Hi! I'm Linnie. The reason I'm here is because I want to get rid my excess weight. My weight has caused me to have sleep apnea, thyroid surgery, ankle surgery, fatty liver disease, bad knees and oh I could just go on. Our kids are grown and have left the nest. Now we have 4 beautiful grandchildren. My mother was obese and left us prematurely in 2008 at the age of 68. I don't want to leave my family that young. In fact I want to live life to the fullest and be the "cool" grandma. It really hit me when my 4 year old grand daughter asked me "grandma, why are you fat?" It motivated me enough to start to eat better and live better. Without our health we have nothing!
