Things That Change As We Age

So, I'm not exactly sure when it began happening- either after age 35, or maybe after pregnancy- but my body started changing.

Suddenly:

I was holding on to my weight and couldn't just starve myself for a week to lose five pounds.

I began having break-outs ( I was lucky enough not to have teen zits- so this was new for me).

I had to get re-fitted for a bra.

And- this was a biggie for me- my deodorant no longer worked! Suddenly there were huge sweat stains under my arms everyday and I began staying away from dark colored material, which screamed- Hello! I'm sweating!

So, I've had to change my exercise (yeah right, who am I kidding) and beauty routines.

And I found my knight in shining armor, below:



Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant. I cannot go a day without it!

Anyone else experience these kinds of changes?

Oh my yes! My skin drastically changed when I turned 30 this past year. It was as if a switch flipped and all of a sudden my normal to oily skin is now desert dry. Everything had to change - cleanser, make-up, etc. and I've even had to start seeing a dermatologist.

In the years after pregnancy and nursing I've gotten refitted for a bra several times and even still my boobs can't seem to decide on what size they want to be!

Sigh...yes. Completely. There are days I feel like the sweaty, pocked up shell of what I know I could be! I've wondered about that deodordant, too, and and definitely going to consider biting the bullet for it!

Ditto for me too. And I use the same exact deodorant ;)

My skin's been breaking out lately and for the first time ever--I've had problems with bloating and retaining water. So odd.

For sure! Seems like I have to add another 20 minutes of cardio to my workout for every year that passes ... otherwise, the weight just keeps coming on.

Ugh, I'm about to turn 31 and over the past year 5 extra pounds have found their way to my ass and I just can't get rid of them. I'm a gym junkie, so I probably need to try the whole starvation route. Being hungry makes me crabby.

That stuff is amazing. I used to use it all the time.

Never used to have love handles, sometimes wake up at night really hot - hope that doesn't make me menopausal!

I find it's all downhill after 25. : )

Alicia said...

tiffany said...

Ditto for the sweating - been thinking about drastic things like Botox but maybe I just need to try one of those deodorants! Another thing I've had happen in the last few months is much more disturbed sleep patterns. I thought I was too young for peri-menopause, but maybe not. Sigh.
