Good morning, Chris!! I hope to find you well. Years ago, a friend who is healthy and fit asked me, Nancy. I know you are focused because you got your Master's degree, but why can’t you lose weight. It really hurt my feelings because I knew that I wasn't eating healthy or exercising regularly, but I didn't know why I didn't have the same strength and focus to lose weight and be healthy like I did for my education.
Unfortunately, my lack of strength and attention has affected my daughter physically. She now is a plus size teenager. Currently, I have been experiencing a lot of life changing events. I find myself turning to the Lord, meditation, and now physical fitness. My goal is to get myself and my daughter back living life with better and healthier choices. It is very difficult to speak about my weight and how I failed my daughter. However, our journey is to be truthful with every accomplishment and failure. I need to face the choices that I have made for the sake of our future health.
I will be honest with you. Asking for help is the most difficult thing that I’m doing, but I’m not in the position anymore to do this by myself. Monica and I are MAKIN' MOVES to live a healthier life and to be part of a group of women, men, and children that are there to support us through our journey as we will be there through theirs. Thank you for MAKIN' MOVES accessible and affordable for all of us. With that in mind, I have to face my demon. i.e. the scale.
Monica and I humbly share our weight with MAKIN' MOVES to document our journey to a healthier life. Nancy 259 lbs and Monica 236lbs. *deep breath and teary eye* Our journey begins…
