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 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!

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."

Did my typing stutter again? LOL!!! I meant both the darling granddaughters. They are 5 and 10. I just love spending time with them and I won't drag them out to walk. I go a good ways & it's a mite chilly for them as well as traffic can be an issue here and there. That's the only way they might affect me on the walking. If they are here when it's time to walk or not walk......I guess I really should just go ahead and get dressed and get up the road. It's nice and sunny today!
You take care, my friend!! Stay safe and Sparkly!! (((HUGS)))
