I have decided that I have to do this for me and my kids. It just hit me out of the blue. I am not making a plan- because for some odd reason, when I make plans I never follow through. So this is one day at a time and one step at a time. I have gotten in a workout everyday this week, which is real good considering I really don't feel like it. My daughter has worked out with me to. Which is totally awesome because she doesn't feel like it either, but as long as I push myself she does to-so I have noticed. Time to shake off the laziness and be the role model I should have been years ago! She is the one I am truly worried about. She is twelve years old and is 184 lbs. It is my fault for eating crappy all these years. But she sees how hard it is for me to loose weight and my struggles and it has helped her be stronger. We are just watching what we eat and getting in some kind of exercise daily. She has already lost 2 lbs in 4 days just from getting up and moving. Have got to stop being so lazy! It isn't good for any of us! It has just gotten out of hand. So we are in this for the long run. I worry about my daughters health, and my own. My youngest who is 4 is gonna get switched- diet wise slowly, but she is young enough to learn the right way to eat, it is up to me to show them both that activity and diet is the key. Wish us luck on our journey to be a happy healthier family!

    Isn't it funny how hard we try to be a good role model for our kids, but how often we forget that this includes food? I've done this in the past, but like you, I am making changes and while I do this, I tell them why. So not only are they eating healthier with me now, they also understand why. They understand the benefits of "this" food, and the problems of "that" food. I still let them have goodies, and teach them moderation.
    You sound like you have a great mental plan, and that's all that matters. Some people write down goals, list them here, etc. You just need to do what works best for you. You are here for you, and for your kids, and nobody else!

    Great job!!
