Yeah, the 40s. That was what happened to me. I managed to go along through my life, never thin, but always pretty healthy for the most part. And then the 40s hit and your arms get to short and you walk around with three pairs of glasses on your head, the aches and pains start up, you get an injury and it never really goes away, the weight starts to come on even though you're eating the same and just as active as ever, doctors start talking about hysterectomies and statins. I'm so glad to find paleo/primal to halt the process and reverse some of it.

There was a skinny lady who came to my exercise class once. She was so weak she couldn't do any of the exercises! She couldn't use her body, so I didn't feel jealous at all for her being skinny.
