    Gosh, I don't want to look like somebody else. I just want to look like that girl in the mirror did 15 years ago. (No, not 20 years ago...I want SOME character in my face) And I want my "real" hair back. All those grays just don't belong here! And I just know it didn't used to be this dark. What happened to those natural golden and coppery highlights it used to have?

    You're right, though. Goldie Hawn looks terrific. I always wonder though if they look as great in person as they do in the magazine photos. I wonder how much airbrushing they do on the wrinkles.

    I wouldn't mind looking like ME but...a ME with thinner thighs and the belly I had when I was 19--having given birth to triplets, it's irreparably damaged. Then I could get my belly button pierced!

    I would choose to look like me, only a lot thinner, longer hair, and have my "white-blonde" hair back that I had when I was little. I would also like to be 5-10, instead of 5-1 like I am now. However, I do like my 6 inch platform tennis shoes

    I've always wanted to get my eyes done. Lately though as I look into the mirror, I think a forehead lift wouldn't be so bad either. The only thing that stops me though (other than the $) is the pain I anticipate. My husband gets really mad when I talk about it though, because he thinks I'm vain. I guess we all can be to a point, but whats wrong with trying to look your best?

    I tell my husband all the time that once we're done having babies and I'm done breastfeeding and my boobs look like a couple of tube socks that I'm getting IMPLANTS. I want my boobs to STAND AT ATTENTION when I'm 40!! My husband doesn't care, he says, as long as I'm happy. Well, perky boobies will make me happy. So there!

    Tube Sock boobs crack me up... So funny when I have an old Geri Patient who literally "rolls" her breast up into her mega bra. Makes me NEVER want to be old!

    I also don't want plastic surgery, I just want to look like I did when I was 21, and that will never be the same again!

    kday, please do me a favor, after you get your new boobs, please promise to dye your hair when you get gray. There is a mom at dance class, and her boobs stand at attention all right, they are so perky that it streches her shirt away from her chest! But she lets her hair go almost 50% gray. It looks ridiculous. Maybe she should have gone a little smaller or more natural-looking. Makes it look more artificial, and she is a very pretty woman who was/is a natural ash blonde. If she died her hair, she'd really look like a knock-out!

    So, promise me that kday, OK! LOL!! Then wear a bikini and shimmy em girl!

    I would have Breast Reduction Surgery! I am a 42DD and have been a DD for years. Back in 1993, I lost 70 lbs but did NOT go down in cup size just band size. I have back probs and shoulder indentations from my bras and just cannot find the "perfect" bra for me. They have to be underwire, softcup just does not give me enough support. Does anybody have any suggestions? Since I have gained back the weight that I lost years ago, I would look silly if I had a reduction before losing weight. My belly would stick out further than my boobs. I get enough "when are you due honey" comments as it is now. I am starting a diet today Monday. My goal is to get down to 180 lbs or less. My only brother is getting married in October of 2002 so I have 14 months to lose 50 to 60 lbs! I wanna look good at the ripe old age of 31! Plus I'd like to have a baby too and need to lose weight to acheive that goal too! Wish me luck! Will power was never one of my strong points!

    On the "bra suggestions", if you have a mall with a Playtex/Bali outlet, go there and ask one of the employees for help. I suspected I was wearing the wrong bra size, but also thought that underwires, like fashionable shoes, were SUPPOSED to hurt I got measured and discovered I needed a band size FOUR INCHES bigger than what I had been wearing! Now I can wear my new bras all day without having to peel them off out of my sleeves on the drive home

    I have about the same amount of weight to lose, but one of my biggest problems has always been planning menus. I recently joined ediets.com and have lost 5 lbs in 3 weeks. Slower than what I would like, but I didn't gain all this weight overnight either! I am very afraid of losing too much too fast and ending up looking like a Sharpei puppy. I don't follow the meal plan exactly, but use it for guidelines. It also helps that it tells me the menu and gives me a shopping list, so I have no excuses.

    For anyone out there considering a "boob job", be very careful when choosing your surgeon. My sister interviewed three (with me at her side) before she found one she was reasonably sure wouldn't make her look like a stripper. A lot of male surgeons seem to think "the bigger the better". She now has very nice 36 B breasts (yeah, she was VERY flat before), and no one she hasn't told knows she had surgery. It helps that she was wearing padded Miracle bras beforehand though!
