It Hurts to Get Older

Growing Older Just Hurts

We all know it. We accept it. I put my back out for the first time at around 30. All my coworkers said, “Yup, that’s when it starts to happen.” Sure enough, it happened again. And again. I’m sure my chiropractor was grateful for the business. What was next? Was it the neck, shoulders or knees? I’m not sure of the exact order but yup, the poor old body’s getting older, suck it up, sister.

Crippled at 30

That first time I put my back out, I was completely crippled. It took my friend a good 10 minutes to shoehorn me into her car to take me to her specialist. On the way, she stopped for lunch and I watched a few old ladies walking along with canes. In my current condition, I made them look spry. I had a bit of a pity party, wondering where my youth had gone! Luckily, I was put right and got back to being my proper age.

Hopeless at 40

But by 40, it wasn’t so easy to recover. My knees hurt pretty much all the time, so much so that it was nearly impossible to get up from the floor. I found some costly joint supplements that seemed to help but often did without because of the price.

Looking forward to 50!

Now that I have dropped weight and gotten nicely strong, my knees don’t bother me at all. Too much sitting definitely messes with my neck and back so I mainly work at a standing desk. I don’t use any joint supplements, nor over the counter nor prescription medication of any sort. I don’t even know how to convey how grateful I am for this new lease on life! If you are looking for where to start, feel free to ask me! Or just go to my endorsements page. These programs are carefully selected and I stand behind them. I’ve had consistent results and have learned how to maintain health and a lean, strong body for life. I wish the same for you. Let me know how I can help you achieve your goals!

    LOL Omi! I constantly moan about getting older! Yep, my knees and back hurt more and I’m just plain TIRED a lot of the time… but VI has really helped and I’m the fittest I’ve ever been :) Love your work…

  • Great article, Naomi. What you say is completely true. By losing weight and doing strength training and some flexibility work our bodies can stay young. You are a great example of that.

    • Thanks Joe! You are another great example!!! In a weird way, I can’t wait to see how we all turn out at 80 and 90, you know? Not that I’m rushing time!
