I thought I was ok. But a few nights ago I had a major meltdown while trying to get dressed for a program. Both of my girls at home still are gorgeous. I remember what it was like to feel pretty. It's so hard to look in the mirror and see what's happening at 48.
I often tell my girls that I'm unhappy with my weight because it doesn't matter how much you weigh...it matters how much you USED to weigh...because you know deep inside that if you used to weigh that much it's usually your own &(*$ fault you weigh what you do now. LOL

I don't mind aging. Since i turned 40 i noticed a huge change in my body weight , that's the only problem i have about aging.Once I put on weight I have to work really really really hard to lose it. In my 20s and 30s losing weight was a piece a cake now its driving me nuts to have this weight and realizing how hard it is to lose it, but i am not giving up i need to lose weight and be fit again.
I don't mind aging, it's the things that come with it that are a pain in the butt. I am having a hard time losing weight, something that was never a problem before I hit my 40's. I also have high blood pressure and more aches and pains than ever before. I try to stay very active and keep moving. I like getting older better than the alternative. lol
Last year I spent a few months unhappily adjusting to issues that have come with entering my new decade. I'm glad to be over that phase and onto adapting.
I'm grateful that I am not afraid to ask questions and see doctors when something doesn't seem right...I am not happy with how I went about my 20s & 30s and as quickly as they went by, I don't intend to feel that way about the next twenty years!

I have more figure and muscle than when I was gym rat at a younger age.. I think I look more hot now than when I was 20 lol..

When it's gradual enough that I notice a small thing here or a tiny thing there it's just life. When I notice something big all of a sudden then it's scary! But it's definitely better than the alternative.
What's sad is how the older I get the more I notice that women at every age worry about getting older! So at 43 I can hear a 20-something dreading turning 30 and I just want to roll my eyes. :-)
A few years ago I complained about aging to my mom. Her reply to me was pretty much the same, as it should have been.

As I sit here with hair dye on my hair and leaving it on an extra 10 minutes for the stubborn grey's I am feeling okay. I realize today is the being of tomorrow. Whenever I allow myself to put on extra pounds and stop exercising my body tells me..GET UP!! Lately I have experienced so many aches and pains in my hips and knees. My body is telling me it needs motion and circulation, so here I am...
Aging isn't so bad, I will be 45 in November its all the ailments that come along with it...But I am not going down without a fight

I REALLY want to fit in my Joe Jeans someday soon.
I don't mind aging...much! I just turned 45, have had gray hairs since 25, and have arthritis in my knees. But inside, I still feel like a little girl. Which is pretty neat because I have more money now than when I was little, so I can indulge that girl inside!
I guess the wrinkles aren't so great, even my smile lines gained by tons of smiles. Oh well. I'll have to live with them. Too chicken to do much about it except lotions!

I know it is inevitable for us all. I used to wonder when I was 20, what it woulwd be like when I turned 30 and so on. I am approaching 50 now and am told I look 40 something so I am good with that.
But, I do strive to help myself look younger. I don't use much if any makeup, & that helps. Makeup causes the skin to look oder over time, in my opinion. :If there were a "Fountain of Youth" I would be the first to use it.
When somthing is of God, NOTHING can stop it. Amen..
I am nothing without God.

I don't like to even think about it. The wrinkles, your hands start looking terrible with all that loose skin. BUT....theres nothing I can do to stop it. Like my saying goes..."I might have to grow old, but I don't have to get fat"

Have a wonderful & positive & energetic day!!
My favorite verse in the bible is "Be still and know that I AM GOD" Psalm 46:10 also "Greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world" 1 John 4:4 So you see.....I am nothing without God!!!! His Holy Word is True B-asic I-nstructions B-efore L-eaving E-arth
Personally, I don't mind it all that much considering the alternative, lol. I do LOVE how much growth there's been, emotionally, each decade that I've aged. I am a young looking 48, and that helps, and once I get my weight under control I hope to look even more well-preserved. I still feel about 20 on the inside. I'm shocked when I realize I have lived such a long life, already! How about you, any thoughts?
