    I think I’m old

    I am 47, used to be young dumb and full of cum. Now I’m beat up and fat. I think I am at a point where I can go one of two ways. I used to be able to grab myself by the bootstraps but I have very slowly faded away. I need a belief and a vision. I used to love to lift, not so much cardio though. I feel like everyday is just a waste. Not sure where I am going with this but I think there is something inside of me that wants to but is scared to get it back.

    Get back into it. It was a little tough getting things rolling for me but after almost 2 months I'm so glad I did. Feeling better than I have in long time.

    I was feeling the same way. So out of shape, eating like garbage, drinking 60-70 beers a week. Literally had trouble doing 10 pushups and could only do 1 pullup.

    You need any advice, motivation just ask. Lot of good and knowledgable people on here.

    I wouldn't blame any of that on your age. If you want to lift, lift. If you don't, don't. Plenty of other things to do.

    You will regret not starting, but I guarantee you, you will not regret starting. I have never, not once walked out of the gym and wished I never went!!

    Just commit to getting started.

    Fakie is right... look past the age thing. That doesn't matter.

    Think about this label you gave yourself "Now I'm beat up and fat"... sucks to think that way huh? The best part is that it's fixable. You either get on the right track now or it just gets worse. The worse it gets, the longer the road it is to get back on track.... and you gotta hope you don't develop any serious health conditions until you do decide to.

    Dude, the hardest thing is starting, just start, no excuses no second guessing yourself just start and start slow. Set up short term milestones so you can hit them and see forward moving progress and a long term goal.

    People say you are too old to be working out, I ALWAYS say you are too old NOT to be working out..

    OP, my avi picture is from 3 and a half years ago. A month before I turned 58. Also a month before I started noticing "something" wasn't quiet right. I got sick and things went downhill rapidly. I went over a year without walking to my mailbox and back. I let my gym membership lapse...

    I'm back in the gym 4, 5, or occasionally 6 days a week (at 61 years old). I also take IV infusions 2 days every 3 weeks. I have to wear braces on each arm to do the lifting I'm able to manage now. I'm still fighting. You should FIGHT for what you want! Why not?

    47 isn't old though. So stop thinking it is.
    After all, most of it is just mental.
    Start focusing on the positive and Don't give up.

    I am 49 years old. For about the first year I was mostly feeling the improvements.

    At a year and a half I started to see my shoulders getting broader.

    Now I am finally starting to see size improvements in other places, mostly my triceps and traps.

    But if someone were to ask me if it is worth it I would definitely say yes. Just being in better health is worth it.

    Just take it slow and do not overdo it. You can do it.

    Over 60 years I've stopped training 7 times.

    But I started back 8 times. Hope this helps.

    I started back at 48. Never looked back and changed my life. Lost 40lb, lost a few inches in the waist, lowered my blood pressure. Now at 54 stronger than ever, healthy and no meds. OP time to get started, good luck. Hardest thing to do is start the first day.

    First off, you are here. Second, you know somethings not right. Frankly, that is half the battle! 25% is actually doing it for ten days. I mix lifts and cardio. The last 25% is another ten days. After that, you're hooked! So, bottom line: 10+10 and you'll never look back.

    What I would give to be 47! When people ask me how I still train at least 4 days a week I tell them "The hardest part of training is getting through the front door of the gym". Once you get inside good things almost always happen. Even on days when I am not feeling my best - I pick some favorite lifts and do something a little different to just have fun. Those days do happen even now BUT not very often. Also do a log of your workouts so you can look back occasionally and see how far you've come.

    Good Luck

    All good advice given above.

    You just need to take a deep breath and take the plunge. Once you get started, it becomes easier. It's like pushing off on a bicycle. The initial push off is hard, but once you get momentum it becomes easy.

    I wish I hadn't pissed away my much of my twenties and nearly all of my thirties being a lazy slob. But even though I regret that, after 2.5 years of training, I'm now 40 and in better shape than a lot of 20 and 30 year olds.

    I would also say you need a vision and a plan, but nothing extravagant. You don't need to aim to be the next Schwarzenegger. Aim to lose 3 inches off your waist, or 20 pounds on the scale. Then when you achieve that goal, plan the next one. Keep them small and attainable, but recognise they'll all add up to something bigger.

    Well, I got a weighting scale and weight myself everyday. Facing my off putting weight daily help to keep my motivation to get out there. Try doing it, it might help. Off course, I had some fitness plan that I had been putting off too. 35 is not too late. even 70 is not too late. Nothing is late. Just keep going dude!

    You've got to keep at it, I find I'm mentally so much more positive when I'm regularly training. It's an easy option to give up on it and slow down when you start getting older. Just look at guys that have let themselves go and think to yourself "I'm not going down that road!"

    It ain't the age, it's the mileage.

    I feel better now at 40 than I did at 25. It's all about lifestyle.

    start slow. you will build up you will see. start with easy weightlifting and then move on. weightlifting is a lot about psychology. Don't get depressed you can do it!

    I lost weight walking then running at 44, joined a gym at 47, and started Powerlifting at 49. A new job at 52 limited my training, then Covid at 53 took me out of the gym all together. Saved up and built a home gym, now I'm starting all over again. Ill be 54 in January.

    I agree with bodyhard on this one:
