More like Uncle Fester
The upside ... I have now lost a total of 26 pounds. The last two pounds took a little longer to va-moose. I wasn't gaining at all, just staying the same. I was getting a little bit pissy about it and va-walla, I am down the two.
There has been some changes. Yes, I am in a smaller pant, top, bra, even undie size, but something else is happening.
I have always, even as a young kid, had dark circles under my eyes. I refer to them as the "Uncle Fester" look, or the "heroin addict hasn't had a fix today" look. Over the years, I have been able to conceal them with make-up.
Make-up is not working.
I keep looking at my eyes wondering WTF? Is it because my face has lost weight too, that they are really prominent? Could it be part of the "over fifty" thingy that I constantly refer to?
If I have to go around looking like a member of the Addams Family, why can't I be Morticia?
Do you have any pearls of wisdom on how to lighten or conceal this look? I would certainly appreciate any advice.
