Hello, I am a 50 year old Mom of 2 boys ages 10 and 12..They keep me running to this activity or that, and it's hard to take time to take care of myself..
The one thing I never wanted to do was to embarrass my boys, but they have on more than one occasion told me that the kids in their school say things to them about my weight. I am a very short 5' 0 woman so being heavier makes me look worse than a taller person.. I've always been active so it's hard for me to believe I let myself get to this point. That being said is the reason that I"m here..
I have begun a lifestyle that isn't hard to stick with, I eat 1200 calories a day, but don't get too upset if I hit a 1500 calorie day. I have started the "Insanity" workout and I walk 4-5 miles a day. The kids right now are in between sports for the most part so I've decided to let the house get a little messier, and let the husband take on a little more of the household and kid duties. If I don't, at the rate my health was declining due to my weight gain, I wasn't gonna be around to watch my kids grow up and have my grandbabies..The "Insanity" thing is tough, and I haven't been able to stay with that group, but I keep moving and I go a little farther each time.. hehe.. I feel kinda silly cussin out the TV while I'm doin it, but they can't hear me ;)
