With MH's birthday round the corner and mine approaching too, I just can't believe that I will be 44 soon. I honestly feel as though I am only 34 where did the last ten years go

I like to look in my Lebo mirror...it tells me I am 28...lol
but seriously...I feel better about myself and the way I look than ever before, and when I look at pics from say 10 years ago, I am not longing to look like that again...
I do wonder how long this good feeling will last, the thought of turning 50 doesn't exactly fill me with happiness...

If I lost some weight I would feel way better about myself, but I am happier as a person. I am dreading hitting 50 I have to say
