I have no idea why the thought of turning 60 this year is bothering me so much. No other age has affected me this way. I think about how it was back when I was a young girl and had a pretty decent figure. Then I think about how I have gained weight every year and can’t seem to get it off no matter what I do. I know I didn’t just wake up one day and there it was, and every day that I wake up and see it I feel worse about it. I just can’t get motivated to do anything about it.
Back in 2002 when we lived in McAllen, I met several older ladies who had had liposuction in Texas. They said it made them feel so much better about themselves and how they looked but I don’t think that any kind of cosmetic surgery is for me. A couple of the women I knew who had that done said they would do it again, though.
I just realized today that we only have six weeks before we go back to work, and I am worried that my pants aren’t going to fit. I want to lose at least ten pounds before we go back, but I really don’t know where to start. I also want to start walking more, but the plantar fasiciitis makes it difficult to do that. I really need a good pair of shoes that will offer the support I need so my feet don’t hurt. Does anyone out there have any suggestions on a brand of shoes that I can get? Do you have a diet or diet website you use that helps you stay on track for losing weight?
