I'm hoping to journal my weight loss and that of my son. I had a rude awakening the other day after watching my 9 year old son get on the scale. We already know he has borderline high cholesterol but initially we thought it was just an anomaly because of a growth spurt, but in light of the fact of his continued weight gain, he and I are starting a new journey together. A journey to get fit and get healthy. I've even designed "contracts" for each of us to sign committing to helping each other and working together for change.
