Dear Asmuch....

My heart goes out to you as well. I am 50...pushing 51. i am a bit on the chunky side, but am trying very hard to get it under control.

I know what you mean about getting older and almost resenting it that you are not in your 20's anymore...or my 30's for that matter. Actually it may be, that what i really want is to have known in my 20's and 30's what I know today and still be young. What an advantage that would have been! We would have "wowed" our worlds wouldn't we?

I honestly feel your pain. I have always questioned by sex appeal...my attractiveness...my allure, if you will.` And now with menopause setting in, and wrinkles appearing, I knew I had to do something to pull myself from the brink of depression.

What did I do? 1. I started walking. Yep...got those endorphones going...love those things! 2. Got silk wrap for my nails. I a cannot tell you how much that has helped. (my hands feel sexy) 3. Got a change of hair style. Told the beautician if she could make me look 10 years younger i would give her a bigger tip! It worked! 4. Started using a product on my face called Cell-X. It really has taken away the fine lines. Took a while, but worth every penny I paid for it. (and it wasn't cheap) 5. And probably the most important....LOTS of POSITIVE self talk. I would not let myself say negative in front of the mirror.

Dr. Phill...has also been a big help.

Asmuch....if you can...make a plan. It doesn't have to be a major thing. Just a little at a time. Don't give up on you yet. You are still young...take advantage.

And keep talking! YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

Libby
