I am 43 years old, happily married, and have four beautiful children, ages 20, 17, 12, and 10. I have neglected myself once the kids started coming and their activities, sports and health always came first. My own mother died 10 years ago of heart disease and complications of diabetes at the young age of 58. I don’t want to follow in her footsteps and I have finally taken a stand this year as my health seemed fine but I was gaining more and more weight each year. In March I joined a local health club and I have already lost about 10 lbs and am able to fit in jeans that I haven’t work in at least 2-3 years! I am trying to eat healthier too.I want to be here for my kids and look forward to spending time with all my children and my future grandchildren in the future!
