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?
