A very early and chilly Saturday morning about three weeks ago, my family and I bundled up and huddled together along with at least a hundred others in line to ‘win’ a spot in the WXII Transformation Nation Triad. There were 125 accepted for the program at our YMCA and we were #s 3 and 4!! In an effort to help hold ourselves accountable to this challenge and maybe even inspire a person or two, we decided we would blog about our new journey to better health together! (Okay…I decided…but Ian is in agreement I swear!) 😉
Some information about the program: Over the next 16 weeks (and beyond for us!), Ian and I will be meeting with 23 others every Saturday morning. At each of these meetings we will be getting weighed, getting our butts handed to us and receiving excellent nutritional information and support. From what we’ve seen of other groups, this is definitely NOT going to be a ‘walk in the park’ by any means, but that’s not what we signed up for anyway! Our goals are to lose weight and inches (obviously) and to learn to enjoy a healthier and more active lifestyle. More importantly, we have two young men (Andrew and Ivan) who need their parents to set good healthy examples for them so that they don’t fall into the same traps we have!
Positive comments and suggestions are always welcome, as are your thoughts and prayers! We thank you in advance for your support and encouragement and we are looking forward to what ‘tomorrow’ will bring!
