Was your family athletic when you were growing up?

Just wondering how many people are fit and exercise regularly because your parents were very active.

  • My parents weren't active at all! I developed a habit of working out when I was 15 when my family was making fun of me for being a little over weight I weighed 145. From then on I always work out even now having a 13month old and 6months pregnant. I might walk a little too much while being pregnant but I like staying fit and my dd loves being outside.

  • We weren't active b/c of me. I have very bad asthma and until about 10 years ago they didn't have a medication that would control it enough for me to exercise. I am just now starting to get in shape and lose weight. I workout while my DD is up and she tries to exercise too. At 2 1/2 it is really cute while she runs with me or tries to some different yoga poses and stretches.
