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. 😊

I'll be 50 in January but have never been healthier. My mom has advanced Alzheimer's as did her mother, and I'm fighting with every bone and muscle in my body to stave that off (if that's even possible).

My grandfather referred to people his age as, ‘those old folks”. He remarried at the age of 98. I just turned 60, and I am beginning to notice some of my friends act much older, not many, but some. I feel kind of sorry for them. Age, in my family has always been looked upon as mental outlook, if you stop growing and learning things, yes, you will age rapidly in your mind.
and when someone says to me, “act your age” I turn right around and say, “I am, this is how, I, Catherine acts at age 60”. So go out there and toss around water balloons with the kids! Dress up for Halloween, go parasailing etc.! Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death (my mother’s favorite saying).

I just turned 48 last month. My biggest gripe is the grey hairs that keep popping up. Otherwise, it's been business as usual.
I credit that, though, to no smoking, no drugs, very moderate drinking, so-so eating (lol) and mentally impressing myself with the value of thinking young since I was a late teen.

approaching 55 in less than a month, I am just glad I finally kicked it in gear this year and am getting healthy and losing a ton of weight. My quality of life is a 180 change from last year. I didn't see myself living that much longer without a change!
