Today I am officially full grown! I am feeling my oats; I am 66 years young. I swear I don't feel any different than I did at 22 years old. Earlier I thought I was slowing down, but keeping up with the challenges here on SP has given me so much energy that I'm no longer tired at the end of a day of chasing around after my 2 and 4 year-old grand kids. It's phenomenal. Please don't take that comment about the grand kids to mean that I'm retired. I'm just on Christmas break: I'm still teaching full time, and can't really see any good reason to retire soon--I'm looking for one :)
If you're trying to lose weight without exercising, please give it a try ASAP. Just strap on some tennis shoes and start walking. My weight will not stay down without it; my blood pressure will not stay down without it, and my cholesterol will not stay down without it. My good cholesterol is a whopping 79 (we are encouraged to keep it above 40), and my overall is only 130. (We're encouraged to keep that no. below 200.)
Now it's true that I am usually just a happy person, but I have to tell you, I just feel GOOD! Help me toast to 66 more good years!
Cheers! íSalud! A ta santÚ! Salute!
