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!

Thanks for the comment on the pic of my mom. Since that picture was taken, she has gotten her own laptop and she loves it. She isn't as adventurous as your mom, though. She doesn't shop online, and she's never used social media (other than email). Her faves are email and games. I've tried to show her some different things, and she humors me, but she is just not interested. Oh, to be so content!
