We all have things we love to do... yours is exercise.
It is normal for you, and that is all that matters.

When I was in my forties I worked at a place that offered their employees free use of the gym 24/7. One of the best thing was that my job was in the heart of downtown. I was at the gym a lot. I mean a lot. If I went downtown I went to the gym after shopping. They gave us lockers, which I kept all my gym supplies. I would get up early in the morning ON WEEKENDS and go to the gym. On holidays I was at the gym. If I had a minute I would be at the gym. It was like I was addicted to exercise, I couldn't stop, nor did I wanted to stop.
Ok now I'm in my seventies, I have that same rush, that same desire. I just want to exercise. Do a five minute boost here, another five minute boost there. Mind you I already worked out for, anywhere from 45 to 60 minutes already.
I want to lose weight, yes, but that's not why I want to exercise so much. I want to exercise because I enjoy it, a lot.
My question: am I the only one who ever felt this way, especially over 50 year of age? Is this normal?

Tip to reduce weight: First turn your head to the right and then turn it to the left. Repeat this exercise every time you are offered something to eat.
