I am a grandma looking forward to seeing my grandchildren grown and maybe someday holding my great-grandchildren. I presently have 2 grandsons who live within 3 blocks of my house and 2 granddaughters who have been living with me and papa for 7 years. We have 2 grandsons about 11/2 hours away and another grandson in another state. I woke up finally realizing that if I don't make some healthy changes in my life, I may not see these guys graduate from high school. Not acceptable! I have type 2 diabetes (Dec 2009), high blood pressure and high cholesterol (2002 maybe), arthritis in my right hip, asthma, and several allergies. Changes have to be made.

I am looking forward to a healthier me. I am looking forward to many more years to spend with my family. I am looking forward...
