I never thought I'd be 50, and now I'm just weeks away. I don't know what 50 is supposed to feel like, but I don't feel like I'm almost 50. I'm not sure I'll feel or act "mature," whatever that means.
The one thing I do know is that I don't want to use my age as an excuse to let my health - mental and physical - to continue to deteriorate. I've been up and down and up (currently) with this weight battle and am exhausted trying to beat it. Yes, I agree with the government that it is a disease, but a preventable one. My addiction to food is real, debilitating, and dangerous. I'm pledging this first year of the 50s as my year to beat it once and for all. Now, I guess I have to resign from the 40 yr old group and join the 50+, right?!
