Well I'm 60!
Sunday, November 18, 2018
I turned 60 on November 12, 2018. I feel 40, physically, maybe 50 mentally, and am pondering the remainder of my life which could be 20 or 30 years. My mom passed when she was 73, my dad was 83, but I am healthier than either of them were, so I suspect, barring any unforeseen problems, that I will outlive both of their ages.
Keto has made an enormous difference in my life. I don't worry about food anymore, I just eat what's keto. And if there is no keto, I eat nothing. I drink wine on occasion, and I probably always will. A glass or two once or twice a week is a pleasure I'm not willing to give up. And with keto, I don't have to.
As I reflect back on the past year, what I realize more than anything is that the weight I am at affects every aspect of my life. I'm not done losing, I probably have 10-15 more pounds to go, but I feel so good, and my happiness level is elevated so much that I am enjoying the journey to "get there". At last.
Weight is not everything, but health is, and weight is reflective of health. My markers at my last physical (except for LDL which I did not get the particle differentiation measured) were "that of a teenage" according to my doctor.
My goal for this next year is to focus on more physical activity, both planned and leisure, and to ramp up my strength training program. Next year, this time, I want to say "I'm still enjoying life, and I'm even better than last year!"
