Embracing a Healthy Family: Mamavation Week 12

Mamavation Week 12


MamavationA new year and a new me!  I finally found my groove of where I want to be and last year was goodbye to the unhealthy me.  I have figured out the stress eating and will turn to the treadmill over food when I need to relieve some anger or stress.   2011 was a bad year yet a good year.  Bad because I picked up quite a few pounds over the course of many months due to stress but something clicked and I became motivated to get my family involved.  With the help of my oldest, my sister, two cousins and a reluctant mother who is 70 years old, we have progressed nicely since October.


From the height of my horrible weight gain, I have lost 26 pounds and have kept it off to date.  Since October, I have lost 16 pounds and am proceeding with making greater strides of being healthy.  I consume the multi-grain breads, eliminated Coke, turn to more fruits and vegetables and have started running two miles a day and am pushing to increase it.  I am amazed at how fast I can already go as I know about two month's ago, I would have thought 4 was fast.  I'm very pleased and happy and have picked up that exercise high and guilt when I don't.  Out of three of the six, we have lost a combined 32 pounds since October which doesn't include my previous 10 pounds on top of the 16 since October.


Here's to a new year!
