After doing my rather funny impromptu video about why I hate gray hairs, I was inspired to survey real women about aging and what they hate about it! Their responses were phenomenally unanimous! And they told it like they felt it!
So here's the not-so-hot deal on aging according to you!
And more they hate:
"That I always look and feel tired and losing weight just ain't as easy as in my 20s." - Stacey Heneveld
"Weight, tired, grays make me CRAZZZZY!!!" - Ashley Johnson
"I don't mind the gray hair or wrinkles. I do mind the slower weight loss and mental clarity." - Onica Cupido
"hot flashes" - Adriann Humphrey
"Thinning hair." - Travell Barbara
"Much less energy and mental "fog" - mostly due to menopause I think. Growing older ain't for sissies!" - Barbra Saufley
"Gray hair and sagging skin. UGH Can't I just be younger again?" Nanette Gomez
"Hot flashes, hot flashes and hot flashes!!! Does that count as three answers??? lol" - Jocelyn Buhl
"Loss of sight." - Maria Bailey
"Slowed metabolism!" - Jayme O'Renic
"I think sagging skin coz it's very easy to color your hair again and there are lots of products that can prevent wrinkles. but its very expensive to get botox hahaha." - Ellen Garcia.
"Keepin' it classy with chin hairs!" - Teresa Olivera
"Health risks" - Rachel Alexandra
" Gravity. Everywhere and anywhere on my body." - Karen Rinehart
"Chin hairs" - Nicole Brady
I know all of us will go down this [aging] path but it doesn't mean we can't hate it. Personally, if I can stop it, I will - but then again, even the great technology we have, is incapable of reversing the process! Thus, we're told many times, like broken records to "embrace it" and to "age gracefully". Not really sure how I can do that since there is really nothing graceful about getting old - except perhaps continue coloring my gray hair and pretend I don't have them!
