Mid life male makeover!


I have a friend who is going through the male mid life makeover. It is not a crisis, but more of an extended rethink. He is approaching 50.

He sold his business, stopped smoking, started agressive weightlifting and aerobic exercise. Got body fat down to 9%. Dyed his hair, bleached and capped teeth, tanned at tanning salon, had lipo, bought new truck, motorcycle, boat and race car, wears bright blue cosmetic contacts, went to Vegas and rented a Viper, is talking about trading in his wife on a younger model, etc.

Not unusual, just funny to see how thorough his revisions are. I did not modify my life that greatly as I reached middle age because I enjoyed what I was doing and tried to live a healthy life style. I think the dyed hair, orangey tan and contacts look funny. The weight lifting, bleached teeth and lipo do look better, but not sure I would go that far.

What have you done to avoid looking too old? Sane or vain, in your view?
