I don’t often pay much attention to celebrity columns, particularly when it comes to trying to find weight loss motivation. I simply don’t feel that I can relate with their lifestyles or the resources they have to meet their goals. I respect many of them – don’t respect many of them – and wish them well in their ventures, but they don’t tend to have much of an impact on my own life.
I’ve worked on weight control and immune system strength, and now to further tweak what I’m eating, I’m adjusting for an environmentally friendly diet. The climate disaster the planet is facing isn’t just the result of younger generations. Mine definitely played its part. Now, it’s my turn to play my part again, only in reducing the worsening of the planet I will be leaving behind.
Only one in 20 women above middle age get enough exercise for their health, according to a study I just finished reading with my morning coffee. That has me feeling a bit deflated. We’ve got to do better for ourselves! It only gets harder from here (medically speaking), and we’re not doing ourselves any favors by skipping the basic lifestyle steps we need to care for ourselves and ensure our best quality of life as we age.
