I am a 53 yo grandma of 3 beautiful children. Roque 17, Alexandrea 14, Mason 7. The 2 older kids live in North Carolina and the youngest lives in Texas. My daughter died 6 years ago from leukemia, so that's why the kids are spread out. Unfortunately I don't get to see them as much as I'd like to. So this is how my weight gain came about the death of my daughter and loss of my grandkids, I died inside and eating took over. Before I knew it I'm 300 lbs from 143 lbs!! Not good. So I bought this program 2 years ago and put it in the closet and never tried it. I had my hip replaced May 12,14 and my sister-in-law came to stay with me and I was so embarrassed about my weight I drug the program out of the closet and asked her to do it with me. So with her help I have started.
