Daughter, Mother & Grandmother

My grandmother died just recently, 2 weeks short of being 101. She did not get there by being 100 pounds over a healthy weight! But I do remember her being much heavier when I was a child (at barely 5 feet she topped out at 160). She was very active even then. I am pretty sure she lost most of her excess poundage by walking. She did not drive, she walked, she took the stairs, she gardened. I miss her...

I want to enjoy my granchildren and see them become adults, and hopefully see my great if not great-great grandchildren. I worry that my 5 year old grandaughter (the one that owns my heart) won't be as healthy as she should be because of poor eating habits she learned at my table. I want to change that for all of us!

I want to be healthy!

Laura, saw your post about the Ft Vancouver 6k. Having done it twice I can assure you that there are probably more walkers than runners for the 6k. It's a beautiful course and an almost completely level route. Hope you'll be able to join us.

I was reading your post on the message board about eating out, and just about fell over when you mentioned the Pixie Kitchen! We used to go to it when I was really little on our annual trip to the coast :) Best of luck in your journey!
