    This is such a good post. What an interesting observation and great way to think about it. I don’t shower at the gym though! I’m definitely in the age of self-consciousness. grin

    I can’t wait to reach that age of being comfortable with myself. Sadly, it didn’t magically happen when I turned 30 this year.  grin

    sooooo true. the old woman walk around our locker room naked, while i change in the shower.

  • September 24, 2008

    Here you are learning the lesson, meanwhile I’ve been going to our YMCA for the last month ducking in and out of the lockerroom learning to prepare myself to be assualted by the site of a couple of naked old ladies and always shocked by how confident they are.

    It didn’t occur to me that I should learn something from them. When I change there I live in fear that someone will come in while I’m ducking from the shower to a bathroom stall, trying not to get my clothes wet or whatever.

    You are so much smarter than me.

    GO YOU!  Yeah and ummm I totally envy the women who bare all without a thought in the locker room.  I am so not there!

    I am so gonna make my arms look like that!
    I was trying to get together a very similar post the other week but you’ve beaten me to it!

    Yep! Something does happen at middle age.  The magic of being comfortable in my own skin is something that I wouldn’t trade for anything in the whole world.  I am enjoying my own internal Divaliciousness.  I wish this for everyone.  Thank you for sharing - Nards

    I wonder when this kicks in??  I need me some.  But wait…. first I need to figure out what this “gym” place is…

    nice biceps, girlfriend! when I saw there was a photo coming at the end of this post, I was afraid

  • September 25, 2008

    Ha ha ha…we just joined the “Y”, too and I was just coming to a similar conclusion. I’m just glad when I was in the hot tub all the other women were wearing suits…my hubs reports that in the men’s room, most were au naturale!

    WHAT? That should totally be illegal. I mean, naked junk in a tub together? That’s considered outlaw in most states. wink

    My husband and I were married for 2 YEARS before I let even considered letting him see me naked. I know, I’m weird like that. For all my talk about flashing my bewbs, I’m hopelessly shy about my body and could never walk around half-dressed in a locker room full of strangers. Well, there was that one time I flashed my neighbors, but that was an accident. I swear.

    Holy pipes Batman - nice guns! And because it’s football season - wishing LB a super awesome 4th bday (early!)

  • September 26, 2008

    ya know if i had arms like that I’d be walking around the Y in the buff.

    but I dont so I’ll be the one with the towel in the corner.

  • September 26, 2008

    I wish I could be comfortable in my own skin like those older ladies. I’m definitely not. Hell, I don’t even like to see myself in the mirror!

  • September 26, 2008

    It is so nice. I am almost fifty and I am finally comfortable in my skin.
