If you haven't experienced this yet, let me share that when you get older, there comes a time in your life when your body abandons you. For some of us, it starts in your late 50s. Suddenly, you begin to gain weight even though you have not changed your diet. Further, if you rarely exercise, that lack of movement also will take a toll on your body.
It totally sucks. Pretty soon you find you can't do things that you used to do. Like balance on a ladder. Or squat to look at a bug. Fortunately, there is help to stop that degeneration. Although, truth be told, I think most people just adapt to the changes and adjust for restricted movements. They make compensations, too, without even realizing it.
The way I look at it, we can take charge of our bodies and try to reduce the damage nature inflicts. It just happens out of nowhere. Personally, the day I will probably super regret is the day when I discover I can no longer eat jalapenos like they are chocolate, so I relish each and every bite now. And maybe that particular malfunction will never happen.
