A dilemma of sorts?

Okay. I need to lose some weight. Big surprise. Not really. BUT there are a few things to be considered here.

Firstly, all of the clothes in my closet fit. Yes, they fit. And I love my clothes. If I lose very much weight, they will be too baggy and I will not be able to wear them. Well, I will be able to wear them but their bagginess will make me look bigger than I really am, IF I should happen to lose the weight. And who wants to wear baggy clothes after you've lost weight? No,you want to wear clothes that show your weight-lossedness!

Secondly, I don't have alot of wrinkles in my face. Even my aunts and cousins (on my mom's side) commented on how few wrinkles my sister Bev and I have because the women on my mom's side of the family tends to have alot of wrinkles as they age and asked how we managed to have so few. I don't know. I don't do anything special.

But here's my take on it: Who needs botox and collagen? I have fat. I'm serious! My sister, Bev, and I swear by this!! We do!! *smile*

You see, the fat keeps the wrinkles plumped out and filled in AND also keeps our skin from sagging as much as it would if we were, well, less plump than we are! *grin*
Soooooo, do you see where I'm at here? If I stay at the weight I am presently holding, well, I may be fat but I'm virtually wrinkle-free. But if I lose the weight that I need to, well......you never know what the end result might be......

Sweetie, you are a beautiful lady, just as you are.

It would be nice if we were made of play-doh. If we look a little too big, pinch some off and give it to one of those people who lament that they never can gain any weight. If you're wrinkled, just smooth it out. Oh well.

LOL! Actually, I have wondered about the same thing -- how much more extra skin and wrinkles I'd have if I lost weight.

Jewel said...

Thank you, Denise...:-)...that is what my family says, too.
Hmmmm....that is a thought, sir, but I am sure that there would be some drawbacks, I'm just too tired to think of any at the moment. I do know that play-doh will dry out and crack if you don't keep it sealed up. *grin*
See how much we ARE alike, Barbara!? *smile* I love it! Oh, heavens, I don't even want to think about the rest of my body and the sagging that would occur. And besides, I can kind of camoflauge those with clothes, but not the face! LOL

My family and I just had the very same conversation...the fat just fills in the wrinkles and keeps us looking young!

Thanks for the smile!

*smile* Hmmm....it seems I may have touched on something here, hm? LOL I'm not the only one facing this dilemma! I still haven't decided what to do but wrinkles and a crepey *sp* neck aren't looking really appealing to me. *sigh*

Bethany said...

haha love the picture...mom and i were talking about this whole thing just the other day and how she has hardly any wrinkles but if she were to loose weight it'd all come out of the woodwork as it were....lol so funny...i do hope i look as good as you guys do when i get older!!!

Jewel said...

See?? It is true! We would look like wrinkled old hags if we were to lose very much weight!
And thank you Bethany, for the compliment! I'm sure you'll look very good when you are older because you look just like your mama! ((hugs))
