Some people believe that once you hit 50, you are definitely over the hill. But then I look at my parents who are both over 50 and they don't seem old to me at all. They are very active as they were when they were 40. I think you are as old as you feel/act.

You are never old, it only depend on you...I already saw people with 70 and 80 years old learning how to ski.YOu just get old if you want, if you don't want you could do anything

Wow 70 and 80 year olds skiing? That's awesome. I hope I feel that energetic when I get that age!

I would have to say it would be 70 for me. I have seen way to many older people still having that swing. I don't think you are old at 50. I see my grandmother who can't do much of anything but laundry slow. She is over 70 and yes she is old.
