HI. I'm 72 and giving another try at getting healthier. I'm working on my emotional eating. Since we've retired I have to work on ways to keep moving. I'm feeling very hopeful on making progress with weight loss and improving my life.

My Goals:
To conquer my emotional eating and reach a healthier steady body weight. I want to declutter my home and life. I want to be more active.

My Program:
I workout at the YMCA with my husband Three days a week. I have a chair yoga and senior strength dvd to use on other days. I'm working with The Emotional Repair Manual by Julie M. Simon to get through that problem.


Personal Information:
I grew up in California but I have lived in Washington since high school. My husband is from Montana. We're both retired as of Feb. 2013 and are having problems getting used to it. I love living in western Washington, even love the rain.


Other Information:
I enjoy working on family history. Haven't painted any for a couple of years but I signed up for a watercolor class to get myself started again. We would love to travel a lot but the funds are low so we keep ourselves happy with daytrips and senior trips.

Hi Best, it's been awhile. Hope you're doing ok, I'm just losing and gaining it back during holidays. I'm starting this new diet by Jorge Cruise, I'd heard of it but come to find out it's an easier version of the "Dr. Atkins diet revelation" and I lost weight and kept my weight off but that's was like over 30 years ago so I'm going to try it. It's been on the New York best seller list for a long time. It's all about counting sugar calories. Take care now, at least I know where you are now emoticon

Ha there Best, I can definitely relate to your story. I'm 67 and can't believe I'm this age either time just seem to fly. I retired after over 30 years of nursing almost lost my mind until my daughter took me screaming and kicking and put me on Facebook which I love I have several teaching groups there and that's what I mainly do to keep from going nuts. I've always had problems with my weight and have been on every diet. I finally joined TOPS, so much cheaper than weight watchers and it's like a new family, most of the ladies are around my age and after the first month I'd lost 10lbs. Then Thanksgiving hit Best and as usual I over did it to the tune of 247, weighed this morning, kinda down but determined. Lets keep in touch emoticon

Saw that you're living in Western Washington and that you love the rain! I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and still tell people it was beautiful, but a little like living in a car wash!
