lol....maybe I can answer that in a couple of years, when we see what kind of shape i'm in.

Personally, I never would have had the type of discipline I have now when I was in my teens or even mid twenties. Yes, my physical potential would have been greater, but I would not have had the type of diet, cardio and training discipline that I have now. Older me would whip younger me's ass. So yeah, that's just one advantage - greater discipline. Obviously not applicable to all, but applicable to many.
