For over a year I have been writing a blog called Golden Years Revisited.  The name I chose for my domain was cultivating dignity.  I have finally accepted the reality that if I am trying to promote dignity in the world at large, it is also important for me to be willing to look at myself and the ways in which I do not treat myself with dignity.  And so….

This site is my attempt to deal successfully with an issue that has plagued me most of my life.  I know there are many others who struggle to create a healthy relationship with food, their physical self and wrestle with social expectations of how they “should” look.

I don’t know if writing about this will help me or anyone else.  But I hope so.  Please feel free to comment, give advice, and share ideas.

Thank you for going on this journey with me.

  1. I have run the gamut of too skinny to too fat and everything in between. I was never happy with my body even as a six three. Now at something between a 16 and a 20 depending upon the make I have finally made peace with myself. It took diabetes and a couple of heart attacks to do it for me. I would never wish EITHER on any other living soul, so I encourage people to eat appropriately and throw away that damned scale. it just reinforces negative thoughts, which reinforce negative behavior. Instead..eat whatever you want…in MODERATION. Get off your rear end I tell myself daily and DO something. Even if it is just to walk around the outside of the house. Life is so much better when we can just BE instead of the constant striving and self-flagellation for breaking a “diet’.
