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 husband at the time (now deceased) and I started our own business and started eating all our meals in restaurants. My slim, trim 125 zoomed up to 150 -- seemingly overnight. I can truthfully say this happened right before my eyes without me seeing it. Yes, even as I bought larger clothing sizes it didn't seem to sink in -- in fact, as the years went by I became used to the new weight and ignored it. As I reached my 60's my activity level went down, but I never changed my eating habits to balance it. 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 you forever! At the present time I'm hoping to reach goal in 2012. It is now Nov. 1 as I edit this text, and I'm 10 pounds away. I could make it if I pushed hard -- time will tell.

I am staying positive and 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 that, like that elusive fountain of youth, and that's my goal in life!

By the way, if you're looking for friends -- you're in the right place! EVERYONE on here is a friend!

JESUS (the sweetest name I know) ~

His shed blood means we can live each day in His forgiveness.

His resurrection means we can walk constantly in newness of life.

His day of victory makes all our days complete!

Praying His Very Best Is Yours this Easter Season!


For in Him we live & move & have our being. ~ Acts 17:28 NIV


There will never be another act of love
so pure or triumph
so celebrated
as the humility of the cross
& the miracle of the empty tomb.

Bonnie Jensen

Have a wonderful time of rejoicing in the Resurrection!

I've heard of lemon and hot water in the morning followed by cold. I might give that a try too, I certainly don't have a problem drinking water with lemon. What you're doing seems to be working for you so I certainly wouldn't question it, especially since it was recommended by your doctor. You should try the SparkPeople "High-Protein, Low Sugar Blueberry Muffins" recipe, they're pretty good. When I made them I used regular milk and the brand of protein powder I already had and they were great. You'll have to copy/paste it but here's the link:

Thanks for stopping by my page to read my blog and for your comments. I actually was thinking of you when I asked about the protein powder, I bought mine after talking to you about yours. I didn't use mine much so have quite a bit left over. I didn't like the amount of calories it turned out to be when I mixed it with milk and I couldn't find anything else I liked very much as a substitute. I did find a pretty good blueberry muffin recipe on SparkPeople that used it though, I guess that's out now too. Today is day 1 of change (again). I've had a lot of "day 1's" but hopefully this will be the start of a more successful journey.
