I'M GOING TO STOP !....

Hello I hope you are all keeping well ! , what am I going to stop getting upset about my body !!!.
I am getting so fed up with myself for getting so down about my changing body that goes with the menopause . I have never been body confident since my teens and lately it's been getting worse . I have finally decided to love this body of mine , yes I not super slim but this body has given me six beautiful children and I might add I was not planning to have six children !, but life a funny old thing and sometimes your life does not always go to plan. This body has got me through skin cancer  ,if you have noticed in my pictures I have a round dent the front of my right shin . At 52 years old it's time for me to move on from the worrying and fretting that's been going on with me , I am going to wear what I like and stuff the fashion rule book saying what I should wear for my height ,shape, etc etc and just enjoy wearing what I want ,I will never be outrageous in my clothes because that's just not me , but I am going embrace my body and ageing I know it's going to be hard and there will be days where the doubts will creep in ! but I will give myself a good talking too and read all the inspiring blogs to help me on my way !!! and here are a few ....  Betty @ Pamper and Curves , Magdi @ Szafa Pomyslow , Vix @ Vintage Vixen and Curtise @ The Second Hand Years , Thank you for being just inspiring !!! Have a good week and thank you for your visits and comments .
All clothes and bag charity shopped , Shoes old.

  1. Les, you're a gorgeous woman. I don't think there's a woman on this earth who is truly happy with their body, it's all about accepting what you have and enjoying life. As you say your body has borne 6 kids and survived a horrible disease, that really is a beautiful thing!
    Love that tooled leather bag and that rich burgundy dress. xxx

  6. I'm so happy to read this resolution of yours, I just feel the strong emotion behind it. You ARE beautiful! Love who you are! I know, it's not always easy, but just be kind to yourself, be patient with yourself, be gentle as you are gentle with a beloved baby. I don't think there is anything more important than to accept and love, and it all starts with ourselves. This outfit is awesome, I love the combination of deep red and fresh white. xxxxxx

  7. Firstly - you look great, love the dress.
    Secondly - hurray! That is a great resolution to make for yourself. I'm only a year younger than you, so I can appreciate what you feel about ageing and your body changing. Yet I had more insecurities when I was younger (despite being thinner, having fewer wrinkles, etc) so I'm not sure age is the only issue here. I think you do just have to decide that you're going to make the best of what you have, appreciate your body, and dress it well - no one else's opinions matter. You're here, you're healthy and beautiful - enjoy it! xxxx
