This is for me!

Nothing motivates you like your son's pediatrician telling you that he has gained 14lbs in the last six months. Now, my son is not with me all the time but who do you think they are looking at? The skinny dad or the big ol momma?! No I am not placing blame, because where will that get us? So, three weeks ago we tweaked our meals a bit to get everybody eating healthy and trying to exercise together a bit more. Week 1 was rough: my son is just like me: Mom, can't we start this whole healthy thing tomorrow? Let's just go to McDonalds? I've been hanging in there, well we all have been. I feel better already. I know that I can eat things in moderation its just doing it that's hard sometimes. I've had days I'm so proud of, and days I'm not so proud of. You can spend all the money in the world on diets but it all comes down to: eat less and move! I have gained a handful of lbs, which are almost gone. I hope after this weeks weigh in to start posting my weigh ins back on spark. I am coming close to Jan. 2012, and my one year spark anniversary. I'm supposed to be under 220lbs by then, I'm not sure I will make it but I will try. Everytime I want to eat something, I just think of my son. I don't want him to ever feel badly about himself or get to where I am now. I want him to be healthy and happy. I want us all to be.
