My mother called winter clothes camouflage clothing. Jeans and turtlenecks don’t tell your secrets. They mask those extra pounds: the arms, legs, and tummy that didn’t benefit from a resolution to start exercising this January.

I’m having trouble getting excited about the warmer temperatures predicted for this week: tomorrow we’re on target for a record high. I didn’t even think to pull out last summer’s tube of sunless tanning lotion until this weekend. Nothing makes you look more trim and toned than a pseudo-tan, right?

Why are we women so hard on ourselves? You would think I would have to actually do something wrong to feel this ashamed. Do men do this to themselves?

This week I start walking. Are you ready for warmer temperatures?
