I’ve completed 14 days so far..but i took 2 weeks off after getting an upper respitory infection, but i was back at it today. Since starting the program Ive only lost 2 pounds, but, i lost a total of 7 inches, and that to me is amazing. My clothes are fitting much better and I just look smaller, even if just a little :) I think i’m just going to “restart” the program. I have 28 more pounds to loose:) So I guess today was my day one again!

My two beautiful sons have this stupid disease.
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), hit my family in the back of the head in August 2009 when both of my children were diagnosed with it. I’ve heard of muscular dystropy before, but I didn’t know much about it. I’ve NEVER heard of DUCHENNE md before though.
They’ll be in power wheelchairs somewhere between 10 and 12, and they’ll loose their strength. Though men with duchenne md are living longer, most won’t make it to see their 30th birthday, and many are taken in their teens and early 20s.
I want so badly for a cure to be found. But who knows how long away that day is. So for now, i live in the moment, and enjoy our time with them as much as possible. I raise awareness as best as i can, and i do fundraiser when i can. I loveeee my children so much<3
