Now that we are parents, are you still as athletic as you were as a youngster?

I am in much better shape than I was 20 yrs ago, but I didn't look bad in high school either. But in between was a nightmare. I think I was more athletic in school, now I just do it b/c I don't ever want to gain the weight back

  • When I was a teenager, I was very very thin, but I was never athletic and I wouldn't say I was ever in shape. Now that I'm in my 30s, I am not nearly as thin and could stand to lose a few pounds, but I would say I'm in better shape. I'm much more active now that I have kids. I don't sit in an office all day, and there's a lot we do together as a family. All four of us are taking martial arts classes, something I never would have done when I was younger.

  • way more athletic- except I used to be on the swim team. those workouts are AMAZING! hopefully in a year or two the kids will know how to swim/be in swim classes so I can get some workout time in the pool back for myself:)

  • I am more athletic than when I was younger. I was always tired as a teen mainly because I was eating typical crappy food teens love. I was thin and very active just a bit more sluggish than I am now. As an adult I eat healthy, exercise daily and overall have a better outlook on life.  At 40 I could run circles around my 20 something self and I am
