following: Bill Phillip's Body For Life
performance: losing 1.1 lb a week

I am a 36 yr old mother of 4. I have never participated in a formal diet with a label but have tried cutting back on my eating habits and excercising blindly (no structure) which would work till a certain pt, losing 10 lbs at most.
My main motivation for changing my lifestyle is my desire to be on this earth as long as possible to witness and be a part of my childrens' life events. You see, my mom passed away this year from breast cancer at the age of 66. My 4 yr old asked me the other day why her grandma passed away when a family friend was 77 yrs old and still living and why does god let this happen? I prayed to the holy spirit and the words that came out were that her grandma will always be with us in spirit and we will meet with her in heaven. Yes, breast cancer runs in my family, my grandma (who also passed away this year at 89 yrs old), my aunt had it, and my mom's aunt passed away at 65. Not a day has gone by when I don't think when "it" is going to happen, or what life would be like if my mom were here, or how lonely my dad is, etc. Sleepless nights. So needless to say I started having physical problems as a result of the emotional and mental stresses, thinking I had things undre control. I started having chest pains, shortness of breath, and thought it was a heart attack. I went to the emergency room and was tested with the results negative.. I had had an anxiety attack!! "What the!!!" I thought to myself "I have control of things, panic attacks are for wimps." Hence, kick off of depression. After talking to my husband and friends, I've come to the realization that I need to take the bull by the horns and turn this negative thinking to positive. I need to expend my energy into something that's not only positive for me but my family. Reading the Body for Life book and testimonials on the EAS website gives motivation and a specific map to achieving weight loss and a new lifestyle. I am going to do this with my husband Juan and my frined, Linda.
