When I first joined this club, a whole 11 days ago, I listed my goals as being a good wife to my husband, one he could be proud of. I wanted to look good for him, keep his house better, and make him proud of the way I raised his children. Who would have ever guessed this new way of life I have started could help me reach those goals in such a short time.
Look good - well I only lost 6 pounds so far, but I bet I look a lot better with energy and a smile on my face than I did when I was being lazy and depressed.
Housekeeping - the new energy I have lets me do more. I'm still not the best, and never will be, but I have found a pattern to my day that has me doing dishes, laundry, etc every day.
Children - If I eat better, they eat better. We are sitting at the table, talking - it really hit me last night when my 3 year old, who tried everything on her plate, said, "So, what do YOU think of snow"! My son can't have another helping of pasta unless he also takes 5 more carrots, the kids are actually fighting over who gets to eat the fruit. They are making healthy choices.
Thank you FWC for giving me a place to set goals that have been so important to my family!
