My ultimate goal is to outlive my husband who is 72 and has a resting heart rate of 60. He is 12 years older than I and we both lost our first mates in death. My husband believes that I will live longer than he will all other things being equal. He, however, is in excellent health. He developed the exercise habit when he was much younger and he is extremely consistent.

We've been married 6 years and have a wonderful life. Our relationship is everything I imagined a loving relationship could be. We spend a lot of time together and I want it to go on for as long as possible. This cannot happen if I am not healthy.

I have a predisposition to diabetes and high blood pressure. I feel as if these chronic illnesses are standing at the door waiting for the opportunity to enter my life. I want to live a long, healthy, and whole life. I've gotten fatter over the last 10 years and now weigh more than I ever have (including when I was pregnant). This time I am in it for my life, for life.

    HI and welcome to the 50+LC Women's team! We are glad to have you. Come on in; the water's fine!
    Seriously! We are a pretty mellow group -- old enough not to fuss much, but still with a great spirit of sharing and caring among the active members. Post and let us get to know you! I wanted to take the opportunity to tell you how thrilled I am to see that you are on a LC Diet.

    I've been trying these last few months to revive the team and I hope you'll join us and post regularly and tell us a little about yourself. It really is a good thing to have someone to talk to who knows the diet and the struggles we LCers face!
