Your stories give me great incentive to walk and stay in shape as best I can so I make it.
Oh to be 62 again ! Pat

Of course better to be back at 62. My goal is to be in the same relative health at 66 as I am now at 62, I lost 25 pounds and still have 20 to go but itís been difficult, those of you that are older then I and traveling in your rigs are an inspiration and I enjoy learning from you, even if your just a step ahead. Iím blessed to get this far and hope to go further and blessed to have spent 20 years on the ocean as a young fishermen, my dad stood on his feet all day as a butcher, I have had it better

Good for you! eating good food , keeping active body and mind . I like to exercise in a pool really helps and low impact on your body too. One piece of advice ,try to be careful where you place your feet coming and going especially ,on ladders , go slow . In my case climbing stories high , got a little too confident on small ladders . Being on boats ,being a fisherman you understand .And just keep going even if it's sometimes painful . Don't ever give up . You got this ! Pat

Even if sometimes it’s painful, you couldn’t be more right. This is what stopped me for years and it was a big mistake, thanks

🤔The 1 thing you canít buy is time , never saw a tombstone that read ď Wish I could have worked another dayĒ . And there are no guarantees on your health, you have to make the most of what youíre dealt 😎
