I'm from Colorado and have 3 wonderful grandbabies (of course, aren't they all) from age 5 months to 2 1/2 yrs. Got the opportunity to spend the week of the 4th with all of them at our house. It was really fun, but I don't remember it being so hard to keep the house straightened up when our kids were that age as it was with my 3 "little hurricanes" visiting. Maybe it was just because we were younger and could keep up easier or I"ve just forgot how cluttered our house was when my kids were babies, ha ha.

I need to lose 40 pounds but an starting off small setting my goal to lose 18 lbs by Nov. I have lost one since joining in July 4. Looking forward to seeing how everyone else is feeling and losing.

Thanks BamaJam2 ! I agree about your comment on walking on eggshells. Hopefully the parents will calm down. Oh, btw, they are moving the end of the month to a new house, so it has been very hard on them since the new Mommy can't do much but we are trying to all pitch in. Phew. That should make it easier, I hope !

Twin grandsons---how exciting for all the family!! I can guess too that this can mean more than a little "drama"--- with such an EVENT. You should not have to walk on eggshells, however, --- It is not comfortable!
Hope the little guys are progressing very well. . .

God grant me the strength to reach my goal.

Hi, I am a new Grandmom - June 8th, 2014, identical twin boys born early and so they are spending their time in the NICU. They are 32 weeks. Lots of tension in the family and although joyful, it's like walking on eggshells. Tomorrow I will see them again ! Amazing how you can fall in love with them so quickly. Oh and I have not held either, as they are too tiny yet. emoticon

Hi Everyone,

I have been on Sparks for the past 7 months, thought not really very active... I see most of you are all young grandparents, well I am an oldie here, in fact all our grand kids are grand parents themselves.

I am 86, will be 87 next Jan, have been married for 70 years & my DH will be 93 in August.
I have 2 children and daughter who is 69 and a son who is 67.
I live with my son's family.... we are a small 17 member clan spread over 5 generations under one roof.
I have 5 grand kids, 2 girls - 49 & 44 and 3 boys - 51 and twins who are 46.
I have 13 great-grand kids - 5 girls between 28 and 17 4 of whom are married and 8 boys between 30 and 18 of which 4 are married
I have 7 great-great-grands, my newest set of great-great-grands were born las week. and expecting 2 more great-great-grands by November. 3 DGGGDs & 4 DGGGS.
This is for my immediate family.

But also have a host of great-nieces and nephews who are great-grand parents themselves. The Lord has been kind to bless us with so many people to love.....
In fact in my city and the church we go to, most people who know DH and me refer to us as Appappan (Grandpa) & Ammamma(Grandma) as we are one of the senior most church going couple.

You can read more about me on my page & in my blogs....I am almost close to my goal weight but need to be on maintenance.

Lovely meeting so many grandmas & grandpas

Hugs & Prayers
Mani

Hi everyone. I've just discovered this team, and I am proud to say that I am at last a granny. My granddaughter was born on May 6th, so it's very recent. I can't believe how wonderful it is. Unfortunately I'm 600km away (I live in France) so I won't see her very often.
I've been a member of SP for what seems like years, and do not make much progress. But I run and have done 3 HMs and a few 10k races.

Greetings, all! I am a 53 yo gma of a 2 1/2 yo (Braeden) and expecting another (Jacob) in July. Brae has been the joy of all joys! But now he's saying "come on, gama, do it!" And I can't 😒. Trying for the umpteenth time to change my lifestyle. Re-connected to Sparkpeople and praying I can be dedicated to the goal this time round!

