I have heard it all before but heres what really got me: On the Doctors, there was a man who wouldnt stop smoking and he had issues that put him at even higher risk for an early grave.
His family recorded a short movie called "Life after Jack" showing interviews of what they missed about their dad/husband/brother. I immediately was filled with thoughts of my family without me, what would they say, what would I miss, would I be missed, how could I knowingly leave them early to fend the world on their own!
It took seconds for me to be in tears. I really dont have any excuse but selfishness for why I dont take better care of myself!
I feel horrible about where I have let myself get to but the good news is that I am only 28 and not 48 and still have time to fix it.
I can see myself as a happy, healthy, active mom/wife/daughter. I honestly have to make a life change. I must be more active. I must make healthy food choices to fuel a healthy happy body.
I am so very ready and will never be perfect but will work to be a good example.
