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."
