I'm proud

Tuesday, March 09, 2010

Today I got a call from one of my sisters, we have not talked in a while, she lives 1500 miles from me......or maybe it's more fair to say I live 1500 miles from my family, I'm the one who moved 34 years ago...
Any way she has been putting on a few pounds and has been very unhappy about it, she joined Sparkpeople about 2 years ago but said she did not get it, it was not to her liking....any way she called today to say i inspired her , my BIL and Nephew to start to eat healthy and to exercise, she was so happy today when she called she has lost 10 pound , my Nephew lost 25 pounds and BIL lost 15 pounds......My BIL went to the Doctor right after Christmas and is B/P was up, the DR said , you drop some weight or your going to die, I have no other advise for you but stop eating so much....they are both 63 years old, nephew 31.....
any way it was so nice to hear that me talking to them about eating healthy and just moving will bring some good results......I told them don't think diet and what you can't eat, think healthy and what you can eat....remove the junk food from the house and replace it with fresh fruits and veggies and se what happens......So hip hip hurray , they all lost weight and are going to stick with it.....I'm so proud of them for at least trying......

they all said they are so proud of me and of course thanked me for helping them on the road to being healthier and happier....
what a great turn of events....

I'm just so happy for them and for me......My sister thinks i should give motivational talks about my weight loss and how I have turned my life around and those around me...how sweet...I told her that was sparkpeoples job, I just send people this way..

off to watch American idol and have a crisp juicy apple for tonight's snack, with a bit of almond butter...yum yum
