Sun, Jun 21 11:50am · How do you change the perception of aging? in Aging Well

WOW!!! I so admire the forthright way you are dealing with yourself and your thoughts often echo what I think and feel when in my introspective mood. One thing that is first and foremost is distinguishing between what I really want/need and that of others or society. I am so encouraged by this post as often I am discouraged by things but this is so refreshing. Now I need to get on with today which is obviously the only time I can take action and pursue the things that are important to me. Thanks so very, very much!

Oops. Started yesterday as had not been following the plan outlined here but had been thinking of increasing my walking for some time. It is a part of my broader "Healthy Lifestyle" initiative that I have on the go which includes 3 components – physical activity, nutrition and the mental aspect of it. Each of those have sub components such as mental includes social and mental health aspects.
I have adapted my approach to concentrate on distance/steps to start as I cannot walk for any length of time and only for a distance of less than a block continuously. I also will only doing it 5 days a week for several reasons – (1) to avoid overloading myself as I am busy working on other aspects of my lifestyle improvement plan and (2) avoid burnout. As usual I will reviewing this plan periodically as I go as that is usually required to keep on getting better at what I'm doing and adjusting for issues that arise.

I see fasting mentioned quite often on the web and have been curious about it but haven't looked into the matter so thanks for doing this. I always appreciate people's first hand experience so will be following closely

Starting today. Setting baseline for walking stats (steps, continuous walking time, speed, distance) so I can see progress over time. Thanks for doing this. As a volunteer I so appreciate other volunteers. What a great way to get things done!

Thanks for the ideas Carol. Keep it simple is one I look for as I try to adapt my eating habits. Coming from a very sedentary lifestyle means that possible changes I can make are vast numerous so simple, consistent plans seem to be crucial for my long term success

Just read a diaTribe article on overview of diabetes and prediabetes diets which provided a very quick reference on the various diets

I like this idea. Now to see if I can do it. The posting on leptin in this thread seems gives me an excellent jumping off point. Also Nick and Dan Buettner have some interesting videos on "Blue Zones" which are providing me with an overarching framework for my healthy lifestyle aspirations

I like your philosophy of life very much! I live by myself as well so need to work at keeping involved with others. I meet for coffee every Thursday morning with other guys my age in a seniors residence (not my home) where they supply the coffee and some baking free of charge. I have learned that seniors residences with personal services are a much better option than I thought and that is constantly changing for the better. I have a idea floating around in head about working with other seniors to promote enjoyment of life including being an active part of a community which seniors residences lend themselves to very well
