But in a good way.
Since there has been several in our blogging circle tackling weight issues to improve their health, I wanted to share a couple of success stories.
Almost two years ago my daughter ended a relationship and decided it was time to drop some weight. A lot of weight. She started on a vegan diet and combined with an exercise plan, has lost 70 pounds. And has kept it off. She now eats chicken, fish, and turkey, but has stayed away from pork and beef.
Sonny Boy, not to be outdone, tipped the scales on New Years Day at 250 pounds. Although he didn't opt for the vegan diet, he did cut out red meat and started on the PX90 exercise program. Yesterday he told me he was down to 180. His goal is 170, then hold there.
Between the two of them, that's 140 pounds. So I figure that equals one kid.
I know losing weight in your twenties is easier than when you get older, but the fact that both of them were able to formulate a plan, then have the discipline to stick with it makes me a proud papa!
Way to go youngins. Good job!
