i know I have much more confidence, so I guess that makes me mrs courageous. I'm not afraid to decline someones offer of a food I should not eat. I am not afraid of offending them.

My name is Martha.
My new ticker shows me slow as a bunny and going up and down . I want to level out!

This has nothing to do with weight for me, but I feel way more courageous in general as I age.



Moving in new directions.

Well, I put on a swimming suit and got back in the pool at 300 pounds because that was what I needed to do to get healthy again. Not much intimidates me.

I've lived and traveled all over the world, made it through a coup and martial law, survived a brain aneurysm...there is very little that slows me down.

I am not any more or less courageous now than I have ever been.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

I feel more empowered turning 50 for some reason but I have always been courageous as it is the only way I know how to survive what life throws us when we aren't looking.

I think once you hit a certain age you find your voice and the little things that bothered you don't seem to mean anything.

Starting to like the new me!

You are right, a person just does what they have to do, and no time to ponder any of it, maybe someday, in assisted living or something, we can all sit and ponder to each other.....

Plan for tomorrow, but enjoy the heck out of today.

I have lived through a personal hell over the last year, fighting my husband's addictions, poverty, and more.

I have people telling me all the time how "brave" and "courageous" I am... I'm not. I'm just me. I don't feel strong. I don't feel courageous. I just do what I have to.

I've never been a timid person, though. I'm not afraid of running by myself at night. I'm not afraid of driving by myself (or making left turns, like my anxiety-driven grandmother.) I just am. I hit the weights in the scary part of the gym (with the big grunting guys.)

I am a practical person. Fear is an irrational thing, and when you really get around to the nuts and bolts, what we fear is harmless, and rarely even close to the reality. So you have bits and bobs hanging out of a bathing suit. When I went to the beach a couple years ago, I discovered that EVERYONE did. Those Miami-based TV show bikini bodies? Are paid actresses. What you see in reality is usually worse than you are. ;) You won't be the biggest, you won't be the smallest, and most importantly? No one cares. If they think of you at all, it'll be in passing, and then they're moving on with their microcosm of a life.

There is nothing like overcoming insecurity and succeeding at reaching a goal to give someone more confidence and courage. Personally, I still feel very vulnerable when it comes to certain social situations (Yes, even Moi). And now that I am older (if not wiser) trying new physical exercise stuff intimidates me. I am more fearful of taking an Extra long walk, alone, away from easy transportation home or a rest area. But, on the other hand, I am not shy about doing my best at exercising and looking a little silly to someone watching. I've developed the ability to laugh at myself. But bathing suits...that's scary to me.
