First I want to say HAPPY NEW YEAR to every one!!! I want to say so much but i feel i’m not a writer. Anyways since i turned 40 everything started changing in my life. But i didn’t recognized what it was. I worry about weight even though i’d never been over weight. I worry about wrinkles. I look in the mirror for all the changes. I’m very, very moody. No hot flashes yet. But then i was thinking today why worry about the inevitable. I’m gonna try to make the best of it. Enjoy my life. Enjoy my wisdom. Because if we think about it we are so different now. Mature, intelligent and confident. Something i didn’t have when i was on my twenties. And yet sometimes i want to go back to that age. But why? What is it about the 20 that i want? The youth?...I don’t know because honestly I feel more sexy and with less inhibition that when i was younger. Its like some days I’m ok being 48. But some other day i hate it so much that i can cry. My mom said to me after you are over with menopause then you are gonna feel so great. I’m really looking forward for that. Meanwhile I’m gonna have to keep walking thru this dark woods because i know that the meadow its close.

    • Amen! Many of us are walking through those same woods right along beside you - me included. I’m very happy that menopause has an end and I, too, look forward to it. It’s what keeps me going through this time.

      Thank you for sharing!

Need to exercise, no just get lipo, facelift, no just botox, aches and pains, exercise, no just get to the plastic surgeon.....I am crazy about this now..... I so want to look like I use too, whenever that was??????? Damn I just need Chocolate that fixes everything!!estaticestaticestaticestatic

    • Ok, Ok, I’ll send you chocolate!LOLestatic

      Esther, I’ve met you in person, you‘re gorgeous!!

      That being said, we, as women want to look our best and see ourselves age and - it’s HARD! I hate looking into the mirror and seeing what I’ve become since I started menopause.

      I’m giving you my two cents since we know one another. exercise first and then explore the other options to enhance your looks further if you decide to. But go for the exercise first, my friend!

      And you know that this comes from a loving place.estatic
