Daddy...I fight for you:)

Friday, January 25, 2013

Today is a very emotional day for me. On this day 18 years ago, my daddy passed away. This man meant a whole lot to me, and he gave me the best 9 years that he could have given his baby girl. He was and is still my rock, and I wake up every morning and fight my body because of him. On January 25, 1995, my dad passed away from having a massive heart attack. He always had heart problems, and when I started my journey it was from the simple fact of...I don't want to die of heart problems.

So when I wake up at 4 in the morning to go to the gym...I'm fighting because I know my daddy doesn't want me to die the same way he did!

When I spend 2 hours in the gym every morning...I am fighting to make my heart healthy!

When I go to Zumba even when I am tired after a long day...I'm fighting to burn this fat!

Most of all though, I'm fighting to live the life that I was given!!!!

I love you daddy forever and always!

    My heart goes out to you, the anniversary of when a loved one passes is always hard.

    You are making your daddy proud with all of your hard work.

    My dad had a massive heart attack too when I was 14. He almost died and it scared me and still does. It's such a scary thing to see your parent suffering.

    I'm sending lots of hugs and love to you today.

    This is lovely. My dad died of a heart attack too, and is part of my inspiration for losing the weight. I'm sure he is very proud of you. =)

    Aww, your story sounds a lot like mine, only I was 22 when my dad died from his 2nd heart attack. And yes, I'm sure your dad is proud of you and happy that you're taking care of yourself. You know he would only want the best for you, like any good dad would for his daughter!!! Stay tough girl and hang in there!!!

    I'm sure your father is so proud of his little girl, and I'm sure he is so happy that you are being proactive and taking good care of yourself. He sounds like a wonderful man to have had in your life. You just keep doing what you're doing and making him proud, and getting yourself as healthy as you can.
