Oh man, I have messed up real bad! My kids were here all weekend, and we had birthday dinner, and I have not quit eating yet. I better get started. I have been so bad and then I just watched this tv show, the Batchlor Pad and all these sharp looking very shaply women on there, made me feel bad! LOL! But as Scarlet said, "Tomorrow is another Day"!
MRSMLBJ, You are so sweet! But honey you just can't see the middle! I'm popping out of my 14's and refuse to get out the 16's! I can loose 30lbs by November if I set my mind to it. I wish I could take your water class! I love the water! You can look great by your event too! Yes, those ladies will be so jealous! Let's do it! I'm fired up today, started back on my drops and feeling peppie! Keep in touch! K
Karen - just added you as friend and checked out your page. Girl, you look good now. A lot of my ladies in my class bulge in their swim suits and I know you'll look great if you have until November. I am working on getting down for my 40th class reunion. At my 30th a lot of the "little" girls had bulked up and since I was always big, I could be back at my HS weight by then. Wouldn't that bite them. The "fat kid" being smaller than they are now. HA! Wish me luck.
Hi! No icing on the rolls but plenty of butter! I have started today, taking my drops again. I exercised today and trying to drink the water! I need to do this thing! Planning a trip in November and I have to get into a bathing suit! GEEZZZZ! LOL, need your help! smiles! K
OK, I'm sorry, LOL LOL, that is depressing, so you are correct, I need to re-think that and just say 50 something! Some days I feel 30, and others (OH WEll)! I have got to get the diet thing going on again, I was so bad today, went out to eat and eat fresh yeast rolls, yum! Going to get back to HCG tomorrow! Where are you from? Karen
Hello 1952's, Just have to join ya, as that was a very good year. I was a September baby that year! I am finding it hard to believe we are soooo close to the big 60! Congrats to all of you who have already lost those extra pounds! I am just starting again, and not very excited about it! Motivate me! I need to do this, my clothes are tight! Good luck to all! Karen
I just had a birthday on July 12 and one of the ladies in my water exercise class asked me how old I was. When I told her I was 58 another one almost screamed in disbelief. They all thought I was still in my 40's. I had to bring my driver's license to the next class to prove it.
I guess your Dr. has a point there are some old cars still going, but not too many.I was hard on my body and expected alot from it.Paybacks canbe tough. As my mom would say "It's time to pay the fiddler." good luck too with your health.I had gastricbypass surgery in Jan. but the damage to my body was done long before that.-150lbs off so far-more to go yet.
I told my Dr that my body was like an old car, parts are starting to go bad, his reply to me was,"there are lots of old cars still going because they were taken care of along the way". I think it was his way of telling me that if I had chosen a healthy lifestyle I would'nt be in the shape I'm in, but it's not too late to change, and I am.
Is getting older getting better? My parts waranty is starting to run out. Need two knee replacements, need more crowns for my teeth-but I still have my own teeth underneath the crowns.Watching my 5 yr. old grandson, I miss the energy that he has now. I don't know how older women even think about starting a family in later life.As a kid I never liked to take naps,I would be missing something. Now they don't sound too bad sometimes. Sometimes you just have to recharge yourself and rest.I feel lucky I made the first 58 years on this earth, and don't know how far ahead the other numbers will go,but I read an old saying one time-"too soon old,too late smart" Their might be somethin to be said about that. We do get some wisdom as we get older and we also are more accepting of ourselves too.Not sure what is around the corner, but I await to take the next step...Going for the Goal!
