I'm having a hard time dealing with my face. Yeah, I know it's the same face I've had for 60-odd years but with the loss of 80-odd lbs. it isn't exactly the same. Sure, I recognize myself, but when did I get so old?

When you're fat, you tend to only look at your face, ignoring what's below your neck except to make sure it's covered enough so as not to scare anyone. Since my surgery, nine months ago, I've concentrated on that ignored area as I watched myself shrink.

Recently, I started paying attention to my face. I know my cheeks were always round and my nose stubby but where did the reedy neck come from and the creases at the side of my mouth?

I can only live with it of course.

Maybe a decent haircut would help.
