As you know, I've been making a life-style change since January of this year. I've been exercising and eating healthier which has resulted in my shedding 62 pounds. I decided to refer to it as "shedding" rather than losing weight, because losing implies that I am missing those pounds. Nothing could be further from the truth! I definitely don't miss them, and I will do my best to make sure I never encounter them again!
Though I personally don't miss the pounds, apparently my body does; I'm sagging and bagging in places where I once was quite firm...that is firm and tight as a stuffed sausage! Now, low and behold, I hesitate to extend my arms when I'm outside, for fear a strong breeze might turn me into a glider and I'll be soaring away into the sunset!
My thighs are loose and lumpy, and my tummy, once tumid, now is hanging over my Hoohah; and my boobs....oh my poor boobs! Once bodacious orbs, they are now sagging to the point where I know what Joan Rivers was talking about when she said she could have a mammogram and a pedicure at the same time!
I wish I had made this change years ago, when there was still a chance that everything would snap back into it's original position. I guess at age 70, it's more important that I am becoming more agile, no longer have to take blood pressure medication, and gasping for breath is a thing of the past.
And let me just say, if you're young and overweight, take action to change your life now; don't wait, It's your best chance to lose the flab without a lot of sag!
