Yoga pants, maybe. Thongs, ick.

I guess I don't see the point, unless it is the above!
You asked what is the point of thongs or expressed that you didn't see the point of thongs, so I said a couple things about what the point is of wearing thongs. :^) I was just responding to your statement yesterday about you not seeing the point of thongs, and now you've brought it up again today! (which is no problem)

In other words, I am no longer as concerned with even trying to look good. There are three reasons for this: First, the thinner I am, the older my skin looks; second, it is hard to be motivated now when I look old no matter what I do or how much I weigh; and third, as I am finding fewer and fewer things I enjoy doing now, it is difficult for me to say No to desserts and snacks and seconds if I feel hungry. In short, my motivation to even try to look "attractive" is completely shot.

Do any of you feel this way? And if not, how do YOU stay motivated to be as attractive as you can be?
I've also aged but I'm going down fighting every inch of the way, not that I can ever look 20 again but I want to be the best I can be. I'm thinner and I used to think the same thing as you but then after dong some reading I learned some can be due to dehydration. One of the most important thing I learned is hydration, hydration, hydration.That and taking care of my skin I "feel much better" than when I started to let go.

I was always thin but suddenly started to gain weight. I guess it caught up to me. Fortunately I didn't gain a whole lot and dropped weight when I started drinking water and fruit infused water. The fruit infused water is good and there are a lot of recipes online, my fav is watermelon, berries cut up an put in water and add a couple sprigs of mint. I eat anything I want for sweet cravings but mostly I don't crave chocolate, cookies or cake, I love fruit so I'm fortunate there. Maybe try that. When I can't eat a good meal and have to count calories, shoot me lol (kidding)!

I wish I could get my wife to wear thongs occasionally. She has the butt for it.

Well, we are. I take it all back, retirees! Just because I have not seen thongs on anyone over 30, doesn't mean you seniors don't look hot in them!


Good for all you shapely ladies! And guys, if that's a thing (thong) too!

I am 62, and I still wear makeup, go to the hairstylist once every 3 months, get a manicure-pedicure every other month, go, exercise twice a week, walk once a week, tai chi once a week, and yoga once a week. I still work part-time but that job feels like I am a volunteer. I color my hair roots every three weeks.

I let my 32 year-old daughter choose my clothes, and I pay for them. I am am about 160 pounds, am 5'6", and I wear a size 10. I want to wear a size 8, but I would need to loose about 10 pounds in order to get to that size.

I have decided to eat what I want most of the time, but I have also decided that I don't want to become unattractive.
I have been married to the same man for over 34 years, and I don't take him for granted. I also do not want to look too old.

I don't mind looking and being older, but "letting yourself go?" No way.

I wasn't talking about thongs for seniors!

I was just talking about thongs in general, as they exist - as a poster had listed all the different types of underwear panties - french cut, bikini, granny panties, full cut, etc.

This thread motivates me to sign up for 2 PE classes, one class everyday except Friday for the coming semester. I'm going to be so fit that I might have to wear thongs to show off. Haha.
