    Now over 50!

    My trainer was kind enough to take a few pics during a training session the other day as I celebrated my 50th birthday. Started lifting when I was 39, and have never looked back. Learned lots, but lots more to take on. Looking to take my first stab at competing in the next year.

    Jeeezz Dude,you look good! Exercise is the fountain of youth.I worked out for about six years,then I had an 18 year layoff [one after another family members got sick,I caregave,they died] In 2011 Mom passed after 8 years of Alzheimers and I found myself alone and depressed and I got back into bodybuilding.Muscle memory WORKS! Not to brag,but I look better now than before.I got a job at the gym as a trainer/attendant,and working out is a stress buster and kills depression.

    Win-win!

    Wow. That's some inspiration. Any shots of you when you started out?

    Nothing but respect for you SD! You've always got impressive results and you do it with a sense of humor.

    Thanks all! Appreciate the comments very kindly. I've always enjoyed my time in the gym, and continue to do so. As Stress Monkey said - I try and do it with a sense of humor...no point in taking yourself too seriously. Planning on it just getting better!
