76 Years Old ~~ Still Going Strong!

My word for 2015: Adaptability
Theme for March: "May the Luck o'the Irish be with you!"

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 happened seemingly overnight. I can truthfully say this happened right before my eyes without me seeing it. In fact, as the years went by I ...
My word for 2015: Adaptability
Theme for March: "May the Luck o'the Irish be with you!"

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 happened seemingly overnight. I can truthfully say this happened 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. Little by little 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 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!"

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

Thank you for your comment on my page. I bought my mom (now 78) a membership to the YWCA a few years ago and it helped her so much emotionally as well as physically. She continued to go until my dad's recent heart attack. Exercise can lift your mood if you can motivate yourself to do it.
