ealainen --Never think you are to old to do anything you set your mind too. Attitude and Determination are half the battle. If you want to succeed then set a goal, reasonable goal and then work for that. Remember if you are trying to loose weight and you go on a weight loss program the first thing you are going to loose is muscle so you have to exercise more to keep that muscle and shed the fat. There is no magical pill that will give you that body you want and invision in your mind. Only dedication and hard work will get you to your goal. Get in touch with a person who really knows about nutrition and body building--not weight lifting. If you want the power lifting later that is OK but build the foundation first. To many people set unrealistic goals and get frustrated and quit because they don't accomplish immediately what they want. Set short range goals and long range goals and go at it and NEVER GIVE UP. Eating right is probably the first step you need to take. Learn about what is good and what is not good for you. You are most likely going to have to eat differently than you had been eating. Smaller meals, more often, good protein shakes, and consitency in your eating habits are a must. Your lifestyle will change and when you see what you are accomplishing your life will even change. It can only happen if you do it. Nobody can eat for you, work out for you, or be determined for you but YOU. Remember you're not 22 anymore and you have to work harder to get that 22 year old body. I can relate to all this because 8 months ago I was run down, my weight was dropping on me very fast (down to 137 lbs from 157), I felt my health was failing, and a lot of stress from a failed relationship and work had me on a downward spiral. I found someone who knew about the body building aspects and he put me on track. I gained back 14 lbs and at the same time built a well toned body that I feel good with and I get the comments and admiration from a lot of younger than 62 year olds comment on
. YOU ARE NEVER TO OLD!
