Same here...I have a little momma pooch after four......

I've been blessed with very strong elderly women in my life ...Even with age they are still beautiful, they never lost their inner self within, that's what they have taught me, that what I have taken from them.....Inner self bring peace....

I see flaws, but I don't get super stressed out about them (MOST of the time anyway, I do have my days). I've lost weight in the last 6 months and am stronger and feel better about myself. I am a continuing work in progress, even at 46, and I'm good with that!

I enjoyed the article so thank you!

By the time you start to age, you need to have found something rather than looks to judge yourself by. Narcissism is cruel to the old.

Pretty face, good body, still unsatisfied and over critical of myself, despite it.

Devastatingly handsome.





But really...I think that I've put a lot of effort into making myself look this way, and I wonder if that effort put into something else would not have been better served. I look in the mirror and remind myself that I'm a father and I should be living like other fathers, not working out in the gym, keeping fit, enjoying health endeavours. Where I live (central AL), seems like once a guy becomes a parent, it's all about Little League, eating BBQ, watching college football, and MAYBE a little hunting season. None of those really about me the individual.

Vanity is not a good thing. Yet I pursue it anyway.

I'm a father and I still work out 4 days a week and do cardio at least 3 evenings a week. I know it takes some time away from my kids, but at the same time, my kids deserve to have me in good condition as I age. In ten years, maybe they'll be at the gym working out with me

Who says you can't do the parent stuff just because you care about your fitness and workout! That's seriously the most ridiculous excuse that I've heard as to why some don't exercise. I'm a mom of two and I spend no more than an hour to an hour and a half every day at the gym. It doesn't take 4-5 hours to get it done. I still manage to take my kids to and from school, go to meetings at the school, shuttle my son to his karate and football practices and games and attend their school functions. Why do some people think you can't be a good wife/husband/mother/father and stay fit at the same time?

Since my 50's I've always thought.."Ah, the aging of (my name)"
