5/22/17 – Day 9
9. How old are you and do you think your thoughts about weight loss, fitness, and wellness have changed over time?

I’m 71 years old now and I never really thought about weight before I was age 53/54. Now it is a struggle to lose weight. Of course age changes our daily lives and perspective! After 50 years of living with a loving husband, you find yourself suddenly alone. Your life is different. At 71, I really don’t need to be climbing on ladders to change light bulbs or replace batteries in smoke detectors. Going out to eat alone is not enjoyable. Cooking for one is harder. Now it is more about wellness. Staying healthy so that I can stay in my own home for as long as I can and not be a burden on anyone else.

    I have never thought of you as 71 as you look and act much younger. I love your goal and I share it. You expressed it perfectly.