Hi fellow grandparents.
I am the proud grandmother of 4, 2 boys and 2 girls. I have 3 children and my eldest daughter, Amanda is the mother of all four. My kids are this girl, 38 on the 19th Nov, Sarah--35 on the 15th Dec and Matthew--26 on 20th Aug. My girl followed my example and her kids are Brandon--16, Sionna--15 on 30th Dec, and Violet--5 and Damien--3. Neither of the big gaps was planned.
I used to see my grandkids every day as we lived a few blocks apart for years, then we all shared a house for 4 years and I babysat. Now they live about 25 miles away on the other side of the river and neither of us has a car so I see them seldom and miss them constantly.
My girlfriend is very fond of saying that the best reason for having kids is so you can have grandkids and wouldn't it be nice if they came first. I agree in part but I loved raising my kids; 95% of the time anyway and truly hope that they hold great memories of their childhoods that they will want to repeat with their own. My daughter actually does do a lot of the same things with her babes that I did with her.
*There is a pic of my Amanda on the site--if you notice the announcement showing people that like Spark newsletters there is a pic of a girl on the grass with pretty cream satin dress spread around her. That's my girl on her wedding day in July.*

I believe absolutely in my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Hi all! New to the team. I started Sparking at the beginning of May. I've needed to get healthier for a while, but kept putting it off. Now I have a deadline/goal to work toward, since I'm taking my grandgirls on a cruise next May. I want to be able to be as active as possible with them on our dream vacation, so I'm highly motivated.

I've been doing great staying in range, and I've been swimming in the mornings before work. The scale has only gone down 5 pounds in my first six weeks, but I've gone down two pant sizes in that time and I'm seeing health benefits already. Must be that swimming!

My grandgirls are 4 and 9. Last week the nine year old overheard that I'm working on getting healthier, and that I've had to buy new pants for work. The look of pride on her face was priceless. She did warn me not to "get too skinny." I told her I didn't think she'd ever have to worry about that! I have a long way to go, and surely won't make it all the way there by next May. But I can make a lot of progress between now and then, and that's what I plan to do.

~Val~

A dream without a plan is just a wish.

Hi I am Brenda both myself and hubby Brian need to lose weight. Myself its been hard was really sick and lost lots of weight..but now have gained it all back, plus a bit more. Brian he has knee problems, has had surgery once and now needs another, but too you, and he is too much overweight. We are grandparents of 8 lovely children. We want to be healthy and able to have a future with the kids.
I was a member, then stopped, now I cant remember how to get back on. I cant remember how to receive daily emails from this programs, on recipes, or daily sparks. Also is there a program that both Brian and I can come on together, I know we can do it separate, but the more we do together the better support we will be to each other. Thanks hope to hear from someone soon. WE NEED YOUR HELP

HI, I'm Becky
I have been a member for a long time BUT I have not been here for a long time so I thought I should reintroduce myself to the group. I have been battling my weight every since my son was born he is 33, I lose weight and for many reason I give up, I want to change this and get the weight off and keep it off but I know winter is the hardest time for me, I have a treadmill so I have no excuse. I read so MANY SUCCESS STORIES ON HERE and I want to be one of them. I can be honest and say I am trying, I have walked twice this week and went shopping and walked a lot yesterday, shopping is not walking fast but up and moving and I think it all helps. I have two grand children and another one on the way she should be here around July 19. maybe before, my daughter didn't carry her other two full term so she may come any time. I want to be a healthy grandma

trust GOD, love yourself and think positive!
Becky

Welcome all! Glad to see you here!

Never underestimate the power of a kind word or deed.

Happines is not based on possessions, power, or prestige, but on relationships with people you love and respect.

Hi! I am new to the team. I have 10 grandkids ranging in age from 23 to 5. The 5 year old has Downs Syndrome but she is the love of my life, she has so much love to give. Of the 10 grandkids only 2 talk to me because I left my husband because of years of abuse (emotional) from my husband and children. I moved from WI to FL 3 years ago. I miss my grandkids so much, but someday they will realize I did what I had to do to save myself. I am happy to have found this group of grandparents to discuss the achievements of my precious grandkids that I love unconditionally.

Hello! I have four grand daughters and one grandson. We all live within a 12 mile radius of each other and it is great to be near all the grand kids. The twins are eleven and our GS is the youngest and just turned six in December. I am not new to Spark People, but new to this team.
Hope to get to know you lovely folks!
