76 Years Old ~~ Still Going Strong!

My word for 2015: Adaptability
Theme for March: "May the Luck o'the Irish be with you!"

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 ...
My word for 2015: Adaptability
Theme for March: "May the Luck o'the Irish be with you!"

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. 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 at this weight, I'm not unhappy.

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 Roomba has a lot of strength, but it doesn't suck up items like a vacuum. It's a disk that hovers over the floor or carpet. There's only a little bit of clearance so it will push items ahead of it. A good thing, so it didn't eat my SPAT. If it hits something heavier like my shoes or a table leg, it goes around it.
We have mostly hardwood floors with just a few area rugs. The edges are bound & Dustin climbs up onto them & does a fine job. I don't know what it would do with a throw rug that didn't have firm, flat edges. Maybe push it up and try to go under it?

Thanks for the goodie emoticon emoticon
I thought of you the other day when the news showed a story about llamas loose in Sun City, pretty funny story.
Still waiting for spring here, we had a pretty bad winter health-wise, sick since Christmas and we spent both last Sunday and yesterday at Urgent Care dealing with new things. I went in last week and got a cortisone shot and 5 prescriptions for shingles and yesterday Rod got poked in his right eye with a branch when he was clearing brush out front. I told them at Urgent Care that now we were out of family members so hopefully we won't be back next week. The anti-viral's worked pretty well and I'm healing fine, no pain just itching and the rash is almost gone already. I'm going a bit stir crazy having to stay in out of the sun though.
