My hair is naturally ash blond and I think it helps me look younger, and no one notices the wrinkles under my chin.
    Female, age 51, 5' 9"
    SW - 183 (Jan 22, 2012), CW - 159, GW - healthy.

    Met my 2012 goals by losing 24 pounds.
    2013 goals are to get fit and strong!

    I haven't worn my band at work in years. For safety reason's its best I don't wear it. Wifey has gotten used to it though and understand.

    Well as stated earlier, no I don't but it actually has nothing to do with eating primal! I've always looked very young for my age, not helped by the fact that I'm just 4'11"! I do have graying hair, but I dye it so most people aren't any the wiser . I'm actually, sorta, hoping that if I keep eating well my gray hairs will go back to brown . Not really expecting it though!

    I actually once had a funny exchange with someone on a forum, who claimed that most women who thought they looked younger were actually deluding themselves. So, to prove my case, I posted my picture in my avatar. In another, totally unrelated thread, some guy commented, "I thought you were much older!" in response to my picture. My response to him was something like, "I AM older, I just don't look it!" He then said that in my picture I looked about 17 (I was 37 at the time).

    There are downsides to looking ridiculously young though. You should see some of the looks I get when people realise I have kids (10, 12 and 14). Without knowing my age they think I'm an insanely young mother, and you can almost see the thought processes ticking over in their minds, wondering exactly HOW YOUNG I was when I first gave birth!

    There's something to be said for just looking GOOD for your age, and in great shape, rather than years younger! (Although I doubt I'll complain if when I'm 70 I get accused of looking 50 or so ).

    Definitely get more attention from women. I find it a bit shocking given I was invisible 9 months ago.

    Strength, vitality and confidence are attractive; people respond to it. Although I've had 20-something's give me the "hi, how you doin?" bit, women closer to my age of 45 show the most interest. I don't come across many other guys my age that focus their exercise routine on strength. They're either skinny-fat cardio types or fat-fat SAD types. I'd say women my age are hungry for some meat .

    I've been attempting to dress more grown-up. However, dressing studenty/boho is my natural style and inclination, and I detest power dressing.

    Spent a few hours at an eye hospital yesterday, sticking out like a sore thumb as most other patients there were over 60.

    But am very happy with the outcome that I won't need to take any pharmaceuticals and that I am discharged from the NHS regarding my high intraocular pressure for the time being.
    F 5 ft 3. HW: 196 lbs. Primal SW (May 2011): 182 lbs (42% BF)... W June '12: 160 lbs (29% BF) (UK size 12, US size 8). GW: ~24% BF - have ditched the scales til I fit into a pair of UK size 10 bootcut jeans. Currently aligning towards 'The Perfect Health Diet' having swapped some fat for potatoes.
