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!

So when I emailed the Happy Birthday to the oldest that came frist for two baby sisters I told her to tell C..... As you see they are way younger than I am. Have like twenty years on them....Mother had 8 babies. Five boys. Two older than I. One older gone because of blood given him in hospital during a surgery. It was a horrible dead HIV. Three other brothers gone. Oldest brother still here and of course the two babies girls. I think. Hoping D..will let me know.
