Being extremely overweight can have some major health problems. For years I have been going down a road that was shortening my life expectancy.
Matt and my family were very concerned about me. I, at the time though, thought that they were just nagging. For years my family were telling me that I needed to lose weight. I always knew I did but at the time I couldn’t see a way out of this unhealthy lifestyle I had got myself into.
One thing I have always said I wanted to do was live long enough to see the kids grow up get married and have kids of there own. I know that there are no guarantees in life but with me being so overweight and unhealthy I was reducing the odds considerably.
Today is my Nans 96th birthday and she has had 3 children, 5 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren My niece is also expecting her first baby early next year and it looks like she could see at least one of her great great grandchildren too.
If I was my Nan and looking through her eyes I would be very happy and proud to have witnessed so much in my lifetime.
With what I have done this year, losing weight and eating healthier, I have definitely got a chance now of seeing the family grow and hopefully see many generations after me. Only if I am as fortunate as my Nan that is.
