Well, yesterday I attended a beauty pageant, surrounded by "beautiful"people. I have been chubby all my life. Always maybe ten pounds overweight. Never really anymore than that. I weighed only 128 lbs. when I got pregnant for the first time.

Never have I thought of myself as fat, until now, only because I really am. I took a really good look in the mirror and I didn't like what I saw, AT ALL. My family doesn't fuss at me, but I'm worried about me now. There was a past pageant contestant there that won in 1959. She was 70 years old. She looked better than I do. I don't have any health issues, at least not yet. I noticed my ankle was a little swollen over the weekend. I have got to get rid of this weight!

I am looking forward to taking it off in the coming weeks with "The Biggest Grandma Loser Challenge". I hope everyone does well. I want to be around for many, many more years to come, and I know it's gonna take some work, but I figure I have to do it now. I'm 53. In 8 months I'll be 54. Time seems to go so much faster as we get older, and before you know it I'll be 60, 70, 80....... That's a lot of years left, so I have to get healthy now, so I can stay healthy!!! I would love to hold my great grandchildren!!

My Goals:
I want to get back to a comfortable weight. One where I'm able to go out and horse around with the kids and the grandkids.


My Program:
Following a low calories, lots of exercise program that I make up as I go along, based on info from years ago when I was in Weight Watchers. It really seems to work.

    Hi Sandy! Sure nice to have you back and I see you are as busy as ever! Sorry you are still having trouble with the hip and leg. That can be so frustrating!! My knee is still giving me problems and probably will till I have to get it replaced. I can get the shots and they help for awhile and if I keep at my exercises that helps too. I'm not always good at that! I just push through, and I see you do to. Take care and talk to you soon!

    Sandy, thank you so much for the comment on my blog. I am so glad to see that you are back, hopefully. Mamie is an angel and cheerleader in heaven for sure and I know she would fuss if she saw anyone being sad. She was ready to go home to Jesus and not be sick anymore. (((HUGS))) Linda Kay
