Alhamdulillah, I am 47 today. Healthier and slimmer than I was 20 years ago. Haha, really. Ask my ex boss and my other friends. I was tall, big and well, on the over plump side before!! I have no qualms about getting old. No stress when I turned 40, nor any now. Age is just a number. Its your heart that determines who, what and how old you are :) I pray that God will bless me with long life, good health, love and happiness around me and that I get to see my children marry, live a good life and enjoy my grandchildren(s). Waiting for the time when a little cute voice will call me "Dadima".
I thank God for my husband, my children, family and my friends that's always there for me.
And, at 47 I am I am finally happy with my body. Hah! how many women can say that? That tummy bulge and the flabby arms that refuse to go away? I have since accepted them and move on in life with it, cant beat 'em, join 'em!! Its hard work trying to control your diet, not to gain weight, trying to reduce the huge thighs,toning up the chicken wing arms, trying to avoid wrinkles creep up your face, hide the veins in your hands ..the list goes on and on. I have come to a plateau and I am happy, I think I am pretty ok for a makcik. In my opinion lah. Can still strut in jeans/sneakers and tshirt, my favourite casual wear. Survived so far without any surgery, botox, injections, implants (eerrkk) expensive creams, facials, etc. Only my faithful Olay products. I might add fair & lovely, NOT! I am ok with me. I look forward for my big 5-0. Insyaallah. To age gracefully is so much easier than trying not to grow old LOL.
And I am going to continue my newfound passion, to run and have fun and make new friends. And get to have younger friends (some a good 20 years or more) which I believe will help me to feel young, hahah. This hobby also enables me to eat what I want as much as I want, no need to worry that the extra pound will creep back! An easy and cheap way to keep healthy. You should try. You will get addicted, trust me. And its a good healthy addiction.
My wish? that all my loved ones, family and friends will be blessed with long life, good health, happiness, love and all good things come your way. And may what you wished for will come true. And may you have the strength to face the challenges of life. Did I get my wish? Yeah some of them. Better some than none right? And I will be working hard towards achieving my dream to hold a full marathon medal in my hands before I turn 48, insyaallah!
Thank you all .. for the love, support, and just accepting me for what I am and who I am. I remain, faithfully, Bond, your one and only June Bond :0) God Bless You All. Amin.
