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!

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

Short term: Get to 132 by Christmas 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 Sun City, AZ with my DH, a Scottie, Amber, and a Tabby cat named Luci. 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."

hey there, saw your question about a post .1% lost (meaning down in body fat)--- meaning not a complete percentage point. I know not very much of a decrease but my Aria scales measure body fat by electrical impedance ---not necessarily always an accurate measurement but it's something that shows up on my scale to tell me I am improving by more than just losing pounds but also improving my body fat percentage---even though I know it is dependent on measuring fat by comparing lean body weight by water held in muscle......? tmi? anyway--I like to know I am not losing all muscle as I drop emoticon

BTW I am 5'9" unless I've shrunk as I have aged and I don't think I have EVER been described as tiny even at 136 my lowest ever adult weight

Thanks, Eve for stopping by with such a sweet, uplifting message!! I'm exercising for sure! I walked a bit over 3 miles today and then mulched (mowed) the front lawn one last time for the year. It looks so nice and neat now and with the lights DH hung on the house and the tree done, we are looking quite festive!
Sounds like you are getting plenty of exercise with all that painting!! So, when you get a house done, you must get bored and go buy another one to paint! LOL! Mine could use a freshening! Come on over!! hehe
Hope you tried to rest a bit today and if your weather is suitable, walked with Amber a bit!
I be a might tired now and expecting my DD and her family over for supper. DH made a meat loaf. Should be yummy!
Take care, Eve!! Stay safe!! (((HUGS)))
