Suzanne Somers has been a beloved figure since I was a little girl. I remember watching her play Chrissy Snow on “Three’s Company” with admiration and joy. Her down-to-earth charm and infectious laughter made her more than just a TV character – she felt like a friend.
Long before anti-aging became a buzzword, Suzanne advocated embracing age with grace and confidence. Her candid approach to aging has left a lasting impact. As I approach 50, Suzanne’s message of positive aging resonates even more.
I can’t forget the “ThighMaster,” her iconic exercise gadget. We even had one at home! Suzanne’s commitment to fitness and overall well-being was evident.
Suzanne’s journey from being a beloved actor to becoming a wellness guru is nothing short of inspiring. She authored books, advocated for alternative approaches to health and wellness, and developed a product line reflecting her dedication to helping women look and feel their best, regardless of age.
Suzanne was fearless in breaking new ground. She faced critics and skeptics along the way but remained firm in her mission to promote positivity in aging and explore holistic approaches to wellness. Her courage to challenge conventional norms paved the way for new conversations about women’s health and well-being.
Suzanne Somers still inspires me as much as she did when I watched her on “Three’s Company” and used the ThighMaster. Because of her legacy, women like me will continue embracing aging and confidently taking control of our well-being. She is an icon of inspiration for women of all ages, not just from my childhood.
In loving memory of Suzanne Somers, may she rest in peace.
