Update

After yesterday's post, I feel like I need to answer a few burning questions.
  • My menopot is that fatty area that starts right below the bustline and extends to just above the kneecaps.  If you were one of those who had to ask me, then you must know that I hate you.
  • I used to get allergy shots twice a week, and now I only have to go every three or four weeks.  They are really helping me.
  • I was able to get home last night to my magnifying mirror and become one with my tweezers.  It felt so good.
  • I slept like a lamb in my nice bed.

Glad the allergy shots are working for you. They only made my allergies worse, but that is probably because the doctor was seriously 85 and was using medical treatments developed when he graduated from medical school.

Not only was I glad to hear the shots are helping but I am really glad you slept like a lamb in your own bed. Nothing better than a good nights sleep. Here's to many more.
Hey by the way OU is a really good school, and good football. Come look at it and I will meet up with you and show you around. Go Sooners!

Sorry, lisaj, MU rocks harder! Go Mizzou!

Hey there LaLa - my mother just told me the hair situation grows exponentially as we grow older. Just thought I'd give you something to look forward to.
That's what friends are for! ;-)

Consider yourself lucky: my menopot starts under my chin. I just didn't know it had a name other than I HATE GETTING OLD.

Daryl said...

I am SO laughing .. I had a pot belly for most of my younger adult life .. then right around the time peri-menopause slammed me my metabolism woke up .. more then likely due to dealing with sick/dying parents who passed w/in 3 mos of each other ...

And if you are able to take HRT do it ... it helps with the menopot AND those nasty hairs ... do you have a Tweezerman?

Referencing your monopot, I have divided that part of my body into two sections. The upper being the 'muffin top' and the lower resembling something similar to cottage cheese or hail damage.

Mental P Mama said...

Daryl, my Tweezerman and I are one.
Employee, Hail Damage is the best explanation. Ever.

Unlike Daryl(let's all give her a resounding phfffffffftt) my pot belly aka menopot did not go away at the onset of menopause.
In fact it has grown to unmanageable proportions.
Stand up and cheer for Spanx everyone.

I wasn't going to ask about the menopot. I'm glad I didn't. I thought it had something to do with sinuses but LOL that's the Netipot!!

I'm glad you're home in your nice bed after the tweezathon!

My menopot area, which goes from my upper lip to my ankle bones, has never looked that great but menopause really did it in. All the hair that used to grow on my legs has totally relocated itself to my chin. I do not have one single hair on either leg, which fascinates me. Not that I can SEE that area over my belly, mind you....but I can feel that its hairless. I keep tweezers and a mirror in every room of the house. I'm especially impressed with the coarse black one inch long hairs that magically seem to appear overnight on the chin area. Sigh...now I'm noticing more and more coarse WHITE hairs. This does prove that God does have a sense of humor. Glad your allergies are better! Cheers.

i really really hope i didn't ask. i'm just really wanting to be liked right now. no hating the ignorant in wales, please.

As the proud owner of my own menopot, I required no explanation.

I'm glad the shots are helping. I used to think lucky people had the kind of asthma that shots would help... now I understand that any kind of asthma sucks. Bad.

Suz Broughton said...

Glad to hear you are better and tweezed.

I think it is better to sleep like a lamb than a baby. I don't think babies sleep well at all...

Apparently, I was a twin that was separated at birth, and her name is Golden to Silver Val! And, oh, Mr. Tweezerman; let me count the ways in which I love thee!

Notice I did not have to ask about menopot at all. Here's what I have to say about it. My much-younger person body was just fine; kinda spare-parts-ish, but also kinda cute. Now? A sphere with arms and legs. Short legs. Not a huge demand for this body type. Le sigh. My lot is life right now is to make OTHERS feel better about their bodies. :)

On that note...happy weekend!

there's no place like home, there's no place like home. (especially after vacationing with 5 boys. Well, 6 if you count the dh )

Sassy said...

Bless your heart...thank goodness they have the shots than can help you and if it makes you feel better I have a menopot as well...it seriously sucks!

noble pig said...

To your knees? No!

Egghead said...

Don't get me going on menopot. My sister once said to me all she wanted to do was to be able to sit on the toilet and see her pubic hair when she looked down once again. She thought it was a small request that God should be able to fulfill. I told her that Satan won out on that one...;)
