It's Here. It Really Is

Tuesday Truth - Ann Again and again

It started with the commercial for The Chillow.  A pillow that is chilled to "help you feel like you're in a cool oasis".  I saw that commercial and said, 'I'd like that'.  It was then that I fully realized the swirling thoughts in my head weren't just fleeting conversations with myself, they were my mind finally telling me what my body has been showing me for months.  The time had come.  Or, bet yet, the "change" had come.

It doesn't matter what age you are, it can happen in your 30's, 40's or 50's.  Your body says - Surprise! You're a walking furnace now!  Some moments you're going to be a comfortable temperature and some moments (for me now it's at night) you are going to be your own sauna.  

And everything you've heard, everything you've read is true.  Even though I've listened and read it's still so very weird to actually experience it.  Kind of like eating oysters.

For more than half my life I have been trying to get my flabby, huge, cellulite favoring butt to get in shape.  I have tried every exercise that has come about however, my back-side is what it is.  But here's the thing, the flab that has been appearing around my midsection is, by proportion, making my hiney look not as big.  Thanks menopausal mid-section weight gain!

Do I feel badly about my neck?  No.  No, not yet, thank you Nora Ephron.  (Rest In Peace lovely, talented lady.  And thank you.)  but I do feel badly when I'm sitting and the rolls on my stomach do just that.  I do my best to sit up straight as I can, without doing a back bend on the couch, and I still feel a layer of fat just... roll.  ugh.

I am here.  I am on this ride.  I have a great family, we love to laugh and they are a tremendous support.  

Now, where's that phone number for The Chillow?

  1. I feel your pain. Last Sunday I sat in church in my sleeveless sundress, fanning myself and hoping no one was noticing the sweat running down my face. I looked around at the elderly ladies and small children nearby and they were all shivering because we were right under the A/C vent. Huh. Guess it was just me. Being a woman is AWESOME! lol
