I hope I am allowed to ask.

I am 56.

I wish I had found my way to better eating sooner. But, I won't look back - just forward. :D I hope to have many healthy years to spend with my grandson!

But I am grateful I didn't do it any later.

Thanks, Lyn. I 'feel' very young at heart and I know I think young. However - this body feels very old many days. :dizzy:

Sheilia said - Not by much!

You're right - what year were you born?

Shelia said -I'm 55 and got my first "senior" discount this year. I felt more like a senior when I weighed 103 pounds more!
Me too - I've been enjoying my 'senior status' a year now...I am now 'legal' to eat off the senior menu at Bob Evans. It's my mom's favorite place to go.

Beverly, at the bottom right hand corner of the post you want to quote, just click on the box that says 'Quote' (right next to the 'edit' button, which is my personal favorite feature!). That will give you a new post window with the quote code already built in.

If you want to quote more than one person as you did in this post, you click on the little box *next* to the 'Quote' box, the one that looks like a set of quotation marks. Click on that box in each of the posts you want to quote, then click 'post reply' at the bottom of the thread. That should give you a new post with all the posts you want to reply to already quoted.

I'm 36, which sounds strange to me. I either feel older or younger, but I never quite feel Thirty-Six. As with everyone I wish I'd lost the weight earlier too. Well, that's not quite true. I wish I'd lost and kept it off. I feel like I've been on and off diets since I was 10. Oh wait... I have. :p

Beverlyjoy,

Move over on that senior stool and let me join you. 56 as well. Dieting since my early teens. Happy (but also a little sad) that I have finally seem to have gotten it. (The sad part is that I think being overweight changed my life in not so wonderful ways.)

Beverlyjoy
08-26-2008, 06:48 AM
I'll share the senior stool with you Pandora! Yippee....I am not the oldest. I am glad to share the honors with you. :D

I think I've finally gotten it right this time too. It's the longest stretch of time in my long 'career' of eating disorderly that I've had sanity with food. Of course, I take nothing for granted - It's too easy to slip back into crazy eating. Nevertheless - I am grateful.

Tai
08-26-2008, 06:55 AM
Beverlyjoy, I understand how you feel about having sanity with food. This is also the first time for me in 20 years that I have experienced it. It feels great, doesn't it? I too take nothing for granted and am grateful for any progress I make.

And by the way, you have a lovely, youthful spirit! Age really is just a number.

Pandora123a
08-26-2008, 07:02 AM
The funny thing is that I worry that when I lose the weight my filled out wrinkles will show and I will look OLDER. Right now folks tend to guess I am much younger than I am.

Oh well, that should be the worst problem I have...healthy, skinny, and wrinkled.

I looked on my profile and realized I have been a member of this site for 3 years, 5 months, and 22 days. And I actually weigh MORE than when I first tried to lose weight the healthy way (via Weight Watchers). I always sabotage myself in some way. But I come on here and there is always someone to give me hope that I will succeed. :hug: Hopefully another birthday won't pass with me in my current state.

I was 18 when I joined this site and even then I wished that I had started earlier! :lol:

I havent figured that part out since we are always struggling to find a babysitter!

I am enjoying the 30's so much more than my teens and 20's. People always thought I was older then I was. I remember someone asking me if I was my older sisterís mother! She was graduating high school so I might have been 14! I do not know how much I weighed at that time because I never got on the scale but probably at least 250 and I dressed poorly. We lived in a rural area and I did not know that they sold cool clothing for people my size.
