I just wanted to write to say thanks for talking about Finess on your blog. I’ve been following you for a while and I really appreciate you addressing issues that effect us post-50 women. I’m 52 and have been working out seriously for about 10 years. At first I was doing Tae Kwon Do and kickboxing and I would have to stop drinking several hours before class in order not to have stress incontinence problems during class. It was never more than a liner could handle but I was self conscious and worried that others might notice. It also meant I couldn’t go ‘full-out’ like I wanted to. The problem improved a lot as I lost weight and go into better shape but never really went away. After my kickboxing teacher moved away I had to find a new workout solution. Now I’m doing zumba and loving it but as soon as we start jumping (and we do a lot of it!) I would start to worry and have to dial it down a bit. I took advantage of the sample that you mentioned and it was a game changer! I was able to do all the jumping jacks etc without any problems. Thanks again for talking about this – I’m mostly a blog reader, not a commenter, but wanted to let you know what an impact this has had on my quality of life.
Thanks Margaret…for the testimony, for reading and for supporting what goes on here at over50feeling40!
