Reason #6 to lose weight - age! I want to look my age. I'm 38 years old, but I've been asked if I was my sister's mom, and another time if I was my dad's wife - not great moments in my life!! I've always thought - losing weight equals looking younger. However, recently, I've had a fear of looking even older once I lose the weight. I think, the extra fat on the face covers up wrinkles, so I sure hope I don't look like Yoda under all this fat!!!!
