A great thing today is that I really am committed to being a healthier mom for my kids. I want to be here for as long as possible. Life is a crapshoot and I could be hit by a truck tomorrow. However, as far as what I can do to lengthen my life, on my part, I am going to do. I want to see as many grandchildren as I can.
I got on the scale this morning and I am down another 3 pounds, making my total weight loss of 8 pounds. I have decided I really want to get back to my early marriage weight of 135. That's what I was until Mom died. After was when I started packing on the pounds. So, as of today I have 25 pounds to go. I have been using my treadmill and walking outdoors when the pollen count isn't too terrible. I think I am going to have to haul out the Bowflex (from the storage room), dust it off, and watch the video on how to use it again.
I am already down a size from 14 to 12, so I am psyched about that...size 8 here I come.
It was Mother's Day 2000 that was the last Mother's Day I was to have with my Mom. She died just 5 short months later. I want more time here than my Mom had so I have to stick with this 'getting healthy' thing so I can stick around.
Have a wonderful day all you Mom pals of mine out there in cyberspace and IRL. I love you!
