Have Your Contents Shifted After You Turned 50?

By on April 1, 2014

Have you ever heard a flight attendant ask the passengers to be cautious when opening the overheard compartments, as the contents may have shifted during the flight?

When I heard this on one of my trips to work with a client in another state, I immediately knew that this was the best way to explain how one day when I was around 49, I went to bed thinking I was looking good in my clothes and I was content with my body. The next morning I seemed to have awakened with rolls, bumps and bubbles that I swear were not there the night before.

How come the jeans and t-shirt I successfully wore the day before, now made me look old and out of shape. What happened????

Ladies, I am sorry to report that no matter how hard you exercise or how well you eat, our contents have shifted while we are flying thru our lives.

This is not a cause to grab an oxygen mask because you may now be hyperventilating. It just means that a few changes need to be made so as to accommodate our shift.

If rolls are obvious, then wear clothes that disguise and cover them up. If the shirt and pants you beautifully wore before, now expose ruffles and ridges in your waist and or thighs, then get them out of your closet and replace them with clothes that lay over the troublesome spots instead of clinging to them for dear life.

To keep this simple, consider this:

If you put on a piece of clothing, and parts of it are holding on as tight as a one year old with separation anxiety, then stop wearing it.

Go for a larger size, or a looser fit and embrace the fact that your contents have indeed shifted and stop beating yourself up over the inevitable change once over 40, 50, 60, 70, 80 and beyond.
