    I am thrilled to see guys of all ages taking their health and fitness so seriously. I turn the big 50 this June and really pushing myself to get into better shape.

    When I look at the guys here on Real Jock, especially those who are in my age group I am so impressed and inspired.

    Thanks to all of you for helping me to stay motivated.

    Cheers,
    Scott

    Nice! When joined a couple years ago I had been agonizing about my past choices and future prospects, and similarly found a lot to be hopeful about here. I still have a lot of work to do, but RJ has helped provide advice, motivation, and examples (both negative and positive) to fuel a *lot* of progress; I was about 240 pounds of pure fat when I started lurking, but I'm doing much better now.

    Glad to see you here, and I hope it goes well for you. With RJ, as with so much of life, it's all about the journey; just be careful not to let the bad vibes get in the way of the good ones.

    Since it's a bit early to congratulate you on your next big day, I'll offer a belated happy new years instead. ;)

    You certainly weren't 240 lbs of pure fat when you rode that 900' mountain behind the apt. icon_lol.gif

    I started exercising seriously 20 years ago in my mid 50's and have never looked back. The benefits have been huge.

    Congrats for taking the time and initiative to get back into better shape.. definitely awesome! You will find you a member of limited group of men. Some don't make health and fitness a priority or have other priorities or simply have given up, thinking the days of being really healthy and looking fantastic are behind them. Very sad. I'm looking forward to achieving some great new goals.

    Glad you are in our group... congrats!

    I wish I had someone to help me to get in shape. All my fat is in my stomach so I need help to get it off.

    I am in the best shape I've been in nearly 30 years. I am 58, play tennis regularly 2-3x/week, strength train 2x/week, play racquetball once/week, and stretch nearly every day. I love playing racket sports. I still have lots of extra weight (60lbs), have recently started counting carbs to see if that will help. My body feels good; my motivation for losing the extra is to improve my performance in racket sports. Yet any deviation in food consumption will result in 3-5lbs weight gain overnight. I'm talking 300-500 calories over weight loss calorie target. Persistence is the name of the game for me.

    I have exercised and watched my diet carefully since high school. For me it is not difficult, because it is my lifestyle, so I really don't have to think about it. I also am fortunate because I like to work out, so I don't need someone to motivate me. I also don't eat sweets or junk food, because I just don't like it, so that helps.

    It only gets better with age if you keep fit. I box. A lot. It is part of me. It feels SO GOOD to be in good shape. And KNOWING I look good is AWESOME.

    I really believe in taking very good care of myself. We each are issued just one body, and it is essential that we take good care of it. I started out as a pale, thin kid. The only sport I was any good at was swimming. I made the water polo teams in high school & college. The coaches put us through a Navy Seal training, & I soon built my body into something I was - and am - very happy with. I've stayed with doing my weights & swimming since my undergrad years. I feel great each & every time I come out of the gym, or the pool, with a sort of burn or high that is awesome.

    Am 48 and will be 50 in two years. IT is true. The older men on this site are so inspiring!
