My Weight Watcher leader, Carol Lee, had the most influence on my weight loss. She's a great lady!

My 49 kg husband dying from a very strict autoimmune diabetes- no matter what we did- it outclassed the diabetes professor- we got ourselfs in debit trying all the medications and when the restrictions started- it make me think how lucky I was just having a small spinal injury..
I woke up kissed my man goodbye in the coffin and make cement promise to loss weight.. Also to all the thin fat people whom have fallen in my family..
"Thin Fat" people are underweight people with below normal BMI whom just drop dead from heart and vein illness.. Cholestrol I realised doesn't give jake how small you are- you eat wrong it will get you.. I have a new respect for food it is a basic need not a social necessary anymore- Maslow has a point..

I would have to say my boss who is a huge fitness freak and had faith in me. She gave me little pushes and we are now working on a 5K.

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.

My daughter was the one who convinced me to go back to WW when I thought I was too old for it to work for me.

I am caught betweengenerations on my influential people. My mother had a huge influence on me in terms of watching how to live a successful marriage and telling me one time" I am a woman, a wife and a mother and in that order and don't you ever forget it." I never have. My daughter ( who was only 20 months old when my mother died) once told me:"I can't figure it out. I am so mad at you right now and I still love you." Wisdom from both side of my life.

In some good ways AND some bad ways...my mom. Right now she has a HUGE influence on me even though she passed away April 2008. It is because of her breast cancer that I decided it was high time that I take care of myself. Mom ignored her health out of denial and I refuse to go that route. I am probably as proactive with my health as she was not. I miss her so much.

Early on I would say my Mother. She always seemed to have faith in me and encouraged me to follow my own path.

For me, it was 3 people that share equally in that
category. My Maternal Grandmother, my Mother and
my Father. Religion, hetics and resposability.
I was VERY lucky to have them !!!
