You're only traveling back in time while inverted. They spend most of the main part of the movie not inverted. When they're in Mumbai, or stealing the item from the armored car, Neil is not inverted, otherwise he would seem to be moving backwards, and he would need to carry oxygen.
So, you are saying when Washington first (from our perspective) meets Neil (Pattinson) at the club, Neil has previously "finished" inverting himself and is now back into the "normal" flow of time. Right? Assuming this is what you are saying did Neil simply do one huge inversion at some point and is not reliving his life in his own past? Is it possible to travel forward? Is Neil inverting himself separately each time? If so, that would mean traveling back to the future multiple times too. These ideas are a lot easier to consume when the magical time travel happens instantaneously in some impossible to understand way. But when you have to live through the time travel it seems to add another level of confusion.

Which makes me realizes something else... I guess you must be "un-aging" when you are inverted, otherwise every time you went backward in time, you'd end up being older than you were previously at some specific date.
