Getting old: hmm-mm. Maybe I could use a brow lift, some lipo, and a bit of Botox here and there.
Aging: Screw that. Rather spend the money on Christmas in Paris...or a skiing in the Alps...I've always wanted to see Scotland...New Zealand...perhaps a safari???

Here is my take. I will hit "Medicare" age next year. For years, I have felt much older than I actually have been and that has been in large part due to very diminished mobility due to deteriorating joints most notably my hips along with taking less than optimum care of myself. I didn't help myself at all by also living in denial and resistance to seeking specialized care for what ailed me. All that ended when I finally reached my "enough's enough" point late last year and underwent two hip replacements to start this year. Once I got thru rehab and PT, I decided I wasn't stopping. I enrolled in a "next steps" program to continue and enhance my exercise. Before starting, I was "pre-assessed" to determine the current state of my body (this was mid August). One of the things disovered was that my "body age" was 71. That didn't sit well with me. I began that program with a focus such as I haven't had in long time. I didn't miss a single session for the entire eight weeks of program and took advantage of free access to fitness center which I continue to do until I get "post assessed" on the 16th. I will be very disappointed if I don't knock that body age down closer to my actual age. In the meantime, I haven't been feeling as old as I once did. Maybe there's something to "age is just a number"! Oh, and I AM joining the fitness center once I get assessed. 😊
