hello, all. I am Leah and I am new to Spark and to the married life team. I have been married almost 8 years to my wonderful husband and have two girls. My oldest is 5 and my youngest almost 2. I am excited about a change in my life to a healthy way of living. I want my girls to have positive body images. My wake-up call came when my oldest looked in the mirror and asked me why she was so fat. She is an extremely slim, dainty child. But even if she wasn't, I don't want her to feel stress about her body. I want to teach my girls a healthy lifestyle. I am loving the encouragement that I have gotten so far. My husband doesn't seem to mind my "chubby-ness". But I know he would love it if I could return to the weight I was when we got married. It feels great to have people to talk to who are going through similar situations. Feel free to respond if you want. And I would love to respond to you!
