Concentrate on the positives, let the negatives go!

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 my husband at the time (now deceased) and I started our own business and started eating all our meals in restaurants. My slim, trim 125 zoomed up to 150 -- seemingly overnight.

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 my husband at the time (now deceased) and I started our own business and started eating all our meals in restaurants. My slim, trim 125 zoomed up to 150 -- seemingly overnight. I can truthfully say this happened right before my eyes without me seeing it. Yes, even as I bought larger clothing sizes it didn't seem to sink in -- 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 you forever! At the present time I'm hoping to reach goal in 2012. It is now Nov. 1 as I edit this text, and I'm 10 pounds away. I could make it if I pushed hard -- time will tell.

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 that, 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!

I've raised the bar on my goal, now want to get to 125 lbs. WooHoo!

My Program:
I monitor very closely what I eat, I am staying on a healthy food plan. I know that fats/sugars are bad for me so those get eaten in very small portions. I don't cut anything out of my diet completely, just limit the portion.

I exercise 3 to 4 times per week, walk every day and drink water always!

Our summers are in the mountains about 75 miles from Phoenix. My hobbies are writing, painting with acrylic and I love interior decorating.

Other Information:
OK, I'm a senior citizen and loving it. I never thought 75 could feel this good. I'm looking forward to the "rest of my life."

Eve, most doctors are part of the medical establishment that has been lying to us for 40 years. They have been wrong about diet and exercise that's why you wouldn't hear anything from your doctor. Besides, I think you're more interested in playing with house and interior decorating anyway. It takes time and energy to research and learn the truth. Most of the diet stuff, you can learn from the Paleo and Atkins crowd. For exercise it's lesser known that the amount of sedentary behavior is more important of a factor than exercise. Since you're retired, you're not tied to a desk job like many of us do. So just avoid sitting and it will help out a lot.

I think that just a shot being fired would be enough of a deterrent to a coyote just hanging around looking for a meal. If that doesn't scare him off I'm lost emoticon .
