I was talking to my mom last night, and we were discussing how we need to exercise more. I already go to the gym, and ride my bike. But I know I’m not doing enough cardio to see the results I want to see. (I’m worried my weigh-in won’t be good today.)

From Thick To Thin: Family Holiday Weight Loss Challenge
And Mom walked a lot prior to hurting her foot, but it’s hard to get started again. When she leaves for work it’s dark outside, and now it’s dark when she gets home too.
So I asked her to participate in a challenge with me (that I made up on the spot hehe) in which we would walk three times a week for at least 20 minutes from now until January 1st. She agreed to do the challenge with me so I called my sister.
My sister, who gave birth to my beautiful baby niece in April, is working on shedding some weight too so I called her immediately after talking with Mom. And she agreed to do the challenge too! She also told me that she has lost 5 pounds too so congrats to her!
Then later last night, I spoke with Dad. I was excited to tell him about the weight loss challenge that Mom, Sis and I would be doing through the new year. And Dad, though he is already super duper active said it wouldn’t hurt him to lose 10 pounds. 🙂 So he’s going to join the challenge too.
So, you see? Even though my sister lives about 2,000 miles away. And my parents each live about 1,500 miles away, they are here for me when I need them. And I’m so thankful for it. Do I have a supportive family or what?!
If you’d like to join us in this holiday challenge, you are more than welcome to! Just let me know in a comment or by e-mail. Either way, wish us luck because it won’t be easy. But it will definitely be worth it. And I’m so thankful to have a mom, dad and sister who will remind me of that on days I need to hear it.
