Here's the latest fashion scandal: Michelle Obama is being seen sleeveless.

Wow! I'm glad that with just the minor problems of the economy, world peace and starvation, the fashion police can bring something really serious to our attention.

I imagine the response to this will be so heated that some of the posts might have to be deleted. Just be forewarned.

(Now my going sleeveless would be something to really fuss about! As my 10 year old grandson told me: Grandma did you know you have a lot of old loose skin on your arms?)

I'd give anything if my arms were that big.

Hey, the journalists aren't smart enough to understand the issues more than superficially.

So they present something they almost understand.

Hey! I change my entire wardrobe whenever I read what Michelle is wearing. It affects my entire day...sleeveless was a bad day. 8oI

That one is colon dash capital D it's the best we've got for a laugh.

Smile is just colon close parentheses. Or you could pop out the emoticon screen and C&P.

Sleeveless doesn't leave my HOUSE!

I go sleeveless & say be damned to those who don't like my fat, saggy arms

That's my last bit of vanity and I'm not ready to let go.

You know I just like to feel the Sun on my skin, Donna, even when I'm sun-burning my already rashy swollen arms I never claimed to be too bright

My son is getting married in May and my dress is strapless. I DO NOT have the guns that Michelle Obama has. I keep putting off the inevitable exercise that I know I need to won't stop me from wearing the dress or having the time of my life though!!!

Nothing wrong with a little arm waddle.

No one has seen my arms in about 30 years.

Andy, I don't think I have enough years left to get rid of the "old loose skin on my arms" even if I started lifting weights right now.
(As if that's going to happen!)

I'd like to have zippers installed. That'd make the plastic surgery so much cheaper.

Got to admit girl is built! Nice arms, but let's see how she looks in 20 years.

I went to Bingo last night with a bag full of candy bars. I yelled, "Who wants a free candy bar?" Six ladies lifted off and levitated for over a minute. Two of them actually man actually managed to fly a lap around the parlor.

Go to the Gym???

not me....especially after i just read this that SIL sent to me...


This is dedicated to everyone who ever attempted to get into a regular workout routine.

Dear Diary,
For my birthday this year, my daughter (the dear) purchased a week of personal training at the local health club for me. Although I am still in great shape since being a high school football cheerleader 43 years ago, I decided it would be a good idea to go ahead and give it a try.

I called the club and made my reservations with a personal trainer named Belinda, who identified herself as a 26-year-old aerobics instructor and model for athletic clothing and swim wear.

My daughter seemed pleased with my enthusiasm to get started! The club encouraged me to keep a diary to chart my progress.

Started my day at 6:00 a.m. Tough to get out of bed, but found it was well worth it when I arrived at the health club to find Belinda waiting for me. She is something of a Greek goddess - with blond hair, dancing eyes and a dazzling white smile. Woo Hoo!! Belinda gave me a tour and showed me the machines. I enjoyed watching the skillful way in which she conducted her aerobics class after my workout today. Very inspiring! Belinda was encouraging as I did my sit-ups, although my gut was already aching from holding it in the whole time she was around. This is going to be a FANTASTIC week-!!

I drank a whole pot of coffee, but I finally made it out the door. Belinda made me lie on my back and push a heavy iron bar into the air then she put weights on it! My legs were a little wobbly on the treadmill, but I made the full mile. Belinda's rewarding smile made it all worthwhile. I feel GREAT!! It's a whole new life for me.

The only way I can brush my teeth is by laying the toothbrush on the counter and moving my mouth back and forth over it. I believe I have a hernia in both pectorals. Driving was OK as long as I didn't try to steer or stop. I parked on top of a GEO in the club parking lot.

Belinda was impatient with me, insisting that my screams bothered other club members. Her voice is a little too perky for that early in the morning and when she scolds, she gets this nasally whine that is VERY annoying. My chest hurt when I got on the treadmill, so Belinda put me on the stair monster. Why the heck would anyone invent a machine to simulate an activity rendered obsolete by elevators? Belinda told me it would help me get in shape and
enjoy life. She said some other crap too.

Belinda was waiting for me with her vampire-like teeth exposed as her thin, cruel lips were pulled back in a full snarl. I couldn't help being a half an hour late - it took me that long to tie my shoes. Belinda took me to work out with dumbbells. When she was not looking, I ran and hid in the restroom. She sent another skinny witch to find me.Then, as punishment, she put me on the rowing machine -- which I sank.

I hate that witch Belinda more than any human being has ever hated any other human being in the history of the world. Stupid, skinny, anemic, anorexic little cheerleader. If there was a part of my body I could move without unbearable pain, I would beat her with it.

Belinda wanted me to work on my triceps. I don't have any triceps! And if you don't want dents in the floor, don't hand me the stupid barbells or anything that weighs more than a sandwich. The treadmill flung me off and I landed on a health and nutrition teacher.. Why couldn't it have been someone softer, like the drama coach or the choir director?

Belinda left a message on my answering machine in her grating, shrilly voice wondering why I did not show up today. Just hearing her voice made me want to smash the machine with my planner; however, I lacked the strength to even use the TV remote and ended up catching eleven straight hours of the Weather Channel. I'm having the Church van pick me up for services today so I can go and thank GOD that this week is over. I will also pray that next year my daughter (the little brat) will choose a gift for me that is fun -- like a root canal or a hysterectomy. I still say if God had wanted me to bend over, he would have sprinkled the floor with diamonds!!!

Very entertaining writing.

However, I have never gone the personal trainer route or spent much time on those boring machines.

I do go to exercise classes and enjoy myself, just to stay in shape.

You have to proceed gradually and you have to choose those activities which for you are enjoyable.

Properly done you will feel better and have more energy AFTER exercise.

Thanks for the best morning belly laugh I've had in ages.

Good exercise, laughing.
