I used to be really flexable from being in gymnastics in high school. I would tell myself to take a few minutes every day to stretch and keep that flexability. And to be as active as possible.

Many people wouldn't have come as far as you have - they just sit around feeling sorry for themselves.  You sound like you're acting logically, given the circumstances.  Keep thinking positive and do what you're able.  You're a good role model for your child.  Sending positive thoughts to you and best wishes for everything good in your life.

The​ saying, "We never know what tomorrow may bring", is something that I would deeply drill into my younger self!  

 

At the age of 36 I thought I was on the job that I would retire from,  that I was in decent shape and that I was sharing with my only child the greatest lessons I had learned in life, so things were looking alright.  But I had no idea that I would suffer a heart attack that same year!  Today I am 51 and my life hasn't been the same since.  I've never returned to work, I have 8 specialty doctor's and I had to use the fund's that I had put away for his education so that I could make house and car notes!....So, the thought that I'm doing 'decent' or 'alright' in any area of my life, should never be good enough.

 

 Always go that extra mile...because you just never know!!!

Dear Hector: 

 

I was also a fitness trainer and swimming instructor for over 25 years, and I must inform you that while swimming is great exercise for anyone of any age (my sons were swimming as infants and I still swim), swimming does not help osteoporosis.   It doesn't build bone.  People must add weight bearing exercise in order to build bone.  Have your swimming clients add strength training exercises such as walking, lifting light weights, wall push ups, etc.,  and tell them to try to win the FitBit for encouragement! 

 

77 year old runner!

Good afternoon.

 

I have been a personal trainer and Aquatic Instructor for over seventeen years here in Central Florida.

The majority of my clients are seniors. I encourage those clients that are concerned with Osteoporosis to join my Aquatic exercise class. To their delite, most of them fit, and some of them have lost a few pounds. The low impact on the bones and joints is a plus.

Sincerely,

Hector H Suarez
