I'm the youngest in my family, and I have always felt older than my peers. I thought when I became an adult that they would catch up but I am breaking down as fast as I developed and still feel 10 years older than I am.

Younger still!
This especially was brought home when I was at a 50year high school reunion last year: Out of 45 people, only 3 of us were willing/able to do some short walks, or hikes and biking....
I'm sure that having had some problems from 'overdoing' it, and seeking physical therapy to overcome those muscle/joint problems has been the key which is keeping me feeling "young". I know when I keep at it, I get rewards!!

Older. I'd like to say its "just" the autoimmune arthritis I have, but I can also put my finger on experiencing events that I wouldn't wish on the community, like the day my high school was smoke bombed as a freshman.

I have a life coach working with me to help develop strategies to cope, but we discovered last night that I'm still having values conflicts. I'm 41 in actual years, but it feels like I'm going on my fourth lifetime if that's possible.

I... think it really is a weird question - with no real answer possible. It's a really COMMON question, but when you really think about it, a number of revolutions around the sun is going to have different impacts on each individual, and there is no "feel of this age" that is common.

I look like me, and feel like me, and it is different than it was a few decades ago --- in some ways I feel more fit, while in other ways I feel less fit, but nothing that I could put down to "age".

I guess I am learning to just embrace and enjoy the here and now, without comparing it to what was and what might be...

Sir Terry Pratchett: "Science is not about building a body of known 'facts'. It is a method for asking awkward questions and subjecting them to a reality-check, thus avoiding the human tendency to believe whatever makes us feel good."

"The Inuit Paradox" ( discovermagazine.com/2004/oct/inuit-
paradox
): "...there are no essential foods—only essential nutrients. And humans can get those nutrients from diverse and eye-opening sources. "

Younger! Age is only a number, it doesn't mean I have to change the way I dress, or change my hobbies, etc. Embrace your inner child emoticon

I feel vibrant.
My exertions are tempered by a lifelong pain syndrome, but my health indicators place me at less than chronological age.

Right now, a sudden shift away from some developing bad food habits (Fried fast food as convenience while working a mobile job, lower hydration) has my body obviously clearing out waste, mainly through my skin, so I look like a spotty teenager!

Is this what I expected to feel at 51? Probably.
My encore career is physical, and I think that’s good.
I was at a desk, driving or seated about 70 percent of my workday before. And it was deadline driven stress, stress from coworkers, and absorbed stress. (News reporter)
My moonlighting gig was at a concert venue, 60 percent physical. Stressful, but immediate rewards, and well, music.
I think the physical movement is good for the body. Maybe not always comfortable, but beneficial.

Mostly younger. Reinforced by having had my children late and being in a second career, so that my “peers” are all a decade or so younger.

Starting Weight: 268 lbs. (November 2010)
Quasi-Maintenance: 165 lbs. (June 2011)
Goal Weight: 150 lbs. (reached December 8, 2011)

Size 22W to Size 4

Currently maintaining within 5 lbs. (+ or -) of goal. I weigh daily, but also use a tape measure and the fit of my clothes to guage how well I'm doing.

IDK... I feel like I am in my mid 60s, which I am.
I still do everything I did when I was younger... but I am not younger.


Curious...
How would you know what feeling older is really like if you have not been there yet?

While everyone gets older, not everyone feels their age.

Do you feel younger or older than your age?
