Tell Your Story


I was raised on a farm in Indiana.

I was a skinny little tomboy.

I left small town usa and went to college in downtown Chicago.

I met "Grandpa" and fell in love in February 1974 and got married in July 1977.

At this point I was still eating whatever I wanted and in a size 2 wedding dress.

Then I got pregnant 5 times and had three lovely little babies.

Life went by, and the babies grew up and I still ate whatever I wanted.

I lost weight and found it over and over again.

In the summer of 2013 I was diagnosed with breast cancer.

After the mastectomy I was prescribed 5 years of the "chemo" pill.

It's main side effect is excessive weight gain.

In September of 2017 I began the journey of "Grandmas Getting Healthy." 

In July of 2018 I will be cancer free for 5 years, and done with the meds.

But this Grandma will stay on the Getting Healthy journey. 

Wanna join me?
