Stuck at 25 - Musings of a Chubby Grandma

#11 I've still got it!

During the 2 years prior to having my last baby I taught Aerobics.
Some friends I knew had a little exercise place, they needed an instructor.
I applied, did the training, and got the job.
Aerobics were very popular then - like running is today.
More and more customers signed up. Those of us who worked there taught more and more
I was in such good shape! I even had a six pack or something like that. I don't think we counted them back then.
I could take my kids to work with me (we had a great babysitter), I could eat anything I wanted. I loved that job! But the doctor made me quit teaching when I was 6 months pregnant - he said I was too old (34) and to far along.
I have been blaming that OBGYN for my chubbiness these past 26 years - it is his fault!
Well I am quite a bit older now, but I've still got it - the six pack that is - it's just wrapped in bubble wrap!
