Support Groups - If you could change...
01-02-2005, 01:36 AM
one thing about yourself what would you change? Excluding your weight as we all know we all would change that and are working at doing so. So...
The one thing I would change if I could is my face. Not that I want another face, just a lift here and there mainly my eyes. My eyelids droop and make me look tired and grouchy. Plus I have those nasty bags under my eyes. My mother is the same way and while she has aged well her eyes make her look tired and a little older.
So what one thing would you ladies change if you could? Or do you like/love everything about yourself?
Do I have to limit it to just one thing?!? :lol: Well, I'd say my face, too. I'd like it to be tight and smooth the way it was when I was 20.

Ahh - youth is wasted on the young - ne'st pas? You know, since Leigh weaned a year ago my hair has been thinning which I find highly annoying! I have always had a thick head of hair with a reddish brown color - only a few strands of gray. I must have been pretty vain about it, because now that half of it is gone - I am in a dither over what to do about it if anything.
Don't want to go the rogaine route.....tried rosemary oil, but it was too strong and irritated my eyes. So I now my approach is to just make it look as nice as I can so I feel good about it. That's why I am highlighting it and maintaining a cut that I like.

Be put under and all my teeth root canaled and crowned. There are 3,,,then having the gap between my teeth filled, having them rest whitened.

I second you,Angie , on the teeth. I want mine yanked and dentures. I"ve always hated my teeth. I was given Tetrocyclene before the perminant teeth came in and it stained them yellow. It's hard to care about dental care when your teeth are ugly anyway. Next to the teeth I'd wish for an aptitude for algrbra and higher math. I'm terrible at it.

My chin/jaw line. I really hate my profile. I think my chin just kind of flows right into my neck w/out a definition of a chin!! It looks bad. and the more weight I gain the worse it looks.
So that would be what I would change.

That's a hard one. I think I would change my self confidence. Actually, I wouldn't change it, I would find some.
Katy, try Biotin. My hairdresser suggested it as my hair is like yours. I took double the reccomended dose and it really has helped. Side effects: great nails. I get it at Wal Mart. I wish I could remember the price. It isn't that awful or I wouldn't get so much of it.

Now if I could have a second thing to change...I DEFINITELY would have a boob job! I have always hated them. Well, not hated them...hated that guys were always commenting and looking. I would definitely go down a size because I feel mine are just too big and in the way. A b-cup would be perfect for me! I think those are the only two things I would change about myself/body. Who knows after watching that show 10 Years Younger I may someday! Got me to thinking and wondering if I look older than I am. I don't think but got me to wondering.

Ellen~yeah, don't think I am ready for the show either. People are harsh but the ones I saw I was a little close to the real age. But there was a woman on there that was 23 and I thought for sure she was at least 35! :yikes:

I would change myself so I could have self confidence, I would not hate myself but love myself and I would boost myself up in the front top of my body and get rid of my bedroom eyes. I inherited that from my dad and grammy, those dark circles under my eyes that when I am sick or tired make me look like death warmed over.

Hi Gals, I'm the new KID on the block so bare with me. I keep loosing all of you. Hi Girlfriend Pam who got me to come here, wherever here is........What would I change about me? Gosh, I think I'm pretty decent the way I am.....other than for my wrinkles on my forhead that seem to be getting deeper with every worry. And maybe the bag under my left eye that droops more than the right......... Don't understand why the lipstick curls up thru each line above my lip either. Does anyone else have these problems or am I the oldest gal here? And are we suppose to feel better after communing with one another. I want to bury myself in a hole now. grin Nice being with fellow sufferers.

This may sound dumb, but one thing I would really like to change about myself is the shape of my sternum.... It comes out to a noticeable point at the top :?: it really bothers me so I would either change that or my chest so that my boobs were bigger and higher so you wouldn't notice the point ;)

After reading all of your posts I would have to say I want it all, younger face better body, smaller chest, friends and relatives with a small bust size look thinner even when they have gained a few pounds and their shirts button. Taller, I want to be taller, 5'2" gives you no room for extra weight.
