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 husband at the time (now deceased) and I started our own business and started eating all our meals in restaurants. My slim, trim 125 zoomed up to 150 -- seemingly overnight. I can truthfully say this happened right before my eyes without me seeing it. Yes, even as I bought larger clothing sizes it didn't seem to sink in -- 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 you forever! At the present time I'm hoping to reach goal in 2012. It is now Nov. 1 as I edit this text, and I'm 10 pounds away. I could make it if I pushed hard -- time will tell.

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 that, 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!

well today was my day to jump off the wagon & onto the fast food train.I let me get way way too hungry. But got home & worked outside , think I worked most of it off shoveling dirt & moving items.
my sons showed up & helped with the dirt moving..no ..honestly they did it! My Border Collie , Tyler, gets bored & he digs...REALLY Digs...tunnels! So we were trying to not only find the dirt,,fill in the tunnel..but also blockade that area as his tunnel went right under the garden shed..can see me falling thru where the floor used to be!

Now once again am tired & ready for bed..thanks for the notes on my blog. tis fun going thru that book & paraphrasing to express my understanding of it. & in some small way help others as well.

Got to get over to your website & check on things..I have thought about starting a website about my lil farm..from the critters point of view. I think that would be fun,,an update from different critters on different days..yep gotta think on that one.

Have a great Sunday!! emoticon

The things we do for photography :)
I did tell Skater that I cut off the worst burnt bits.. still a little won't hurt. I guess we all have things we are concerned about.. I can get OCD about wheat and desserts and don;t get me started on people wanting to lose weight ans still eating fast "food"... ok, off my soapbox LOL
Have a great weekend!

Eve, thanks for commenting on my blog. The piece of chicken was about 6 oz and I left half for the next day :) (the plate just looked better in the picture with the whole piece on it LOL)
Summer in the Phoenix area is uncomfortable... hope your place gets finished soon and you can move to the cooler mountains.

Why does construction always seem to be an adventure? Have a great day emoticon
