To Me......today I don't feel older, just better..
What a dress!!
My girlfriend called me and said “turn on the television; turn on the People Choice Awards.” As I am trying to turn to the show and not miss my Law and Order, she is still talking about how great Halle looks in this dress. Finally, I see her, and the dress. She does look stunning. I remember a time when I would have look like that too. As a matter of fact I still have many pictures of me with head turning dresses on my body. Yep, I had and I say that with a little envy, had a great body like Halle. I lost that in my early thirties more than ten years ago. To pull off wearing a dress like this you can’t have any excess weight because this glove-fitting dress will definitely tell everyone were your flab problems are.
Now I feel sorry for Star Jones. Most people would love to have a body like Halle. They will do plenty of things for it. They take all kinds of pills, surgery, stop eating, and throwing up after every meal, all with the desire to look great. But even surgery can’t promise you a body like Halle because excessive weight loss means excessive skin. With that much skin that has to be removed you might end up with scars everywhere. I wondered does Star regret the weight loss surgery she had? She doesn’t look happy even smiling to me and the make-up and stuff she has to cover herself in just look weird. I'm sure she is much healthier at the lesser weight, but the cost to pay for health and slimness is sometimes too high. Still, I'm sure Star did the right thing for her and that's all that count.
But for me, I’ll just keep eating healthy and trying to get in walks and exercising to be healthy and to lose excess weight.
