My Ah Ha Moment

Thursday, April 08, 2010

This has been the sadest week of my life. My 38 year old Uncle passed away of a massive heart attack. He is only 4 years older than me and he was not a very unhealthy person. he was a lil on the heavy side but he got plenty of exercise everyday. So this was a shock to all of us. He leaves behind a wife and 2 teenage children. I dont want this to happen to my kids. They are just babies they can't live without me. So I have made a decision to get my butt in gear and get this weight off me right now. I am too many meds to put this off any longer. I am going to find me a good doctor that will put me on the right meds I need to be on and that is willing to help me get healthy. I'm not ready to leave my family they still need me.

    Sorry for your loss. It appears that the loss will have a good effect in your life even as you grieve. Move forward to a healthier life.

    I too am sorry for your loss. This is the 3rd one I have heard of since Easter, that has passed on at such a young age.

    You CAN do it for your family!

    Heather,

    It is sad that you lost your uncle at such a young age. Perhaps his last gift to you is your "aha". You can use it as a gift to YOUR family so that you can be there for them. Take it one day, one meal, one exercise at a time. Consistency is the key to winning this.

    If you go to a doctor and they are not helpful, find another one. They are out there.

    Heather,
    Again I am so sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my prayers.

    I feel the same way we need to lose the weight before its to late. We have to much to live for. SO, I am on board with ya. If there is anything I can do just give me a call. I will help in anyway I can and I know I need the help as well. I am on a mission to get my whole family healthy not just me.
