The easiest way to avoid regrets is to ask yourself this question, "If not now, when?" It's a powerful way to put life and our decisions about how we spend our time into perspective"
I had a tiny fit neighbor once that lost her husband in her 50s. In her 60s this really great man kept trying to get her to go out with him. She would only go on dinner dates but discouraged anything more, even though she really liked him. I asked her why once that if she liked him so much and they seemed such kindred spirits that she kept him from getting close. She replied that after 60 she was ashamed of the way her skin and other things just hung down. She said she could not imagine getting intimate with anyone again. She had never had an ounce of excess fat and exercised a lot. I don't think it is just a problem with women who lose weight. Think about it though. Most men don't look too great after 60 either and some of their favorite parts shrink or hide. They also usually don't see as well as they used to and they don't like being alone so I don't think they would mind a partner that is not perfect.
