At age 68, I am eagerly learning new sports and finally going to the gym. I want to have abs that show: a real six-pack! As I document my progress and exploration, talk about good health, diet, tricks to succeed, and show pix of my changing shape, I want to be inspired and motivated by others who share their stories of weight loss, sports success, and body building.
