Hi there, Glad to welcome you on board. I'm a 'mamgu' as well 5 bundles of joy (and hard work). I'm fairly new to the site but have found it very helpful so far. I also live near Bridgend and love to walk around Southerndown and Rest Bay especially on a day like today. Don't try to do too much at a time but take small steps and they will eventually turn into big steps.

You will find everything you need for sucess here on SP. I am fairly new tothis particular group, but I have been on SP for about 3 months. I have learned so much already about healthy eating and exercise, just remember small steps will take you a long way. Don't try to rush things, healthy weightloss stays off - crash dieting never works.
Good Luck on the start of your journey to a healthier ( and happier) you. Remember, your not alone, we are all here, just reach out and someone will answer.
Hi, and welcome. I'm a granny, my first grandson was born when I was 56, so you are way ahead. Think of it positively, you have longer to enjoy them. I have another grandson now, he's 18 months, and we find ourselves minding him quite often when my daughter is working. We moved up here when we got early retirement, and have never regretted it. I came across SparkPeople when I was looking for a good food calculator, which it is, but it's so much more as well. Hope you find the support you're looking for.
Think not. Do.
If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got.

welcome to the welsh sparks lol.wow a granny at 40 that is great,i am 47 but it will be a while before my kids make a granny i hope.i say that as they are only 9,6 and three.lol.anyway nice to see you.this is a great site and with will power,determination and above all knowledge you can do this.
I'm 41 years old, my kids are grown ups with babies of their own, which makes me.. a .. a.. GRANNY!!! When my daughters had their babies (within a year of each other) it coincided with my 40th year on this planet, and for once i had the time to look down at myself. I was disappointed, seemed to me I'd made time in my life to make other people feel happy, secure and successful, but always, for whatever reasons, put myself last. I'm now 28stone, which is harsh enough, but when you realise that I'm only 4ft 11, it makes me a lil barrel. My mobility is very limited and although I don't suffer with any major issues right now, I'm sensing my decline, and am worried that I'll be less than the person I feel that I am, less than the spirit that I can be. I know thats a bit poetical, but thats just who I am ;) I'm also in love, and truly want to go out and spend an active life with my fella, who enjoys archery, sailing, walking.. travelling and just growing old together and enjoying our lives. So my reasons for wanting to lose weight and get fit are.. for me.. for my children and grandchildren (what good is the park without Mammwynn to play with? (cornish for grandmother) and to spend my autumn years walking and sailing in the sunshine.. ;) I'd never heard of Spark people, and randomly fell accross it, perhaps karma.. Here's to success!!
Every journey starts with a step.. i add a hop and a jump for good measure!
