    Unhappy this is what i hate

    i just want to get something off my chest. i started working out seriously about 8 months ago or so. it is now my life and i love every minute of it. what depresses me about the situation is i didnt get into lifting when i was younger. i mean if i had gotten into it 10, 15, or 20 years ago who knows where i might be right now. anyone else have similar feelings or a similar situation?

    yes. I feel the exact same way. I feel, in restrospect, that i wasted a lot of good years being a lazy little sloth.

    Well if you had waited 10 more years, you'd be that much further behind. Be happy you didn't wait any longer.

    I got into it when I was 24 years old (I'm 32 now).

    Don't let it get you down! You took control of your life and fitness and that is more than many people do. I lifted intermitently throughout my 20's and 30's, enough to keep fit and keep a spinal curvature from gettng worse and to keep the pain of my fibromyalgia at bay. I was forced to take 4 years off for surgeries and such and just got back to lifting a little over a year ago. I'm coming back stronger than I ever thought I would and I'm lifting with more thought toward specific goals than I ever did when I was younger. The only regret I have is that I haven't pushed the hubby to stay in shape with me and he's looking at some serious health issues if he doesn't get it together soon. Look forward not back!

    You said it. Don't worry about it... there's nothing you can do.

    Most people are in the same boat, myself included. As already was said, imagine where you would be if you never started.

    A more respectable excuse for why everything hurts!
    The lions sing and the hills take flight.
    The moon by day, and the sun by night.

    Let the Lord of Chaos rule.

    I started training when I was about 15, now I'm 32. I've had extended periods where I didn't train but I always go back to it as it's a deep-seated pleasure. Overall I'd say I've made my greatest progess in the last five years due to increased experience, experimentation and more knowledge.

    Regarding you situation you should be glad you found lifting/bodybuilding, some people never exercise and miss out on the benefits all their lives. It's not like you're an 80 year-old man
