Save yourself!

Saturday, June 04, 2016

My mom has always been a very hard worker with some health issues. She never let that stop her, though. Six weeks ago (this past Tuesday) she went to the hospital with chest pains and was admitted. They found 2 blockages at 99% and one at 55%. I was shocked. She had a double bypass that Friday. WOW!

My dad's side of the family is tall, slender / medium build, and the women got booty. Mom's side is short stature and round as an apple. Well, guess what? I take after both sides! The belly has always bothered me and now that mom has had some heart issues, I'm more determined to get rid of my mid-section. This is a matter of LIFE or DEATH!!! When mom was at the hospital they told her that she would need to watch her diet and once she was able, try and lose some belly.

I'm almost 36 and have 3 children and a husband. I have many more years that I'd like to be around for them. So, my part in this journey we call life is to live the healthiest way possible and make sure I'm doing my part to save my life. Our health is precious and we should not take it for granted. We are given only one body; one life. We should live to see tomorrow and not destroy ourselves with the "American Diet".
