So you’d think that after the really bad things that happened to me in 2018, I would have immediately made serious changes. I sure didn’t want to see reoccurances of my illnesses! But, I’m human. In spite of my knowing I needed to do better, I returned to what I knew best. That’s what we do generally, rely on the comfortable and familiar.
So I made the move to being vegan, upped my exercise game and generally changed my lifestyle! Was it easy? No. Was it scary, yes. Hey I just turned 70 after all. I knew that I wouldn’t be walking into this new lifestyle with those closest to me. To date I’m the only vegan in my close family or friends group. It’s okay. I’m a big girl and I don’t need to fit in when it comes to food. I walk and exercise by myself, thats okay with me too. At the end of the day I’m happyn with myself.
I realize that everyone isn’t ready to make massive changes all at once. I believe that making small adjustments is the way to go. So here I am. I thought we could work on this together! I can share my changes with you and hopefully you’ll make your own. What do you think?

Hey there Again I am working my way through your posts and reading about your journey.. I’m 53 and had some life changing health experiences shall we say.. I feel a kindred spirit in you sounding like me in the sense you don’t need to fit in either when it comes to food I’m restricted but I’m basically wholefood plant based but as I have several auto immune reactions to particular foods. But I don’t miss out touch wood no deficiencies (thanks God) but exercise is limited for mobility is also limited. but I adapt by doing yoga type bodyweight moves.. Where there’s a will there’s a way huh.. Bye for now stay well Nelly from London UK.. 🇬🇧 🍀🙏✌️👋
We do the best we can given our individual circumstances! I do the best I can but at 70, some days are better than others! I am blessed to be mobile and though I’m not as fast as I used to be, I do my best every day!
