This is Abby and Cloe playing in grandma's yard.
My lovley daughter Amanda, standing at our newly built castle wall.
This is Gabby helping grandma with her cobblestone patio.
This Grandma has five granddaughters, five and under. Three of them were born with spina-bifida, and I need to get fit to haul!!! These girls cannot walk, and quite often need to be carried so cardio and weight training, here I come. I'm 52 years old, and I married a great man, six years ago. That's when the weight started coming on. I love to cook, but I didn't cook for myself when I lived alone.
When my first granddaughter was born with spina-bifida and a heart condition, it was extra hard to eat healthy running back and forth to the hospital. Now after many surgeries and four more granddaughters my life has time for me. Or at least The Lord has opened the door for me to take the time if I wish to, and I do wish to.
The Lord is the light in my life, and I trust he will lead me to where I need to be.
I pray all of you will meet your goals, and I will be meeting mine, now that I have found all of you.
I want to lose 60 pounds by the end of June.
I would like to lose at least 2 pounds a week, but will be happy with any amount.
First to ask Jesus to guide me and give me the will power and strength to get it done.
I joined curves for cardio, and I am learning strength training on home vidios.
I will try to be here daily.
My husband and I live out in the country, on three acres of land, filled with fruit and nut trees, garden space, and herb and flower gardens. We love being outside. We both work, but we can not agree more that there is no place like home!!!
We have three house dogs, Buddy our bassett hound, Dale Wesson our mini dachshund, and El Guapo our mini Shih Tzu Poo.
My favorite movies are:
Fried Green Tomatoes and Secondhand Lions.
I love to cook, I was a chef for 20+ years, and love to learn new dishes.
Thank you so much for your encouraging words. The funny thing is that you recently left the comment on my page. Though I have been a member since 2006, I only came back to this site yesterday to find your lovely comment. I look forward to reading more about you and your precious Grandchildren. I have 5 children of my own, my oldest son is blind. I have worked with handicapped children since I was in school. Again, thank you! Penny

What an inspiration you are and I know a great help with your grandlovies. I also have had special needs children who are all now wonderful mature adults. (for the most part). LOL I also have 2 grandlovie girls who have brain tumors, so I can feel your stress and overwhelming feeling at times. But as you do...I rely on the Lord to carry me daily. I will keep you and your family and lovies in my prayers. May you have a Jesus Blessed week. In His Grip, Jude
