At 69 I am healthy, strong, energetic and in-shape. Next year at the age of 70 I plan to compete again in natural bodybuilding. Being in good shape both physically and mentally is certainly worth the effort. It opens doors that would otherwise be shut. It also creates possibilities and opportunities and provides a framework for living. Many older people in particular find themselves no longer feeling useful, relevant or worthwhile and many focus on what they once were instead of focusing on becoming more of who they are. Age doesn’t have to determine anything. It can be only a number and you can be more excited about yourself than you ever dreamed possible at any age, 30,40,50 60,,70+.

    Hi Lorraine,
    Bravo to you for your courage, determination, and out-of -the-box attitude.

    I am going to be 72 in August and parallel your thinking. I’ve been an athlete and dancer all my life. I simply was born to move and am still doing that now. I enjoy hiking with my dogs. I just bought a stand up paddle board and cannot wait til it arrives.

    Have a great day! Barbejoy

    Since testosterone decreases with age, do you have to take testosterone now to build muscle.I turned seventy five recently and question whether I can actually build muscle enough to show definition.

  5. Hi Janice Lorraine,

    I was so happy to read your story. Just started going to the gym with my cane and limp. Everyone is so nice there. You have given me the courage to keep going and not to give up. Am building strength ever so slowly and with my messed up leg it is very slow. Look forward to keeping up with you and your adventures. And will let you know how I am progressing! Best to you, Kathy

      Hi Kathy. I’ve been a away. I’m so happy to hear you are going to the gym. Take it slowly as you are and you’ll get stronger and stronger, Trying to hurry your results causes people to give up and even do damage. Every best wish with your return to strength. We don’t have to get weak and miss out on living life to the full. Working out also makes one feel great because we are then not subjected to the will of the ageing process. On the contrary we are having a significant say in it. All the best to you
