So today I found some new motivation that I never wanted.
My ex FIL's (I'm still very close with the family) heart just stopped beating. My MIL found him when he was supposed to be napping and called 911. There is no way to know how long he was gone for, but it was all least ten minutes from the time he was found to the time the ambulance showed. He was revived, but there is no chance for survival. He will have another heart attack within days if his wife doesn't decide to stop life support before then.
FIL was so unhealthy. He is very overweight, he smokes, drinks, and eats about the worst I have ever seen anyone eat. MIL does the same. It was horrible to see him that way today, and I still don't know how to tell my DS.
This was some serious motivation that I never wanted. Looking at FIL in that bed today made me realize how important it is to be healthy. I know I won't be around forever, but I don't want to go like that :(. Poor FIL and MIL. My heart is broken for them.
As for myself, I started this journey at 234lbs in January, and I am down to 199lbs today. I will keep going for sure, and I know how important it is to be healthy, especially now. My heart is broken tonight :(
