At age 55, I am for the 1st time in my life worried about not being a 10. Or a 7 in looks! I was too manic/active when young to worry about that. I was a proud Nerd, happy to be "in with the out crowd." Loved Beat poets & offbeat people. I played flute in symphonic & jazz bands. Had a gallery opening at age 20. Lived all over the US/Africa. Travled to Iceland, the Orkneys, Salzburg. Active politically. Suddenly, I am angry that I didn't Flaunt it when young & gorgeous. This is SO stupid. I've been happily married 21 years to a great guy. Most people who meet me think I am 38 or 40. Why does it make any difference how someone looks? I gained 35 lbs. on meds. I need Rxs but hate the weight. I used to get ill, lose weight from mania. I just looked at photos I posted & it's absurd, I chose all (but one) where I looked Great. Like I want people to say "Boop Boop Dee Boop!" Whatever! Judy Dench is awesome & she ain't gorgeous. Blither blather.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
