76 Years Old ~~ Still Going Strong!

My word for 2015: Adaptability

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. As I reached my ...
My word for 2015: Adaptability

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. As I reached my 60's my activity level went down, but I never changed my eating habits to balance 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 here, I'm not unhappy with my weight.

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!

My Goals:
I've raised the bar on my goal, now want to get to 130 lbs. WooHoo!

Short term: Get to 135 by end of January, so it looks like only 1.2 lbs. to lose and I'll be there with a healthy BMI.

My Program:
I monitor very closely what I eat, I am staying on a healthy food plan. I know that fats/ sugars are bad for me so those get eaten in very small portions. I don't cut anything out of my diet completely, just limit the portion.

I exercise 3 to 4 times per week, walk every day and drink water always!

Hi Eve,
Thank you so much for your kind words on my page. It is so hard when you lose someone who has been an influential part of your life since before you were even born. When my mom passed away in 1985, this wonderful woman stepped into Mom's shoes and became my step mother and a grandmother to my daughter. Right now I am so sad but I know the immediate sadness and horrible pain will eventually lessen.
She will always have a special place in my heart.

thanks for the foot 'joy' . It really makes a difference to me. She suggested smearing my dry heels with Vaseline , covering it up with a bit of Saran and pulling a sock over it all. Hmmm... Very sexy !😏
