What about item 31? How about some help and consolation for those of us reaching "that age".
It's not easy when brain says "I'm still young" but body says "Think again!"
I know that Nature thinks it's a good idea to add a layer of fat to my waistline and stomach but I don't.
Is it possible to exercise it away or am I stuck with it for ever? Can I keep some tone to my muscles (eg upper arms)or am I fighting a losing battle?
I want to keep on running into and through my 50s but at the moment it's a big struggle.
I know there are many articles in RW about motivation and I have read them. Perhaps they are all written by men who just don't realise the hold that hormones have over a body.
There must be many women who have struggled - please pass on some help, advice, encouragement!!
