I'm 67, retired, and overall pretty healthy except I have arthritis & it seems to slowly get worse. Since about the age of 40, I have always gained weight quickly. I have been able to lose it quickly, but have to really cut a lot of calories & exercise a lot. Once when I was 45 I lost 100 lbs in 3 mos. It was the first time I tried Atkins Diet. When I lose weight & get back to normal for my age & height, I try to eat a normal healthy diet, never overdue it. But I always gain weight on "normal" diets.
I like reading, history, gardening, building things, working with wood. I used to like going out on weekends, dancing, shooting pool, & having a few drinks. I've cut out the drinking now for over 20 yrs.
My wife still works, she & I like taking short trips, riding back roads we've never travelled before. We spend a lot of time with our kids & grandkids. Go to church most Sunday's. That's about it. Will add more if I think of anything else.

Egg Fast
I've done the Egg Fast many times. It worked for me every time. Don't worry about the mayo, it's got good fat & very low carbs. Keep up the good work.

Constipation issues
I absolutely agree, and the great thing is these items taste good. Everyone should try cutting back on carbs.

krystynecar, I agree, it doesn't take a lot to survive. Our ancestor's taught us how to eat to stay healthy, but many of us never drink water or eat natural foods. Keep up the healthy, natural way to eat, it's kept me up a long time.
