Have you ever just sat down and thought about your age? I remember when I was a teenager and it seemed like the year 2000 was eons away. Then came 2000 and I made it, and I was close to 40. Well, now I'm closer to 50 and just not believing that I've made it this far! Thing is, I'd like to make it to closer to 60, so here I am.

I feel like I am fairly healthy, but my muscles have turned to flab. For most of my life, I've been in shape, because obesity is something that all of the women in my family have in common. So, I haven't been obsessed about weight loss, but let's just say that I've been conscious of it. Even now, I'm still in pretty good shape, but I'd really like to lose the last 10-15 lbs and firm up. I have a closet of clothes that I want to be able to wear again.

So, here's to greeting 50 with open arms and a healthy mind AND body!

    You can do it! I refuse to let my middle age begun before I am 80 years young. Any way age is only a mind thing. Get some dumbbells and work the flab!
