He goes on to talk about his personal experience losing weight. It just seems to me that as we grow old we should not have to deal with weight loss. What kind of creator would do that? One that doesn't like women? Women can really add the pounds as the years add up. Women also have a harder time losing weight than men. Not fair.
At this stage in my life the body has a significant amount of droop. There are wrinkles hanging around also. I've spent almost 75 years playing yo-yo on the bathroom scales, and now the doctor wants me to lose weight. Bummer.
I no longer dream of a body that would attract Donald Trump. I'm more concerned about having a body that works. I'm fortunate that my body has no major problems. A little weight loss and exercise would put me in a very good place.
There's a problem though, I could care less about losing weight. It's hard to lose weight when you're motivated and almost impossible when you're not. By this age in life you have to be careful how much weight you lose or you will very quickly begin to look like your own grandmother. Not the look I was hoping for.
Looking at this picture I believe I can make the argument I am not genetically inclined to have a firm body. I see a lot of droop there on grandma. She has a fallen look, gravity has taken its toll.
While I have no desire to look like my grandmother I must face the truth that losing weight is not actually going to improve my looks a lot, my health, maybe, but looks, no.
How are you dealing with the weight issue as you age?
