How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are? --
Six sure signs I'm aging --
Old age! Are we there yet? --
Strollers, cars, and wheelchairs! --
I'm not old; I'm 45 plus shipping and handling --

Why can't I lose weight like I lose my keys, phone, and sex drive? --
Strong is the new skinny --
Become the CEO of your health --
Think like a doctor --
A heart-to-heart about your heart --
Keep moving! It's harder for the undertaker to catch up with you --
We're basically a houseplant with more complicated emotions: why we need water --
Sometime I laugh so hard, tears run down my leg --
Sleeping Beauty was on to something --
Did you know chocolate makes your clothes shrink? --

Life would be easier with piñatas placed throughout the day --
Mistakes & regrets: it's time to let them go! --
When there are lumps in the road --
Decline to decline --
Friends are therapists you can drink with --
An attitude of gratitude --
Be the person you want to have lunch with --
Be happy: it drives people crazy --
I want to be cremated: it's my last chance for a smokin' hot body --
It's never too late to be the person you want to be.
Responsibility: by Joan Lunden.
