It’s a Family affair our journey to healthier lifestyle


I am celebrating to the moon and back.  My son who is 14 years old and is  5’9, has loss 6 pounds a week since he started working out with the JV team at the high school for the football team.   They have 17 football state titles under their belt.  So this is a really good program here in South Carolina and they take football really serious.  Nevertheless let get back to my son…he has lost 6 pounds for 3 weeks straight with a total lost of 18 pounds so far.  He just started spring training 3 weeks ago.  He is also eating really healthy and has cut out all fast foods and sweets.  He is my Hercules, I catch him flexing in the mirror all the time looking at his muscles as they form in his arms.  He has some belly fat and is working on his abs also.

My daughter who is 19 years old and is a sophomore in college has also embarked on our healthy quest.   She is actively attending the YMCA at least 3 to 4 days a week exercising and eating healthy.  She is working at Zaxby’s and has been for about 5 years.  She is eating a lot of grilled chicken and salads.  She is my she-hero.

Last but not least my husband has finally joined us all and is watching and monitoring everybody eating habits to make sure we are all successful.   He is usually the last one to join because he really loves to eat.  But he said he wants to lose weight and get healthy also.  He stands a lot on his job and knows that weight lost will help with his standing for 12 hours on his job

Now my next goal is to start working on Shelly the Belly and defining Bertha the Butt so it will look like Serena Williams the tennis star after my surgery.  Mrs. William is my favorite female athlete and I just love everything about her.   I recently told my husband that I want calf’s and butt just like her.   He laughs and told me he agrees with me saying “I would love for you to have Serena’s body makeup.”

Peace, Love and Happiness

Mrs. Tracy

  1. I know how I feel about getting healthier, but it must be greater knowing that the example that you’ve set is starting to impact those that are nearest and dearest to you.


    • It does and since all of us have weight problems, I am really happy about that. My kids see how many medical problems I am having so it motivates them to take care of their health at an earlier age.


    • Thanks! I believe all of my health conditions are motivation for my kids. They see all of my health problems which are causes by my long term weight problems.
