The Drive to Get Healthy

A guy my husband has know his entire life passed away Saturday. He was 33. He had 11 heart attacks in 2 days (according to his wife). I only met him once but he and his wife have 2 small children. I feel incredibly bad for this family. But you know the part that really scares me is that it could have been John. Now this guy was not overweight and I am sure that there are other reasons that he had these massive heart attacks, but John is. And John has a long history of heart problems on both sides of the family. So we sat looking at each other Sunday morning and I just said "I don't want that to happen to you". So we are now on a drive to get healthy.

We both "hate" exercise (as in we both are too lazy to really keep it up), we both have bad knees (he had a motorcycle accident a few years ago that tore his to pieces and I have bone spurs in mine), and we don't have a whole lot of time together to make sure we do it everyday. And then there is the food. Diet food is horrible. And the only thing I can think to do is portion control and calorie counting. Mainly because I am not cooking 2 separate meals everyday and I have 2 kids that really need to put on weight (they have hollow legs because they eat ALL the time).

So we are on a drive to get healthy. Any low to no cost programs out there that y'all love?????
