My first question is If on Medifast, can you substitute own food? Many thanks for any answer. Second question.. (keep in mind that I am 46 years-old and gravity has definitely begun it's work on my face, okay?).

I was taking off my makeup last night and was holding a mirror in my hand. I needed a cotton ball out of a drawer and bent over to get it and happened to see my face in the mirror while I was bent over. It was truly a horrifying sight to behold..

OMG - the loose skin of my face and neck came forward and made me look like the Crypt Keeper. I almost screamed, LOL!.

Thankfully, when I stood up everything evened out a bit, but that was the scariest thing I've seen in a long, long time. I know I'm getting older, but I sure hope that I still have enough elasticity in my skin for things to tighten up at least a little bit - sheesh! I don't want to scare little kids just by being out in public!.

Of course, when I look at my before pictures and see my little squinty eyes and chipmunk cheeks, I'm rather thankful for my current Skeletor face, LOL!..

Oh, please! It's not just you girls... if I stood on my head I'd be covered, blinded and suffocated by everything that would droop down!.

Several years ago, a friend of my mom's made a trip to Vegas. She lay down on the bed in their room and OOHHHHH MMMMYYYYY, mirror on the ceiling!! In spite of the "interesting" sights she saw on that trip.

She did note that the wrinkles in her face smoothed out and she looked easily 10 years younger..

SO, if a youthful appearance is you goal remember face up is better than face down...

, you are just so funny..


, you are so right. Always face up and NEVER face down. Rules of women and men of a certain age...

There was a "Golden Girls" episode that dealt with this very issue..

One of the ladies was mentioning that a woman "of a certain age" should never be on top because the skin would move forward..

Blanche grabbed a hand mirror, leaned over it and yelled, "Oh my G-d!!".

The other women basically ignored her and kept talking about relationship issues. Blanche leaned her head back and started primping her hair in the mirror. "Oh yes! Yes! That's so much beh-tah!".

A few other GG moments:.

Contractor: Do you want it fast or do you want it good?.

Sophia: Before you answer that, Blanche, the man's talking about a guest room..

Blanche: I was once told I bore a striking resemblance to Cheryl Ladd... but my bosoms are perkier..

Dorothy: Not even if you were hanging upside-down from a trapeze!.

Rose: Oh, Blanche, if your 21st birthday was 20 years ago, you'd only be 41 years old!.

Blanche: That's right..

Rose: Gee, you look terrible for your age..

Rose: [discussing hair removal products] Dorothy, would you like to try this thing?.

Dorothy: What is it?.

Rose: Well, that wire vibrates and it's supposed to whisk hair away from below the skin line..

Dorothy: Yeah, I don't know whether I wanna use this. It says it's gonna hurt..

Rose: Well, you can try it on your right leg and then use the hot wax on your left one..

Dorothy: Why don't we just set each other on fire?.

Rose: Dorothy....

Dorothy: All right, all right. Let's see if they sent a bullet to bite on..


Have a great Saturday!..
