It’s Monday. You’ve decided you’re going to finally lose those post-menopausal pounds. Starting today, you’re going to eat better. You make a yummy salad and bring it to work for lunch. You vow to cut down on sweets and exercise for an hour three times a week.
Talking to the other women in our community, I’m convinced that simplifying your life is one of the best things that you can do in your 60s.
