I am so excited to be a part of the WeFitFamilies Mother's Day Bash!
Being healthy is important to me because I want to be around to meet my grandchildren, and if I play my cards right, my great-grandchildren! (Hey, I'm a young mom, what can I say?!) I smoke and I'm already overweight, so the odds are already against me. I also don't want to have a heart attack or a stroke!
I also want to be able to keep up with my kids, breathe easier, and keep up with my grandchildren when I have some! You'd be shocked to know that every time I go up our flight of stairs in our home, I'm out of breath! I know, it's a shame, but that's what smoking a pack a day and being about 60 lbs. overweight can do to you!
My mom was very active and still is, even though she's 50+. I remember as a child, she started walking daily, and gradually worked her way up to 5 miles. I'm not sure how much she is up to now, or if she stayed at the 5 miles, but she is definitely an inspiration to me! She's always on the go! My aunts (her sisters) have said, "I don't know how she does it all!" She does it all by staying active!
I joined WeFitFamilies a few months ago and it has been very beneficial to me! I've met some great women and I've learned quite a few things about getting and staying healthy! It's always been hard for me to lose weight but just by being a member of this group, I feel like I can attain my goals easier. Everyone is so supportive!
To engage you in our Mother's Day Bash, I have a giveaway!
This giveaway will end on 4/30 at 11:59 pm EST.
