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!

Aloha . We are off to Big Island of Hawaii for a long stay. I will be posting a lot . We are about nine miles south of Kona town in a very quiet complex. I've traveled a lot but really find this place suits me perfectly. I love the lava fields.

Eve, no sense in being or looking old before your time - things were different 30 years ago! My mom is your age (76) and she colors her hair a similar color to mine (Strawberry blond, although mine is more copper at the moment but it will fade again)
Would love to see a picture of the new you!
