I agree with this so much. I can't tell you how many of my friends use "Well, we're all getting older" as an excuse to let themselves go. Yes, we are getting older. Yes, it takes more exercise to keep fit, as opposed to when we were in high school and eat French fries for lunch every day and not gain an ounce. But it's not impossible.
