My friend calls herself "Fatty"

Sexy Over 50 fatty photoI have a boomer friend (let's call her Maggie) who has a weight problem and certainly does not think she is sexy over fifty. Maggie sometimes calls herself "Fatty" and then chuckles. I know that her laughter is really covering up her hurt and pain. Maggie is a great big  loving woman and I am guessing because of some pain (her husband left her years ago for a younger woman and she lost a child to Luekemia) she has had in the past she has eaten and drunk alcohol to make herself feel good. Personally, I believe she has used food and alcohol to numb her pain.

Just recently, Maggie told me she's interested in meeting a man and wants to start dating. I suggested she shed a few pounds and we came up with a plan, so now she is on a path to a slimmer version of herself. And, it is fun and insightful to see her going through her process of becoming a more svelte version of herself. Maggie is wisely adapting new routines so that her body is getting what it wants and needs which is self love. She has shifted from a version of self-hate to this new version of self loving. As time progresses it will be rewarding to see her results unfold, her go on her first date and ultimately get her mojo back..

Women tend to be more forgiving when it comes to being overweight. We see a person's energy, we see their love, we see a person's essence. But men are not so forgiving. Men want to see and be with attractive women. So like my boomer friend Maggie who affectionately calls herself "Fatty" it may be your turn, your time to investigate why you have put on the pounds. Is it possible that you may be afraid of feeling? Afraid to let someone get close? While we're at it we can look at lifestyle and the level of activity that you have in your life. Are the calories "in" more abundant than you need? 

I had a boyfriend a number of years ago, we were at a picnic where there were a majority of single over 50 women...and most were over-weight. We talked about this and almost had a fight regarding the topic. I thought it was very superficial that men would disregard a woman based on her weight...but he adamantly argued that it's just a truth. He took it even further and told me that many baby boomer woman make FOOD their new boyfriend...yikes...what a comment! 

If Sexy Over 50 is the goal and if we want to attract men...what is the healthiest relationship we can have with food? Personally,  I want to be friends with food it nourishes me, but, we've taken it too far when we let food literally and figuratively into our bed.

Food for thought...and, no sexy over 50 pun intended!

    Well, there you go...I'm actually glad to hear THAT! Guess there's hope for me and all plus-size ladies..but, there still is the health factor...my physician said carving off a few of my "extra" pounds would be in my best interest. Rats...because I do love chocolate brownies!!!!

    I just might be a rare specimen...59 years old, retired public school educator, never married/pregnant etc. I know how this woman feels. Being overweight isn't fun. Especially if you have had to battle the bulge since childhood. As I read this, I wondered if this lady is an Endomorph somatotype. Endomorphs have slow metabolisms. They are prone to be fat because their bodies don't handle obvious sugars and fats well. I should know because I am one. Never have I ever worn a bikini or have been able to show my midsection (that was my sister). Also, I have been in and out of gyms since the early 1980's. Presently, I am beginning CrossFit. Brutal? Yep! In addition to that I take dance classes and the hot yogas. Restorative yoga is what I am shooting for. I have knee issues because I fell on them twice in the mid 2000's. The MRI revealed I had arthritis in my left knee. Tell you this, I am not about slowing down. The instructors for CrossFit as well as the participants are young enough to be my sons and daughters. There are modifications because I have informed them of how old I am and my knees. So there you have it. One would think I should be skinny as a rail. It doesn't work that way genetically as I have found out from doing my homework on the internet. :p until next time.
