"The reason I initially came to RD was because my daughter was pregnant and I waited a very long time to have my first grandchild. They live in New York City and I had committed to babysitting once a week, traveling to New York City. We leave our house at 5:30 in the morning and we don’t come back until very late at night, so it’s a long day.
We’re very short, small people, but my granddaughter was huge! 96th percentile for height and 75th for weight. So I wanted to be able to work with her, help her, and now that she’s walking, run around with her. She’s become the center of our lives at this point.
If you’re not healthy and you’re not strong, there’s no way in the world you can keep up with grand-children. People that I know that are much younger than me, that haven’t exercised and haven’t watched their nutrition, they can’t enjoy their grandchildren. They can’t participate with their activities like someone who has taken better care of them-selves along the way."
