I am really feeling my age this week.
No longer a party animal (can't stay up late)
No more break dancing (do they even do that anymore)
Limited alcohol consumption (I think cough syrup hits my quota now)
Legs still look sexy (as long as they are stuffed in my orthopedic hose)
So I started to ponder.. when did all of this change happen AND
If I could turn back the clock.. what age would I like to be again??
Yes, I have allot of quiet evening time (hospital jaunts give you that).
And I start to reflect on days when I really could do it all, and WAS that super woman.
You know, bring home the bacon, fry it up in the pan....all that crap.
But somewhere along the way, the superwoman symbol started to peel off my chest.
And now the things that thrill me are getting an extra week out of my hair color touch up.
Getting out of bed and having only one knee squeak.
A good BM.
Actually remembering where I put my keys..
Sad.. I know.. but this is what time, age and just getting friggin older does to you..
BUT... I have to say weight loss does pull back some of those years off of the table.
Like I said.. some days only one knee squeaks AND
It is so much easier to squeeze into something and not dread if putting on a winter coat on top of a sweater is going to make me look like the Michelin Tire Man..
So I will take all the youth that Weight Loss wants to toss my way..
You know what Maybe I do feel a few years younger after all!
