I am so proud of my daughter. She has had a problem controlling her weight most of her life. With diabetes and heart disease running in the family, I have always been very concerned that the extra weight was going to cause her problems with her health. She has always liked junk food and has never liked working out.
Recently a new 24 hour gym opened close to our house. She surprised me by getting the radio station that she works for to get us both a years membership. She got mine by telling her boss that she needed me to go to push her. She has went with me practically every night since then and that was two weeks ago. She is doing over a mile now each time on the treadmill, which is her favorite piece of equipment to use. The main problem that she has had is with her feet hurting, but she keeps going and trying. When we started she weighed 385 and she has since lost 10 pounds. She has even made the comment that she has a couple of blisters on her feet, but that in the long run it will be worth it.
