      Don't you think life is one big conspiracy people never let you in on the bad stuff......?
      When you're pregnant they say oh the endorphins' kick in and you forget the pain after and you have a beautiful baby – yeah when do they kick in when you're delirious with pain and you have called all the medical staff every name under the sun and your partner well ....... let's not go there.
      You get to 30 with not a line on your face and on your 30th birthday you think okay getting older is not that bad ...... 30 and two days and you see some small crow's feet or "laughter lines" and they just keep on coming and then the hair it either starts to go grey or you find more and more of the dam stuff growing everywhere chin, etc;
      Forties people say the best time of your life and you'll enjoy it.... So much to look forward to but what they don't say is after you have scoffed your 40th birthday cake and finished of the champagne a carbohydrate must never pass your lips ........NEVER.
      Carb's are the enemy of the 40+ woman they stick like glue to your hips , your breast, your belly, your ribs , your ass ........like every bit of pasta, potatoes', bread, rice and cake is welded to your body.
      I never understood "a moment in your mouth forever on your hips" till now.....
      I have now told my daughter it's like telling your child there is no Santa or tooth fairy but I feel she needs to know.
      So now I know Carb's are the enemy why do I lust after lasagne, mashed potatoes, crisps........

        • Stoopid carbs, anyway! These are true facts-also, when you hit forty, if you wear glasses you will need bifocals.

        • It’s hard to be Italian and in my 40’s. I was raised on Pasta and now when I eat just a little bit of it I feel all bloated. I’m not a big meat eater but I find that I have to choose a lean source of protein and eat more of it. Protein seems to be the friend of the over 40 woman. Fruit and veggies have never been an issue for me - I eat lots of those. And ice water helps with the hot flashes so I’m drinking a lot of it.

          We’ll all help one another through this transition in our lives.

        • One thing that has been really difficult for me at this juncture of my life is combining 30 pounds of extra weight with hot flashes and living in a warm climate. If I had any idea how bad my hot flashes were going to be I would have stayed as underweight as possible to prepare for this. It compounds the discomfort. Then living in Hawaii and having an extremely hot summer and fall even in the upcountry where I live - I’m pretty darn uncomfortable. I’ve been living on ice water.
