Losing weight to live longer

I am a widow, aged 80, with health challenges. Joining to find a group of caring people with the same goal. I have had two mastectomies now and adjustments are challenging.
I now live in a senior retirement community and can no longer drive. Loss of independence makes social events to be a thing of the past.

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
Just got notified that I have been here for 60 days. Don't feel so isolated with such a number of people offering support, understanding, friendship, and companionship.
I have two granddaughters and hope to live long enough to see them both walk down the aisle.

My Program:
I feel that I am not doing enough to reach my goals. I get very depressed and have great difficulty with exercise due to my medical challenges but keep on trying within my limitations.

Personal Information:
I was born and raised in Chicago, IL. I live near Lake Michigan in my own condo. I have been here a year and have still not been able to walk to the lake. My name is Rhoda.

Other Information:
Just wanted to say that anyone can achieve what they want if they want it enough. I began working on my Masters degree at age 64 and graduated with a 3.57 average. The impossible just takes a little longer.

Hi -- I am new to the fellowship about about to celebrate 3 months ... thanks for the inspiration. It is hard to take life on life's terms, and for me it is the people who just don't get me. Knowing there are folks like you that do, helps. I will be 66 in July and 'want to be slim' by the time I am your age.

I saw your post about needing support...I'm new to recovery, but more than willing to provide support.
