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."

Thanks for the goodie, you are such a postive person, an inspiration! I'm 61 Oct 3rd Libra, and don't know where all this weight came from! It's affecting my health by irritating an arthritic lower back. I do Yoga almost every day but I want to get in the habit of walking more and eating less. Drinking water is a challenge too.

Did you get lots of snow at your place in Yarnell?
