ok - so here it is June 18 ----------------- I have made my mind up to see 130 on the scale for my 60th birthday. Would rather see no belly hanging over my waistband - but going to settle for that 130 number ( which has been a goal for awhile now).
Yes - Im turning 60 in 36 days........................ sometimes I find just the thought of that unbelievable. 60? The number doesnt bother me as much as the thought of how I thought that was so old - back when I was so young.
My life is ok - my kids are grown and doing ok ------ I have my basic good health - Im happily retired and enjoying that ALOT
and Im financially secure and independent. I fight some mild depression but do a decent job keeping that in check without meds.
Ive let my gray hair grow out - the wisdom whites as they say - and I like the look. Most of my friends are busy dying their hair all sorts of colors that make them look so un natural. I used to ------------ not for me anymore.
But the body is clearly looking 60 ---------------- the flab where it didnt used to be - the belly bulge - and oh that dam cellulite. I can do better - and look better and so that is my "personal goal" for my sixties. AND I want to start my 60's being 130 pounds - if I can just get there - I will figure out how to maintain it.
I think I have found a friend who wants to take ballroom dance lessons with me. He is a little more advanced at dancing than I am ( a good challenge for me) and thats another thing off my bucket list. I love dancing.
OK ------------------- Im blogging this because I think writing it makes it real.
Now to do it................
