Honor Your Mother By Taking Charge Of Your Weight Problem

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — @ May 14, 2006

Happy Mother’s Day to moms everywhere today. On behalf of the children you have given life to, I want to say THANK YOU for being such an incredible influence on our lives because we wouldn’t be here without you. Literally!

But some people have a hard time with their mother because they blame her for their obesity. How silly!

bq. Mom may have contributed to our obesity inasmuch as we had to eat the foods she bought us when we were growing up. But that was 20 years ago! The excuse that people give about being “genetically” overweight is just plain ridiculous to me. Sure, you may have been in an environment during your childhood that made you more susceptible for gaining weight and eating unhealthy, but that doesn’t mean you have to stay there once you move out of the house and become an adult!

Instead of playing the blame game with your mother, how about giving her the best Mother’s Day present you could ever give her — commit to a healthy lifestyle change and take charge of your weight problem yourself!

bq. Mom may even feel a little guilty that she passed on some poor eating habits to you when you were growing up, so this may be just the thing to brighten her special day even more. Then go DO IT!
