Incidentally, all those chemicals can give you cancer - I was prompted to stop coloring when I developed a cancerous cyst on my scalp from trying to keep up with the gray roots and dying so often. No thanks.

Telling women what they SHOULD do, isn't an opinion. And even known carcinogens don't lead to cancer in everyone.

If you don't want to color your hair, don't. Nobody is saying that you should, the way you are telling others that they shouldn't.

I do not look in the least fat, but I look nicely filled out, and have been told my face looks better too (I always had a thin face). Key is to get to a healthy weight where one looks and feels good and keep some muscle tone. I do light workouts daily.

OP, it is understandable if you look tired and puffy because of losing a loved one. Grief takes its toll like no other. You will probably have to give it time and do the best you can for your health - physical, mental and spiritual. Drink plenty of water (you may be dehydrated), get exercise and get plenty of rest. Being healthy goes a long way toward looking good.
Your weight sounds ideal and you must look great...I think when the neck and face go scraggy its time to stop losing weight...at an older age.... its all to do with where the fat lands on each persons body... not the overall fat content.. I knew a very thin woman who had a fat gut in the middle. this is more difficult to deal with..

I have a "turkey waddle", too. I guess nothing I can do about that.

Yeah, the weight thing is not too bad - I only need to lose 5-10 pounds.

Diet needs revamping. I am going to go through my food this weekend and toss EVERYTHING bad and not buy anymore Lean Cuisines, sweets or processed food.

Not sure what I will eat, lol!

Here's mine. Develop a good attitude about life, yourself and the world at large (yes, this may be difficult as we live in troubled times) always, always try to be happy and smile, even if you have to remind yourself to do so.
Agreed, positive energy and attitude show.
Smiling makes a difference--even what I call "in a good mood" almost-smile. And when you do smile, make sure your eyes also smile.

I totally agree with this. Perhaps that is my biggest problem - my inner sadness probably comes through and that is hard to hide with makeup and skincare. They say "fake it till you make it", right?

For a 50+ woman, to look young you can go for pretty cute looking clothes, wear minimal makeup and get a nice hairstyle that suits your face cut.

What's wrong with "Lean cuisine?"


I consider it to be a treat - at least some of their dishes)))


The best thing when you are on the go ( particularly their salmon with orzo which is now gone - sob-sob)))
