Any other 60 somethings on here???

Just kinda looking to connect with others in my age range. I will be 65 in April and cant get used to it..... when did I get old...wow.

Wondering how you are doing and if this way of life is helping you.....

I am feeling fat... old... and very tired. Its a scary feeling. Yes... I guess I have to admit to feeling alittle sorry for myself this evening.

I'll be 65 in October and I agree where DID the time go? I feel nowhere near that old, but looking in the mirror tells a different tale!

I did my low carbing since 2004, still stick to a lowER carb WOE, not strict about it though, but am maintaining my weight at about 138, which is below my original goal.

You CAN do it but man you gotta wanna, more than you want that whatever it is that is calling to you. I've gotten to the point where stuff I used to love, like maple bars, just makes me feel sick to my stomach to look at it now. I did strict LC for a good 11 years, til my Mom got sick and needed more of my attention, passed in 2014; then my Dad and stepMom needed more help, he passed in 2016. StepMom is in a care facility for memory loss patients. DH and I finally got to move last year, and I love our new place, so it's easier for me to stick to what keeps me at my goal weight.

65. Wow. Amazing!

Yes, I'm 66 and have been low carbing since menopause not because of weight, but because I started having blood sugar issues. My body is in pretty good shape because of 35 years of consistent exercise, both cardio (which was called aerobic when I started) and weight lifting. As long as I can still run up a flight of stairs and do 20 men's pushups, I know I'm doing okay. I easily weight15-20 lbs less than I did before menopause due to the low carbing; in fact, I'm teetering on being underweight. BTW, two quotes from my twin sister: "Aging is not for the faint of heart" and "It now takes me twice as long to look half as good" :-(.

My version of #1 is: old age is not for sissies.

I just turned 60 this month and somehow it didn't bother me as much as I thought it would. As they say, "Age is just a number." So is weight, and mine was outta control!
I had done so well, losing 50 pounds low carbing and then JUDDD. I gained it all back plus 10 pounds. Talk about feeling sorry for yourself!
I am now back on track (something just clicked when I tried on some scrubs for work) and I've lost 21 pounds since Feb 13.
I'm post menopause and losing weight is getting harder, but I too, have blood sugar issues and need to get my weight down so I can see my grandchildren grow up - and keep up with them!
I'm looking forward to 65 so I can retire!

Love this!
Hi, Im Karen
63 years now, 64 in April
Feel like Im slowing some, noticed I do tire more easily

I have a twin sister too, she is in Washington and Im in Kansas
we text all the time

I used to jog, my body doesn't handle the pounding so well any more
now I fast walk and will start lifting weights next week

Have been doing LC for some time, but not faithful
Its the settling in my waist and legs that pushes me to stay with my eating and exercise

Hi Karen! Are you and your twin identical? My sister and I are fraternal and we are opposites in every way possible. We don't even look like sisters! I'm into a healthier lifestyle and she's into a bottle of wine with pizza and French fries for dessert. I don't do high impact anymore either, but exercise has always been a part of my life and while I don't enjoy it, I do it as the benefits are noticeable. Not as much as I would hope, but they are there.

Hi Ronnie!
My sister and I are identical. We are 8 minutes apart, she is first born
We have so many traits that are the same! Our voices sound very much alike, we both like to exercise.
Personally I love to sweat when I exercise, to me it shows Im making a difference in my health. Sweating out all the impurities
We are very different in many ways too.
I started eating low carb several years ago, when I slowed on my jogging because of my back. My sister still jogs, and she also loves alcohol and desserts
My sister Sheri and I are very much connected in emotions and physical issues
We both suffer from bunions, hip and lower back issues, allergies to vinegar items, we both sense when the other has problems or needs a call for prayer
I am so grateful for her
God knew I would need her

We are both very competitive with each other

She's your best friend. Too bad you live so far apart.
