76 Years Old ~~ Still Going Strong!

My name is Eve. The older you get the harder to lose! I have spent my entire life as a slim, healthy woman. Then at the age of 50 we started our own business and started eating all our meals in restaurants. My slim, trim 124 zoomed up to 150 -- seemingly overnight. I can truthfully say this happened right before my eyes without me seeing it. In fact, as the years went by I became used to the new weight and ignored it.

My name is Eve. The older you get the harder to lose! I have spent my entire life as a slim, healthy woman. Then at the age of 50 we started our own business and started eating all our meals in restaurants. My slim, trim 124 zoomed up to 150 -- seemingly overnight. I can truthfully say this happened right before my eyes without me seeing it. In fact, as the years went by I became used to the new weight and ignored it. As I reached my 60's my activity level went down, but I never changed my eating habits to balance it. By the time I turned 69 I decided it was time to take action and in Dec. '07 I joined SP. It's been a learning experience, but I wanted to go slow and steady, and did just that.

For me, it's not a DIET, it's a new Healthy Lifestyle, a change in your habits and activity level and is something that will be with me forever! At the present time I have reached 135. I may try for another 10 pounds off, we'll see how it goes.

I am staying positive and looking for the best in life, it's the only way to stay young and healthy. It's wonderful that people of any age can attain it ~~like that elusive fountain of youth, and that's my goal in life!

By the way, if you're looking for friends -- you're in the right place! EVERYONE on here is a friend!

Thanks for the info on Instaflex. I looked it up on Amazon (to check the price there and also to read the reviews). As far as I can tell it has basically the same ingredients as another product I just ordered from Amazon at half the price of what you're paying for the Instaflex ($28.95 for a 2 month supply). Also, Instaflex got 3 1/2 star reviews, the other product got close to 5. Here's a link (you'll have to copy and paste since comments can't include links)

I've been taking Schiff Glucosomine with MSM for years now and it seems to help. The new product has other things in it too that I thought might be even more effective so I plan to switch to it as soon as my Schiff is gone. I bought it now because my husband wants to start taking it and the Schiff brand is too big for him to swallow.

Thanks for the goodie and the note. I did read more than one of your blogs, can't remember how many I commented on though. I hope you're right that winter will be more relaxed because summer here was CRAZY! We have 7 fruit trees and 4 raised garden beds and it was a full time job to just keep everything watered, weeded, picked and processed! The arthritis in my hands has gotten a lot worse since the beginning of summer so I'm wondering if it will continue or get better with less gardening activities.
I'm glad your house is coming along so well, you've sure had to wait a long time so I'm sure you're enjoying it.
