Done with the challenge and will continue on. It was a great experience for my family and I.

I have the family generally moving more. It is a constant thing with the teen, but my husband now tries to get her doing more.

Here I am in Week 4, and it has made such a difference in my family! Over the last 3 weeks, I have attempted to get my husband and son involved in my "healthy family makeover". We have eaten as a family at least 3 or 4 nights a week. I am cooking all our meals at home, and making sure that they are balanced. I have managed to get my husband and son off the couch and working out with the Wii at least 3 nights out of the week.

I am going to continue this wonderful new trend. Family game night has never been more fun! I am calling this challenge a success!! emoticon
