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?
