ďAlthough Life Begins@Sixty targets a specific audience of older women, in my late twenties and as Joanís editor, I saw myself and the way I have been struggling with my weight problems since childhood reflected in each of Joanís characters. It was almost like reliving my entire life and a wake-up call. The strength of this book lies in relating to the kind of deep-down feelings and challenges we women face every day: taking up the treadmill yet another time or eating a decadent hunk of chocolate because there was no hope. It was comforting to know that I am not alone.
Life Begins@Sixty is not just for women over sixty. Itís for every woman who has bought new clothes because the old didnít fit any longer. Itís for every woman who has been on every single diet on earth. Itís for every woman who knows she has to get out there and start living better but just hasnít been able to.
Because she has been there, Joan Frentz is somebody who intuitively knows the problems that women face. Her life is an inspiration to all the women who hurt and who want to lose weight, and most importantly, take pride in being a woman. If this book doesnít get you out there exercising and taking control of your life, nothing ever will. I dragged my husband to the tennis courts twice yesterday. Twice. Itís not easy. And I donít know how long I can motivate myself. But whenever in doubt, I go back to Joanís book. If Life Begins@Sixty doesnít get you out there exercising and taking control of your life, nothing ever will.Ē
