My daughter has been my inspiration in getting healthy. I want her to have a healthy and active mom who she could admire. Being healthy isn’t about being a certain weight or a certain dress size, but about making healthy choices when needed and being able to run, play, and keep up with your child. Sure I would love to reach a certain weight or dress size, but skinny doesn’t always mean healthy.
I have began eating healthy by choosing vegetables and fruit over cakes and cookies (though, I do like to indulge occasionally). I also have begun exercising and sitting away from the computer or TV.
Both of my parents are very active people and kept my siblings and I active as well. I think it is very important to do the same for my daughter and needless to say that if my daughter could admire me as much as I admire my parents, then I have done it right.
