Almost 58 and working on Fabulous!!

I will be 58 years old next month. This weight struggle has been so long and so frustrating and such a "fun sucker" that I am sick of it. I have been through the "I am going to lose this weight in a month " stage and that didn't work. In my forties I thought, " I am a fluffy girl and that's okay, life's too short to worry about it."

I will be 58 years old next month. This weight struggle has been so long and so frustrating and such a "fun sucker" that I am sick of it. I have been through the "I am going to lose this weight in a month " stage and that didn't work. In my forties I thought, " I am a fluffy girl and that's okay, life's too short to worry about it." In my fifties I have encountered Mother Menopause and she has been a "bitch". My marriage has suffered, my self esteem and confidence has suffered. It is time to take action. If I don't, I will be sixty and feel sick and tired. I will be seventy and sad that I didn't do something about when I was younger. It is time for fabulous

All year long we focus on Healthy eating and moving the body to become fit. We do this for a chance to live life to the fullest. This fullness is to be shared at the dinner table at the holidays, not by what you put in your belly, it is to be measured from the joy you receive from being grateful for one more year with your loved ones. We do not get a guarantee to have another year with everyone you see, so make the most of the moment, and leave the worries for another day. Happy Holidays to you my Friend!

The time will pass anyway; emoticon we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use. emoticon
