Grandkids, including the newest
Gardner family, Spring Break 2013
Us and our boys, Spring Break 2013
I'm a 50 something grandma who spent 2 years losing 60 pounds, and the next 5 gaining it back. I'm doing a little better this time, having lost 45 pounds since July, 2010. I'm happily married with 2 grown boys, one grandson, and a new granddaughter. My husband is on this journey with me.
I had already started on my weight loss journey before starting SparkPeople, so I have adjusted my Weight Tracker to show my highest weight, July 2010.
Update: I had set a personal goal to lose 50 pounds in a year - didn't quite make it. I've lost 45. Still working on it!
Get this weight back off to stay!

What a beautiful family! We are in Northern Illinois and enjoying the snow...but not the extreme cold. Stay warm and safe and keep up the amazing work! You look great! God is good! Cathy

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love the Cookeville, TN area! In order for me to go to my brother's house, we have to go through there via I-40. You're right, it's hilly since it's on the Cumberland Plateau. Beautiful country. Enjoy it there!
Have a fantastic weekend.
