You know, I don't feel old. I don't feel old at all. I run and jump and dance and play with the grandkids. I can go all day; yesterday at Disney I racked up over 20 miles. No problem!
I remember being so tired in my 40's, with a challenging job and demanding personal life. I had lots of problems with my jaw. Tried lots of different treatments including braces. My jaw isn't 100% healed, but it rarely bothers me now. In my 50's I was even more tired. I wore orthopedic shoes and my feet hurt a lot. I was carrying 50-85 extra pounds. Then I finally lost weight for good, and at age 61 I found out how comfortable running shoes are. I haven't stop running since!
I didn't expect to feel this good at age 67.75. (If the grandkids can count partial years, I can, too!) No I don't feel old at all. Hardly ever. Maybe on a day after a restless night, but those are rare. My weight loss and much healthier lifestyle has given me energy and joy. I am blessed and I know it. Wish I'd found my healthy way years and years ago, but definitely better late than never!
