My Mom,my 3 sisters,& me were always beautiful & looked younger than our ages. Folks always thought Mom was our sister. We were slender with lovely figures & beautiful faces.
Mom recently sent me a DVD of me throughout the years,along with my sons & husband. I’d had forgotten how beautiful I had been. My 3 sisters & me could’ve been models.
At age 31 I married an abusive man. By time I hit my early forties I gave up on myself…was an alcoholic & chain smoker. I stopped wearing make up & the weight piled on,until I was 240 pounds,with a scroungy complexion,& knotted hair. There’s much more,but shame won’t let me share that. I will say…at 52…I have no wrinkles & my natural hair color.
