Would really like to join this group of over-50 Divas! After 55, my weight has crept up every year and now I weigh more than ever before. The scales don't tell the whole story but my body shape sure does. I was the one they called "bird legs" from elementary school through college, and the rest of my body matched. As the decades have passed my legs are actually the nicest feature about me (if only I had only known that through all the brotherly teasing it wouldn't have warped me so much). But today my middle is bigger than my chest (which now is a big chest) and no skirt or pant on the market, that will fit my waist, fits anywhere else. And the middle just keeps getting bigger and bigger. When I realized after Thanksgiving that I could no longer "suck in my stomach" (nuh-uh, not a fraction) decided I had to do something about this or I would have nothing to wear to work. Silhouette goal is to go from an Apple (with 4 toothpicks sticking out) to at least a Rectangle.
Anyone out there find there middle unmanageable after 55? Wonder if weight loss alone will help?
