Hi Meka and welcome to the team....it's nice to meet you and glad to have you join us..it's good that your son is so active I hope that you'll be able to find something soon that will interest your daughter as well to get her going....Back in Dec of 2012 my son who was 14 just turned 15 in late Dec. was not an active kid at all and was overweight not by much but it was definitely noticeable and when late Jan. of this year rolled around after hearing from both my son's doctor that they were both pre diabetic I did a total 180 for us all....I chanced everything we did and it just so happened that in school my son was telling me that his school was doing something called Hip Hop Abs...which I was aware of the program because I had just become a Beachbody coach so I ordered him the program and it's a dancing type exercise program and he absolutely loved it....in 4 months he lost 25 lbs his bmi dropped 5.5 points his Ac1 I think that's what it's called I forget sometimes but it's his diabectic levels dropped and he's maintaining a very healthy and active lifestyle right now because he loves the way he looks now....he feels good about himself....it didn't happen overnight and it was hard work..we cut out junk foods...drank tons of water and ate lots of fruits and veggies...gave up a lot of white pastas...bread...sodas...wheat....etc...I had to watch him until he started seeing results then I didn't have to watch him anymore he would sneak things also but once he starting see hey this works if I work with it he started working with it instead of against it....but all I did is explain to them the dangers of becoming full blown diabetic and how they would either be of medication or injection the rest of their lives and that pretty much put fear in them not that I was trying to scare them but I'm glad it did....not they both are at a very healthy weight and the continue to workout at home...
Now if I could only get their attitudes and behaviors to change for the better
If You're tired or starting over stop giving up
