Pregnant I might have been able to laugh off, I'm 72. Had a little kid ask me "Are you fat or are you a woman? If his mama wasn't near I might have suggested he go play in traffic, but wouldn't 've able to live with,myself if that happened. Maybe he just didn't have" no upbringin' " as my grandma would say.

Looking down and well seeing Peter. Lol. Horse back riding with my daughter. Sailing with my son. Not being scared to climb into a shooting house thinking I’m going to crush it (happened once!). A passionate weekend with my wife!!!

Today I'm looking forward to:

Not feeling fat

Buying small clothes

Making people wonder how I did it

Seeing an old boyfriend by chance while looking all slim and gorgeous

Working out without a huge tshirt on to cover all my stuff

Wearing full seat riding breeches that fit and don't look like 10 pounds of sausage in a 9 pound bag

And a Big Amen from Me, I would love some pictures of me showing. a beautiful new covering where my old cracked turtleshell once was, faint- shades instead of vibrant and shining. I always suspected I would be pretty, charming and could rock the "senior set" on their heels. Cutie Pie is emerging out of a vanilla Big Mama. Is it too much to ask that I no longer look like someone's dowdy old Granny?

My double chin and belly to shrink, also my hunchback to disappear and my skin to lighten up. Overall just feeling comfortable and no pains.

Funny, I have always wanted some Glamour Shots myself, although at my "OMG You're Not Dead Yet?" age am I being foolish? You see, I may be feeling I have more right to them. Deep inside I have felt cool, competent and sexy all along, it just had SO FAR and so much to work through to surface out!

Society has poisoned women into thinking we have an expiration date, so I'm delighted to know that you think otherwise. Every line, wrinkle, or oddly-shaped blob is a badge with a worthy history. Think of all the people who never make it past their childhood or young adulthood or who die before their time. (I know you had a son, Kevin, who passed away; children should NEVER go before a parent; I have a son named Kevin, too, by the way... my youngest medical doctor.)

I am looking forward to:

  • My blood pressure being normal. Anxiety makes it rise and I know my weight doesn't help. I'm on medication for anxiety, but the weight doesn't help.
  • Horse-back riding! I've loved horses since I was a little girl and I've always wanted to learn how to ride.
  • Feeling stronger! When I lost 90lbs, I felt so much stronger and almost never out of breath.
  • Feeling cute / better self-esteem.
  • Buying cute clothes, being able to dress how I want to.
  • Having more respect in the workplace
