Hi, I am an 82 year old woman who has struggled with her weight her entire life. I live most of the year in Hawaiii, but spend the summer in Alaska and Idaho. I have been married for 62 years to a great guy...we.think we have a wonderful life. I play a lot of golf when I'm at home in Hawaii, and I garden, quilt a little, and read a lot! I have had both knees and both hips replaced, as well as fused discs in my back, but I am not letting any of that keep me from being active. I love to walk and hike, as welli. I have 3 sons, 6 grandchildren, and 3 great grand children.
To lose weight.
To be healthier, and to have more stamina. And to be able to go into a store, buy clothing, and be able to wear it without altering as I am short.
Counting calories (what a concept). Being more active. Have a positive attitude. Don't beat myself up if (when) I screw up.
Keep a cool head.
My name is Nan. I live in Hawaii except for 3 or 4 months in the summer when I live in Alaska/Idaho. I am 82.
I play a lot of golf (not well), garden in the summer, sew and quilt some.
I have been married 62 yrs and have 3 sons and 6 grandchildren, and three great grandsons.

Determination is a decision, which keeps you pressing on when motivation no shows."
