The so called beautiful people you see in the magazines and on tv don’t really exist in reality. Think about the last time you actually saw one of these beautiful people on the street. The old time Japanese way for long lifeNov 25, 2020 at 10:59pmwith most of the population living in good health to the age of 100 plus is: 腹八分目 (Hara Hachi Bu) translating as "never fill your stomach more than 80% full." Of course back then they also didn't have McCorporation shoving McGrease and McChemi down our throats. Me tooNov 25, 2020 at 11:50pmI caught my reflection by accident in a mirror at the pool. My first thought was, who's that fat, miserable old woman?! I was absolutely shocked when I realized it's me. In my head, I was still thin, cute and 25, lol. So I avoid mirrors now - I'd rather be delusional! @Me tooNov 26, 2020 at 7:46amLol, Same Same! Although I'm in my 40's so I'm not being too hard on myself about the old. Not too lateNov 26, 2020 at 9:26amI wish I 53 again. Seems like yesterday I was riding 20 k a day on my bike, working out, looked great. I'm in my late sixties now and didn't get fat, but it's hard to do anything too challenging physically without paying for it (arthritis). So it's all maintenance now, long walks, light weights, but no power lifting or anything too competitive. Even swimming messes me up. So go for it while you can. Women in their fifties can look awesome! CatNov 26, 2020 at 9:46amBe gentle with yourself and as regards to you being "fat",it's never too late to start exercising.Start slow,walking is great and the health benefits are amazing. Survey Says.Nov 26, 2020 at 6:31pmFifty three? Lucky you. I was eight and went damn who beat that ugly kid up. Twice.Then my parents informed me that I don't have a deaf mute twin brother just a full length mirror. heyNov 28, 2020 at 2:54amYou are okay.Your post resonated with me so much. Maybe it's not about your reflection in the mirror that you see as 'fat and ugly" maybe you are just looking at all the failed attempts, not having achieved what you promised yourself with, and comparing yourself with the younger version of you.I just want to give you a virtual hug. Try being gentle with yourself, and remind the things abkut you that you love. Tell yourself what you want to hear from your loving partner.
