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.

2012 update: I have lost 8 pounds, but still focused on the 124 goal. I am now retired, so more time for ...

Hi Ellen, Thank you for the bouquet of flowers and your kind words about my sciatica. You know from your DH, how uncomfortable it is.
The doctor I saw yesterday is trying to juggle my meds to see if that will help.
I'm so lucky that walking doesn't hurt. It's the sitting and being in bed that hurts.

Also thank you for being my cheerleader on the activity page! It is encouraging!

You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award!!

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.
