Losing to live

She is religious about her routine. If it is 10 a.m. ET during the week, Keeler is in the gym.

“I am on a routine and I need to stick to it,” Keeler said. “I really want to get my weight down. I am never going to be 160 or 170 but I can lose more. The thin people at the gym don’t bother me. They are thin, I am heavy. It’s no big deal.

“I am here to do what I need to do to lose weight. I just need to keep plugging along.”

She has learned more about proper diet, trying to “buy right” and eat sugar free where possible.

“I am 65 years old and I need to take care of myself,” Keeler said. “It is hard but I never thought I would lose 60 pounds. It’s a struggle. You just need to set your mind to it.

“I’m shocked by myself. When I try on my thin clothes I know this works. I just needed to learn that (the way I ate and lived) was not a good thing for me at this time.”
