    Has your weight loss made you look younger?

    I am getting told all the time that I look 10 years younger than I did before!

    How fab is that!!

    Me too Kat! Funny thing is.. I look in the mirror and honestly think I look loads older :eek:. More grey, more wrinkles and a scrawny neck LOL.

    Liking my face much better though, so don't really mind if it looks older or younger.

    I don't think I look particularly younger but I'm dressing younger/more fashionably so I guess that has an effect

    Ahh Snorks - you may have hit it on the head.

    Instead of hiding under shapeless baggy items and skulking in the corner - I am choosing clothes that show off my new shape to it's best. I have actually opted for a particular style and a combination of clothes that go together - instead of anything that fits at the time. I no longer skulk and walk much taller, looking people in the eye.

    Yes, I probably do appear younger to others, but its a whole me impression rather than just my face they are commenting on!

    Hey - that's a lightbulb moment for me :D.

    Thanks

    :D You're welcome! I do find when I wear my older clothes, i feel dowdier and duller. My newer clothes give me a bit more confidence - if that translates into a younger/more vibrant effect then who am I to argue!

    I agree with everything youhave said

    I think I am in danger of being a bit "mutton".
    I'm tempted to wear clothes that are too young for me that I haven't been able to wear for years, such as minis and leggings and bling.
    Am I trying to re-live my youth? make up for lost time?
    I don't want to fall into the 16/61 syndrome - 16 from the back, 61 from the front !!:confused::cry:

    Oy, you madam - you are in no fear of being mutton!! Nor are you near the 16/61 factor either! Bite your tongue Mrs! You are gorgeous, and you are full of life and personality and it shows in your clothes!! Seeemples. :D You always look great!

    And if we are recapturing some of what we missed out on - hoorah for us - its our right! We spent half of our lives missing out - high time we had some fun, however we decide to!

    And if anyone out there doesn't like it- tough patootey! :D

    You are beautiful. Just as you are.

    Think you've stumbled on something here. Today I was told I look like "my own younger sister"! I'll let you decide:

    You're all lovely - thank you! It's only a stone so far but I am quite little so it's proportionately a lot. And I couldn't have done it without all of you - I've been checking out all your pictures (believe me!) and you all look amazing, too!

    I wonder if it's partly because when you're overweight and unhappy with it, you (not *you* exactly but *one) LOOKS unhappy? I think I look very tired in my previous pictures, which can age you. Whereas when we lose the weight we look bright and chirpy and a bit dazed because we can't believe what we're seeing in the mirror ;) ?

    What a lovely smile you have Bea!! And it certainly has come off your face quick.

    As you are only 5', I should think that the loss ratio to someone like me at 5' 7" or Kat at 5' 9" could be half as much again!
