Hi my name is Shirley and I am 67 years old. My daughter Kim introduced me to myfitnesspal. I am a mom with three grown daughters and three sons. I have eight grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren. My youngest son is a quadriplegic due to a drunk driver hitting him and snapping his brain stem. I have been taking care of him for the last 24 years.

Due to health problems and my daughter getting on to me I have decided to lose these extra pounds I have gained. She is my support system and we are working on this together as she is a member here as well.

    Looks to me like you're already beautiful inside and out, but at least you can be healthier when your daughter gets her degree. :smile:
