A few months ago, I decided to get really serious about weight loss, partly because I was in the midst of writing a book on Menopause with a chapter titled “Losing the Meno-Pot Belly” and partly because I saw a photo of myself which forced me to confront the sad and true fact that I was fat. Yes, I am using the F word here, though if you prefer, we can sugar coat it a bit, I was overweight with a BMI hovering close to the obese zone. The photo was scary and I couldn’t blame it on bad lighting or the wrong angle. It didn’t matter what the atmospheric conditions or the angle of the camera or the sun, I was FAT.
I’ve been seeing a lot of women lately who are pre-diabetic. They have high fasting blood sugar levels, most have high triglycerides and are struggling to lose weight. Right now, I’m writing a book on Menopause and the chapter I just finished was about how to lose the Belly Fat.
Are your pants shrinking? Are you looking a pants with hidden elastic waist bands? Are loose fitting tunics all of a sudden an attractive option?
