76 Years Old ~~ Still Going Strong!

My word for 2015: Adaptability
Theme for May: "Stay focused, track food, exercise!"

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 meant exchanging my size 6 to 8 and moving into a size 14! I went along with that for years, but finally decided it was time to get fit and trim ...

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 meant exchanging my size 6 to 8 and moving into a size 14! I went along with that for years, but finally decided it was time to get fit and trim again.

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, and even if I stay at this weight, I'm not unhappy. I didn't start out expecting perfection, and no one can, or should, try to get back to their high school weight. You're not a "cheerleader" anymore, darlin' -- that's life!

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!" Look for the silver lining in every cloud!

By the way, if you're looking for friends -- you're in the right place! EVERYONE on here is a friend as we most likely have the same attitude about healthy living!

Anatomy of a True Friend

Eyes:
Will always see you for the way you really are, your true self.

Ears:
Will always have them open to listen.

Mouth:
To always tell you the truth and give their opinions, tell you when you mess up or do something good.

Shoulders:
Will offer when you need one to cry on and will be your strength when you find it hard to carry yourself. Will always let you lean on them.

Heart:
To love you for who you are and not judge. Will always have a place there for you.

Hands:
To hold yours when you need a little guidance, to lend when you need help, and to help you up when you may fall.

Arms:
Will always make you feel comfortable in them and to offer hugs when you need one. Will try to warm when you are cold.

Feet:
To walk with you throughout your life and be the best friend they can be.

Hi Eve! Thank you for your comment on my blog yesterday about God's love. emoticon I love the Word of God... I cannot express enough how much it helps me every day. I am passionate about the love of our Savior - I can't help but want to share Him and His beautiful Word every chance I get! I also love people and really want to help others draw closer to Him as well! emoticon

Thanks my dear. Yes, I do do the sparkpoints for the team (I think). Ever since they changed everything around I am not sure what I'm doing any more so I've kinda gotten away from a lot of the things because I simply don't understand where, what or why they're doing it.

I have found myself on numerous occasions going back in time to make sure my tracker is correct .... just like this last time. Nice that they let you do that. :)
