I do not know of a "Over 50 Group" except for those of us on this forum. But, then I do not know what a group is.
It surely is good to have you here with us on this thread. If you learn of a group for us, let us know also.
I love this thread. It has meant so very much to me.
(we are up to 12 pages and counting, it seems.)
The reason I was showing 5 pages where you were showing 12 pages is that I had asked for that in "Options" rather than "Forum Options".
It is my understanding that if a thread gets closed, then if another is opened and it is requested, the Moderator can refer viewers of the closed thread to the new thread.
Hi... a couple of us were thinking about and wondering if we could start a sub group of 'over 50's'.. we would need to make it really accessible to everyone who wants to drop over.
do you think we should ask a moderator?
i had an(other) 'over 50' question:
weight bearing excercises are especially good in our quest to keep the old osteoporosis at bay..
are resistance excercises as good, or are they at all effective in this case..
or do we need to rattle our bones by weight bearing excercises.
(told you we need an over 50 group..
some of the young whipper snappers at this forum just might not understand !!! )
What is the difference between a "group" and a "thread" such as this?

I put on some moderate tempo instrumental music (Govi) and a scenery VHS tape and the next thing I knew I had completed 60 min of exercise and enjoyed every minute of it. I would say that Sharon's style of working out covers all the bases for a good osteoporosis workout. This is definitely my new indoor exercise.

Day #3 at 100 % raw - age 51 !
EZ rider and Alice,
So glad that you are enjoying the interval training with the weights and rebounder! It does make the time go by so much faster. I like to use the big exercise ball to sit on to do arm weights and also to lay on to do sit ups and push ups and a few others. My favorite is to stretch on the ball by laying on it (stomach down) and just RELAXING the whole body - really stretches the back.
Now, I just need to go do it!!
Thanks for the info on soy. Only time I got hot flashes was when I ate processed sugar. Guaranteed hot flash within 10 minutes. Don't really do soy anymore (does miso count?).

Well lets get this Over 50 posting Moving
Well Howdy all, I would like to keep this thread going. There are so many of us over 50 too. So let keep them posts coming and we all can share what we are doing that is helping us on our Raw food path. I got my wife to take out the old Convection oven that has been on the kitchen counter for along time and never getting used. Both of our kids are gone now and we don't need it there anymore. I will sell it in a garage Sale. Or send it to my son if he wants it. I will let him pay the postage. Well the good news is a brand New Green Star Juicer is taking its place up on the counter now. Now I like that alot. It just came today too. Between that and the green smoothies I will be feeling fantastic. When people do come over to our house they can't believe there is no Stove in the kitchen. I told them we don't eat anything cooked so we took it out and added more space to store things. Plus we have so many boxes of veggies and fruits all on a nice stand in the kitchen. The green stuff is in the fridge. Well Hope to see more posts in here talk to you soon Doug in Calif 100% Raw and loving it...
