76 Years Old ~~ Still Going Strong!

My word for 2015: Adaptability
Theme for May: "Stay focused, track food, exercise!"

My name is Eve. The older you get the harder to lose! I have spent my entire life as a slim, healthy woman. Then at the age of 50 my slim, trim 124 zoomed up to 150 -- and while that may seem like nothing to some of you; I am only 5'2" tall, and it meant exchanging my size 6 to 8 and moving into a size 14! It seemed to happen right before my eyes without me seeing it. In fact, as the years ...
My word for 2015: Adaptability
Theme for May: "Stay focused, track food, exercise!"

My name is Eve. The older you get the harder to lose! I have spent my entire life as a slim, healthy woman. Then at the age of 50 my slim, trim 124 zoomed up to 150 -- and while that may seem like nothing to some of you; I am only 5'2" tall, and it meant exchanging my size 6 to 8 and moving into a size 14! It seemed to happen right before my eyes without me seeing it. In fact, as the years went by I became used to the new weight and ignored it. At 62 I became a widow, and later with dating, the scale found its way up to 162. By the time I turned 69 I decided it was time to take action and in Dec. '07 I joined SP. It's been a learning experience, but I wanted to go slow and steady, and did just that.

For me, it's not a DIET, it's a new Healthy Lifestyle, a change in your habits and activity level and is something that will be with me forever! At the present time I am close to my goal, but even if I stay at this weight, I'm not unhappy.

I am staying positive and try to adapt to the changes that come into my life; just looking for the best in life, it's the only way to stay young and healthy. It's wonderful that people of any age can attain it ~~like that elusive fountain of youth, and that's my goal in life! Remember, "life is what you make it!" Look for the silver lining in every cloud!

By the way, if you're looking for friends -- you're in the right place! EVERYONE on here is a friend as we most likely have the same attitude about healthy living!

So sorry to hear about the situation, glad the cats are there to help you handle the worst of the stress. Hang in there.. do what you can and don't worry (too much) about what is beyond your control. Take care of yourself so you can be there for your DD when she needs you.
I'll be thinking of you.

Eve, your new kitties sound adorable and I love the names, especially KC - mydaughter's initials are KC and she was called that when she was little, now she goes by Kate :) So you see I am biased...
Enjoy them, they change and grow so fast! You may even end up keeping them...
