A Reminder

Monday, January 11, 2010

As part of a challenge for my BSG I went through the success gallery on here and found someone who reminded me why I am here. G.I.Jane's story reminded me that I am here for so much more than being able to wear a bathing suit and feel good. I am here because heart disease run in my family and my mom had a heartattack when she was in her 40s. I am here so I will not be on 15+ medications like she is. I am here because if I don't get healthier my family history dictates that I will be in serious trouble. I am here for my future.

    It's great that you have the sense to look at your future through your genes! Unfortunately, a lot of people don't until they're in their 50s. Keep up the great work!

    How in the heck did you lose so much in the last week???????????
