Can I be rebuilt?! Body reclaim inspiration please...

So I am 36 and seem to have fallen apart (bodily, that is) and I'm gearing up for a last ditch body rehaul effort... I'm 5ft tall and 62kg - so a bit overweight but not obese - and I definitely need to start with a slim down.. but the list of repair work needed is daunting - I'm going grey, my hair is a bit mumsy, my teeth are a disaster, my skin is ropey, tits are saggy, belly bears the carnage of 3DDS, arse is flopsy, terrible terrible varicose veins and bunions, dress like a fogey etc etc.. I feel like I'm 66 not 36. , inspire me! Where do I start? Has anyone managed a total reclaim - and if so what are your top tips? I'm looking for practical and do-able - (and preferably refer me to cosmetic dentists/beauty salons/ in the Nottingham/Newark area wink).. Basically, can I get the 10 years younger team on me without the humiliation of going on telly?

haha your post made me laugh.. you definitely have kept your sense of humour intact..

you could get your teeth bleached for starters (there are websites like groupon who email beauty deals every day.. so you could get some things at a fraction of the price.. some look quite good). Get yourself also to a funky hairdresser (i think Rush for example are doing offers for first time visitors (and you sound like you've never been to Rush wink)

I think also a bit of self love/acceptance would be useful, basically cut yourself some slack smile

good luck
