5/24/17 – Day 11
11. What do you like most about your body? Has what you like most about your body changed as you've progressed towards your goals?
Then (How I responded 5 years ago) - I have been trying to figure out what I like best about my body. That has changed over the years. I use to say my eyes. At another time I said my legs, or being short. I have liked any number of different things over the years, but I’m having trouble now at age 66 picking one thing. I have been thinking about this for several days, because, of course, I had read the questions ahead of time. Finally I have decided. Three years ago, I was having an allergic reaction and the doctors couldn’t pinpoint what was causing my rash and hives. I decided to eliminate the hair color and go au natural! I feel that I’m very lucky because I have a beautiful silver color. Because of my healthy eating and lack of chemicals, it is healthy and shiny and reflects the light. Age has had a way of diminishing the beauty of many of my parts, but the highlights and sparkle floating round my head are a monument to my endurance and perseverance.
Now – The body doesn’t get more beautiful when we are my age. Even if we are healthy and a good weight, there are wrinkles and sags. So I have to go with my above choice of my hair. It is still beautiful, silvery, and healthy. It is what gets me the most compliments.
