It sure is! What's weird is that I just had this feeling I should check out the Getting Fit Over 50 forum. I don't think I ever had before! Then I thought I'd look for my birth year and first thing I saw was your post - wowzers!

Pretty neat that you've found people with your name on FB! But, you're the first person I've ever known who was born on not just the day, but the same year, as me ;) It's great to meet you, too - I feel like I've just met a long-lost family member! The woman who used to cut my hair shared our birthday, though she was one year older. I hear Bo Derek was a Nov. 20th baby, though a little younger than us :)

OMG! I've never met anyone born on my birthday! WhoooHoooo... I can't believe it! I'm in total shock! How cool is that. I also have several people with my name on FB. How cool is that? I went through most of my life and met Nora's, Norma's, Lola's etc.. but none had my name. Then I was on a horse website and found another Nola.. But to now find someone who was actually born on my BD! That is just amazing. Sooooo nice to meet you!!!

Whooooeee!

Have you ever noticed how, every great now and then, something very eeeeeerie and Twilight Zone-ish seems to happen? Something told me to look for SparkPeople born in 1951, as I was, and I see this post by NOLAHORSERIDER.

I can't believe it: I, too, was born on November 20, 1951! Nice to meet you, NOLA :)

I was born on November 20, 1951. I currently live in North Central Florida. I have been retired since January. During my working years from about 45 on, I gained in the neighborhood of 50 pounds. I tried WW several times over the years, but couldn't stick with it, although I am a lifetime member! :) I was recently told that I need to eat a Gluten Free Diet. Just found this site Friday evening. Started GF diet on Monday. What a great site with so much support! I am amazed. It's wonderful to know there are so many here that are working on some of the similar goals that I am. I look forward to chatting with all my new friends...

Born Oct. 10, 1951. And yes, we DO get better with age! At least we get a little wiser, and a little more humble, and (for me, anyway) learn that it's never too late to make changes to enhance the REST of the journey. Glad to find this community of fellow "Woodstock generation" people! I didn't actually get to Woodstock, by the way...I was 17 and wanted to go with a bunch of people, but being a "good girl" when I was told absolutely not, I obeyed and stayed home. Regret missing it to this day!

September 1951 here. Born in Minneapolis, MN. Lived in this state all of my life. I remember in the 50's the street cars fazed out and now rail lines which are similar are being put back into the Twin cities. it always amazes me that despite modern technology the old things come back. Turn tables and vinyl records are coming back with the younger generation as well. Anyway, I am looking at losing 50 lbs - my joints are feeling the effects of years of burden! I got my blood pressure to normal last year by cutting out dairy (especially ice cream) substituting frozen fruit bars, olive oil and cutting out all white foods.

If you think the fat looks bad on the outside imagine what it looks like and is doing to your insides!

Hello, I'm new to the site. Born in 1951 in Sacramento, I've lived mainly in the Midwest, but have happily settled in Northeast Florida and hope to retire here. I have herniated discs in my back and neck, and some heart issues, which have really cramped my style. I have 39 pounds to lose (from 164 to 125) and I'm hoping the weight loss will help my other health issues. Funny bone is still healthy, though. Nice to meet you.

It certainly has its moments. Have you always lived in western PA, or did you move about at all? I get back up that way once or twice a year, but not west of Harrisburg.

I've moved around the country quite a bit, but now live in the Appalachian mountains of southwest VA. I'm a big fan of small-town life. But I still like to visit bigger cities too for a change of pace from time to time. It's fun to take advantage of all the shopping, restaurants, and cultural opportunities that they have to offer. Funny, when I lived in cities, I always took my vacations in the country, mostly in the mountains. Now that I live in the mountains, I tend to gravitate towards cities to get away. I guess a change of pace is good for whatever ails you.

I was born in June and know what you mean about getting better with age. I lost a lot of loved ones to cancer and let myself go for a long time, but I am starting back on the path to finding the real, but older me. I now live in FL with my wife of less than four years and we love the warm weather. Ohio was too cold in the winter for my many aching joints. How about you?
