Fit after 60

2007: Over the years, the weight has slowly crept up. I just want to return to the weight I was 20 years ago when I met my husband (124 pounds) instead of the 136 that I am today. I hate the flab on my body. I try to walk 35 minutes most days at lunch and I do some light weights off and on, but the weight just stays about the same. Help!! My discipline has disappeared.

BEAUTIFUL WOMAN AWARD"

You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award!!

Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out!

Again, Congratulations Beautiful! emoticon

Hi Ellen, I'm sorry you have not been able to talk to your Mother. You have the right idea about calling her at the NH. I would ask the nursing staff when it would be the quietest, most convenient time to call her. I call Melvin every Sat/Sun/Tues/ Thurs. at 4:00. He and the staff expect my call, so it works for me. I set an alarm on my phone to remind me when it's 4:00.
There are special cell phones for children and the elderly that are very easy to operate and don't have any "bells and whistles"(confusing extras). One is the Jitterbug. But maybe your cell phone provider can suggest a real "easy to operate" one.

Hi Ellen, I'm sorry you haven't been able to "play in the dirt" this week. In just a few days, you'll be as good as new and more beautiful than ever! AND you'll be back working in your flower garden again!
