Thank you for sharing your moving story and for encouraging each of us to find our own motivation! I wish you and your daughter the best!
A year ago, I was just a few weeks past losing my brother, who was 49. He was fit, into sports, ate well, but his heart just gave out. I was 20- 25 pounds heavier than I am now, starting in a new situation at my job that was also highly stressful. I knew I had to do something, but didn't really act on it until April of this year. A combination of my brother's birthday coming around and then my weight being the highest it has been in my adult life kicked my butt into gear. I started exercising, eating better, dropped ten pounds, and then started the Ideal Protein program at the end of summer. I am doing this for myself and for my family.
