and weight-loss!!!!

Monday, January 13, 2014

My youngest daughter, Brina's 12 years old and is overweight. She has some health problems, too. She's pre-diabetic and she has hypothyroidism. I don't have any health problems yet but I have to lose weight to keep myself from getting diabetes because it runs in my family and I had pregnancy diabetes so I'm very high risk. We did our first weigh-in on January 5, 2014. We started exercising and eating healthier that same day. We're trying to get in at least 30 minutes of exercise each day. We just had our new weigh-in on January 12, 2014 and I am very happy to say that Brina has lost 3 pounds so far and I've lost almost 4 pounds so far!!!! I am very proud of both of us, but I'm so proud of my baby girl!!!! She's had a really hard time with her weight!!!! We're both getting on the right track and starting to lose weight!!!! It's going to be a long and hard journey for both of us, but especially for her!!!! I will always be here to support and encourage her and love her every step of the way!!!! I love her so much!!!! Please keep us in your prayers that we can stay on the right track and continue to lose this weight and get healthy and fit!!!! We can use all the prayers and encouragement that we can get!!!!

  good for you trying to start a healthy lifestyle for your daughter, but i would suggest being careful of the messages you send her. make it about her health and not her weight.
