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!

Personal Information:
Originally from MN, have lived in CA & NV --now AZ I got married Jan. 2011 and live in Sun City, AZ with my DH, a Scottie (Amber) and a Tabby cat named Luci. Summers are in the mountains at a 5000-foot elevation. My hobbies include writing, painting with acrylic and I love interior decorating, I dabble at making quilts.

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

It's a beautiful day here today - temperatures are in the 70's the sun is shinning and there is a coolness in the air. It's Saturday. I'm gonna let it fill my heart.

Hi, Eve, thank you so much for stopping by the other day! :) We are hoping to be able to leave the state in our retirement, to go out west preferably the CA, AZ border. But that is a few years from now. My husband actually works at Kenworth and does the truck inspections as they come off the assembly line. And well, as for myself, I am wanting a desk job at the hospital or clinic. Billing and coding.

I hope you are doing well! Enjoy your weekend! Hopefully where you are, winter is leaving you alone. We have a snow storm coming our way! God bless...

Hi Eve, glad you're having a good time with your daughter! sounds wonderful but also funny to think of it being "cool" in Florida! The times I went to Florida (April and August), it was HOT! emoticon and humid! emoticon I've been doing mostly well... making progress in my healthy lifestyle using a combo of SparkPeople, Weight Watchers and tools from a new book, "100 Days of Weight Loss" by Linda Spangle. this week has been a little rough... it's been freezing here and snowing every other day, and my back has been bothering me ... the cold doesn't help. This morning, I learned that my aunt has been moved to hospice and so is not doing well. She's the last of my Mom's side of the family that we knew; her estate executor just sold her house and it feels like losing 2 members of the family, as so many of our family celebrations were in that house. I'm doing ok though...hanging in there. Still looking forward to 2015 being a much better year. Hope you enjoy the rest of your trip!
