DiscoveryChannel.ca - Obesity can be contagious: scientists
Me, twin sis and Mom are a great example of that. We have our ups and downs, but from our personal highs we are down over 330 pounds between the three of us. (That is almost as much as I used to weigh!) Both Mom and twin sis are keeping off 80+ and 60+ pounds respectively and both are still on their way down. Mom is such an inspiration to me. At her age (which is not that old at all to me anymore) I can't imagine how hard it is to retrain the body. But she is doing it, and her heading back to the gym this week was a big reason why I signed back up. You just have to keep trying and keep doing.
