Is Age 71 too late?

I'm one of those yo yo's. Except for the past 7 or 8 years my yo-yo has only gone up. I get discouraged at how many (hundreds?) of times I have started to lose weight...and how many (hundreds?) PLUS ONE time I have failed.

It is May 17, 2015. And so I begin. Again.

Still, I wonder if I should just accept the back and hip pains, accept the difficulty walking (much less go up and down stairs), accept being short of breath all the time. After all I am going to be 72 ...

SparkPoints: 17,946

Fitness Minutes: 7,593

My Goals:
To build a healthy eating and exercise lifestyle that:
1) Is do-able
2) Is realistic



My Program:
1. Drink my water.
2. Exercise every day.
3. Track my food intake.
4. Track my fitness

Personal Information:
The "black magic" number for me is 40. I have lost 40 lbs. several times in the last 10 years, and it seems that is the turn-around-and- go backwards point for some reason. I did this on Spark. Lost 40 lbs, then hit a huge family crisis, and gave up (again). So I will consider my REAL starting point at my 40-lb. mark...only then will I "believe"!

Other Information:
I have been crafting with nursing home residents, and sewing dolls for needy and ill children.

Recently I started crafting hand-made pretend food and drink for 15" - 20" dolls. My husband makes beds, I do bedding, lamps, etc.

Oh Susana, how lovely to know your mom is around. May the Lord bless her with a Long and healthy life and many many more great-grands and great-great-grands. It is such a fulfilling experience to see life come full circle and your grandchildren becoming grandparents themselves.

Incidentally my DH too is 92, in fact he turns 93 i=on August 12th. He is pretty agile, moves comfortably but has been diagnosed with early stages of dementia, in November and there have been changes, where he sleeps a lot, gets confused often and on bad days needs help on everything. But then growing old is not for sissies right dear girl.

Give your mom a hug from me

Hugs, prayers and blessings
Mani

My dearest Susana,

Thank you for your visiting and reading my blog. And the wonderful little story of yours that you shared. I saw your mom's picture and she could be like my sister across the pond… with all the grands , great grands and great-great-grands. Is she still alive.
