Barbara Todaro Thanks for the reminder. Right now I am heading out for a two-mile walk along my country road. Earlier, I helped my hubby lift 50-pound bags of birdseed.  Glad I stay in shape so I can be his assistant.

Barbara,

Yes, I did not know that, and neither one of us has any issues...There was a Harvard Study done in a home where patients could not get us to use the bathroom.  They started with smallest of weight lifing .  Within a few month, they could get up and go to the bathroom by themselves.  This restored their dignity and all their vital signs improved.  A

I have never broken a bone. (I've only been in a hospital 'for me' 2x 'ever'.)
I also have no fillings in my teeth and don't need any, as of week before last checkup. Capricorn rules bones and teeth and we are also quite hard-headed!  
Oh! And I do work with some weights. Not like Buff Babe Barbie! <3
But it's all good, right?

Yes, I did know that. I've been doing weight bearing exercises since I was in my early 30's.... that;s almost 4 decades. And it explains why when a car hit me in a parking lot and when I fell down my garages stairs and smacked the concrete, I may have been bruised, but nothing broke. At 50 I was told I had the bones of a 30 years old after a test.

Yes, I knew that Barbara, I did weight lifting for about 2 years twice per week at age 69/71 and should really get back to it.  Exercising,  and aerobics does nothing for your bones. Thanks for the reminder.  So far my bone scans have been good no signs of osteoporosis!

I know this and I'm glad to see you spreading the word.  Weightlifting is an essential part of maintaining strength and fitness.

I'm not a skinny girl, but I'm strong and reasonably fit.  I lift weights a few times a week, take Lagree Pilates classes a few times a week, walk the dogs just about every day and do my daily planks.

As I get older, what drives me is fear of losing mobility and independence.

I sure did and it does not need to be "heavy" weight lifting either. I think we should all be doing it in some form from early on in life. Waiting until you are 50-60-70, well you know the story of teaching an old dog new tricks. There are some exceptions
