Advice needed please - need an overhaul

Hi All, my husband went to live back in Quebec in Nov 2013 and I am planning to visit him later on this year (probably July/Aug) and I need a thorough overhaul and not sure where to start. I am 56 years young and am a bit overweight and totally unfit - have never exercised my whole life. I also seem to have developed spider veins on my face and JOWLS! My skin is dry and my feet are like trotters. Please ladies where do I start? I want to look as good as possible when I see my OH.

Would just like to add I don't have the money to join a gym or to buy fancy products or, much needed, cosmetic surgery! Thanks.

Since you've identified your main problems pick one and work on it! Easiest is your feet. Since your OH is away he won't care if you wear socks to bed so every night put on ordinary vaseline or similar foot product and put socks on over the top. We all have to start somewhere and that one's definitely doable smile
