No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
My daughter and I are overweight, solid, muscular, large-boned. My husband and son are very skinny and tall. My husband and I have discussed (and fought) at length how to parent two children with very different dietary needs. In the end, we decided that we are all in this together: healthy eating and fitness. We all eat our "new vegetable of the month" together and we all get Diary Queen for a treat together. We are all trying to get each other moving more and cheering each other on. When my daughter and I threw out our favorite unhealthy foods, the husband and son did, too. I feel good about how we are approaching this situation, but I have to wonder if treating the kids the same is harmful in the long run. I would love to hear what other people and families do when it comes to diet, weight loss, weight gain, and fitness. How do you handle it?
