Feeling too old for this procedure. Anybody out there 50+? Halla back.

I will be 56 in April and my surgery is scheduled for Feb 5th. I'm so looking forward to it and a new lease on the next stage of my life.

Age is a number. I had my surgery in August 2016 at age 55. I'm 57 now. I've lost about 150 pounds. I am a nationally ranked fencer in my age group (24th among women 50-59 and 33rd for all women over 40), can deadlift 235 pounds and back squat 225.

What's old? I have more energy than either my 19 or 16 year old daughters. I'm in better shape. I regularly get checked out by people at the gym (especially from behind) who are then a bit surprised when I turn around and they realize I'm not 30. (Although I look pretty good for my age.)

Age is a number. Don't let it define you. the only regret I have is waiting until I was 55 to do this.
