This is a true honor for me to contribute to Mamavation this week to introduce our Sista of the Week. In case you did not notice I am not the regular contributor but this is a special post to commemorate our 12th Sista who I have loads of respect for.
This week’s Sista has been a part of the Sistahood for a while. It has been nice to see her work halfway towards her weight loss goal. She focuses on her family and their well-being in her blog so there may be a recipe or three you have made from there. She also has a pretty cool garden that she does with her family which is something I adore. I love her positivity but she keeps it real, when she has a bad day… she shares that too until she finally makes lemonade from lemons. I know she has commented on your posts, talked to you on twitter, and spread her support around for all of us.
This week’s Sista of the Week is….
1. Name (twitter ID): Lori (@gutimom)
2. Location: Houston, TX
3.Mamavation Goals: I am already down 15lbs and I would love to lose 15 more. Just knowing I am getting healthy for my kids is a huge thing for me. I want to have energy. I want to be able to play with them more and not get so tired. My mom is overweight and has a lot of medical issues because of it. I worry about her constantly. If the phone rings late at night I always wonder if that is the call that her heart has given out. I do not want that for my kids. I want them to know I am gonna be here for a long time, I am doing everything I can to make that happen.
5. Why do you think support in the Sistahood is so important? I know for me personally, without the Sistahood I would have thrown in the towel a long time ago. I am usually pretty down on myself and the Sistahood always lifts me back up to remind me that I am human. I make mistakes but I can also pick myself up and push past the negative.
Thank you Lori for all that you do for the Sistahood!
