76 Years Old ~~ Still Going Strong!

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 -- 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. By the time I turned 69 I decided it was time to ...
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 -- 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. 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, not unhappy with my weight.

I am staying positive and 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!

By the way, if you're looking for friends -- you're in the right place! EVERYONE on here is a friend!

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!

And now in May 2014 we adopted another white/tabby cat named Holly. Summers are in the mountains about 75 miles from Phoenix. My hobbies are writing, acrylic painting and I love interior decorating, am dabbling at making quilts.

Other Information:
I'm a senior citizen and loving it. I never thought 76 could feel this good. I'm looking forward to the "rest of my life."

Hi, my dogs actually treed that bobcat you saw...The little one, Sophie is not afraid of anything! Thanks for coming to my page! The bobcat has been around our home for about 12 years,(not sure if same one, but she looks like it) has a litter every year and sleeps by my front door in summer. I can get about 2-3 feet from her when she doesnt have kittens with her. She watches me tend my garden in summer and likes to sleep under squash plants...lol

Eve, I am so excitd for you to see your D again after a year. My DD moved to Europe after graduating from college and lived and worked in Englad for 3 years and then decide to move to the mainland. My family lives in Holland, so that was the obvious choice. She learned the language and is now teaching english at the university. Her dream job!
I miss her lots but we Facetime at least 3 times a week :)
Have a great holiday season!
