75 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 we started our own business and started eating all our meals in restaurants. 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.

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 we started our own business and started eating all our meals in restaurants. 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 have reached 135. I may try for another 10 pounds off, we'll see how it goes.

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!

My Goals:
I've raised the bar on my goal, now want to get to 125 lbs. WooHoo!

Short term: Get to 132 by my birthday in Oct. 2014.

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!

Personal Information:
Originally from MN, have lived in CA & NV --now AZ I got married Jan. 2011 and live in Glendale, AZ with my DH, my Scottie, Amber, and we have a Tabby cat named Luci. And now in May 2014 I adopted another white/tabby cat named Holly. Summers are in the mountains about 75 miles from Phoenix. My hobbies are writing, painting with acrylic and I love interior decorating.

Other Information:
OK, I'm a senior citizen and loving it. I never thought 75 could feel this good. I'm looking forward to the "rest of my life."

Hey lady ..how's it going? Changed my name to a ME name..just got tired of the other one! It is so important for us to take time for ourselves indeed..but we do tend to put our issues on the back burner as we care for others.

You must first love yourself before you can truly love another..I believe that is how the message goes!

More later in a PM (personal message!)

With every day we learn and grow..
Lets get this done.. emoticon
We can do anything we really really want.. emoticon
Decided to learn about craigslist, the scammer, how to make my ads stand out and more all for free on youtube. August is going to be hot and depending on others to have to help do a garage sale, is not good maybe I can do this a little at a time and get rid of it all within the next year. and Craigslist is free I do like the sound of that.
Here's to the last half of the journey for me. Can't wait. Velvet emoticon
