Today while I was at the gym on the treadmill something hit me!! Today was the first day in four weeks that I did not have to force myself to hit the gym!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!!! On Sunday as I was picking up fast food for my family my niece texted me and asked if I still wanted to join Weight Watchers. I was instantly convicted!! I looked at my children and told them that this was it! No more eating fast food 3 to 4 times a week because we are busy and no more of all the sweets that we think make us happy!!! I told them that I was joining Weight Watchers and that they too would be eating alot better with me. My son said "Mom you are not fat!" So I responded, "I am not doing because I am fat (although I am 50 lbs over weight) I am doing it because I love you guys! My heart has to be healthy so I can live to see you guys become happy adults." My daughter said, "mom I want to be healthy too!!"
When I was 7 my father passed away from a heart attack. It was one of the most devastating things that has ever happened to me. I will not allow my health to take me from my kids if I can help it. So I just wanted to encourage everyone to start today. Take better care of yourself and your family. Oh yeah and thanks to my husband and kids for giving me unconditional love and supporting me with their kind words!!!! You guys ROCK!! I will keep everyone posted on how my weight loss goes. :)
