emoticon to the team Carol. It's great to have you on board. All the best to your daughter for the duration of her pregnancy. I know how stressful this must be for all of you. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your daughter that all goes well.

My name is Carol and I'm been with SparkPeople for 5 years. I only belong to a few favorite teams but this team's name called to me. I became a Grandma (Mimi) in Sept. 2010 and as we know this brings glorious times and feelings. Along with the joy comes sorrow as my son and his wife had a miscarriage in Oct. 2011 and my daughter gave birth to a baby girl Grace last February who died shortly after birth. However, God has blessed my son and his wife with a baby girl who will be born at the end of this month. My daughter is also pregnant again and due in April. The baby (a girl) is fine but my daughter had to have a circlage done to prevent early labor. This has been a rough go for her mentally. She deals with constant anxiety at the fear of another loss. I can't help but feel some of that too!

I am old enough to know there are hard times that can't be avoided, but young enough to hope all goes well! Thanks for listening Grandmas and Grandpas - I wish you well! emoticon

Hi everyone.

When I joined sparkpeople I had 5 grandchildren. I now am expecting #11 in April.

My grandchildren live in Washington State, North Carolina and the one we are expecting
lives in Kansas at the time. Parents are military, so this may change without notice.

We had 7 of our grandchildren for Thanksgiving and when mom returned home she delivered
#8.

We wish they all lived closer. But we have pictures of them all, all over the house.

I'm a grandmother of 5 and one on the way, in May I will be up to 5 granddaughters and one grandson-he's the eldest. Three of my five children have blessed me with these wonderful gifts.
I'm glad I was invited to join the team even if I took my time signing on. Looking forward to cheering people on and getting a boost now and again from my sparkfriends.

Welcome WRKELSAY and congratulations on being a new grandma. I've gained 5 grandchildren since 2007. It seems when my two children started to have babies, they didn't waste time. There is nothing better.

You are wise to begin your weight loss early. Sparkpeople has a lot of tools and loads of encouragement to offer. Best wishes as you make your journey.

well I stopped by several weeks ago and introduced myself , but then i procrastinated and lost a few weeks , so here I go again, Im almost 50 , a wife mother, grandmother, LPN in a nursing home who works night shift, an insomniac, and an emotional eater. I also found that I eat when I am bored and sometimes find i am searching the fridge right after i just ate something. so I have to find things to occupy my time rather than run to the fridge all the time.

So how is everyone? hope i didn't miss out on to much , am looking for ward to chatting with everyone.

Hi..I'm Sarah and nana to a 3 year old granddaughter and an 8 month old grandson.

I hope and pray that none of you have ever had to go through custody issues related to your grandchild. My son has been fighting for the longest time to get more time with his daughter...it has been a pure nightmare......

There's nothing wrong with using the word "diet". It comes from the Greek word "diaita", meaning way of life. So to lose weight and keep it off we need to change our way of life.

You probably have a different temperament than I do. I'd probably tell him to "back off".
I'm lucky, I guess. My hubby belongs to the Lions' Club, and does his thing. We do go to the gym together, and I keep us on our diets.

BESCATS, I do have 2 Labradors Retrievers and 1 cat. The situation is that I feel that my personal space has been invaded. I feel he supervises me all day long.

Going to the gym is a nice idea, thanks.

Hi Carmen, and welcome to the team. I am fairly new to the team too. My husband retired 6 years ago, and I retired about a year ago. I guess I can't be of much help because we have been empty-nesters for quite a few years now. We have 2 Mini-Schnauzers, and they are our children now. We also ave 2 cats. I don't know if you have animals or not, but they do help keep you loving, and caring for something that needs you.
Also, start having special "date nights" together. Take up something like going to the gym together. We do !! You can also try volunteer work. Good luck. emoticon

If you haven't failed, you haven't lived !

Laugh, and the world laughs with you !!

I am Carmen form lovely San Juan, Puerto Rico.

I am an staying at home First grade teacher. I have 3 grown up girls, living on their own, up in the states, one in PA and 2 in TX.

I have one lovely, little, precious granddaughter named Sofia, that lives in San Antonio. My husband has retired 6 months ago, and living the empty nest with him at home has caused me a lot of troubles and sorrows that I do not understand, can anyone give ,me some light and suggestions on enjoying this part of my life, please?

Hi everyone! I'm a new Grandma and it's been a long journey! My oldest daughter gave birth to twin boys Brady and Patrick on June 18th. The boys were not due until October 5th - our little micro-preemies. They weighed 1 lb 9 oz. and 1 lb 2 oz at birth, and every day since their arrival has been filled with both joy and fear! They are both finally home with Mommy and Daddy in Florida, and this Grammy is heading back next week to give them some more loving! They are truly our miracle babies!

Hi all. Thanks for the invite Marj. I too am a proud grandma of 2 beautiful girls. I am not called grandma, however, because when my oldest was just learning how to talk she called me dima and it;s stuck. I call it diva grandma (lol). my princesses are Lyla age 6 and Evalyn age 2 1/2. I recently turned 60 this past September. My husband is retired but I still work for the State of Delaware in Education. Looking forward to meeting other fellow grandparents and sharing stories.
