Lately I've been hearing neighbor's dog outside whimpering or crying almost daily. Late at night, too. I really, really hope they're not neglecting him. :(

In response to a confession. Yeah, no worries for sure. One day of indulgence isn't going to derail you, esp if you've been on track since June.. Which is awesome BTW. The 3 lbs are probably due to the high carb and sodium. That's why I never weigh the day after. Give it 4-5 days and I'm sure the extra weight will be gone. Plus sometimes it's good to shock your body with a high calorie day, after all those months of restricting.

In response to a confession. Thank you. I was seriously about to make a sandwich and I turned around and put the bread away. I looked in the mirror today, and I still like how I look. What I don't like are the feelings I have every holiday season around gaining weight. Usually I keep overeating and keep feeling miserable. Not this year! I just went down a pants size and I am not going to mess that up.

In response to a confession. No worries. You can drink a lot of water and lose three pounds in one day, too.

How did I gain three pounds in one day???? Thanksgiving dinner was the only meal I ate yesterday. Don't get me wrong, I indulged- turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, stuffing, one roll, but I didn't have seconds. I did have two slices of pumpkin pie and a late night snack of more stuffing. Thoroughly enjoyed it! But THREE POUNDS IN ONE DAY? I used to love the leftovers but I need to leave them alone! No pumpkin pie for breakfast, no turkey sandwich for lunch, no leftovers for dinner! This was my first cheat day since June and I am so annoyed right now, but I'm going to get back on track NOW! I didn't work this hard to lose 32 lbs to undo it all over the holidays. Not gonna happen!

In response to a confession. Tbh, I'm not sure why I look as young as I do - but I'm grateful! One half of my family look older than they are, the other look their age or older (except for one aunt). In my 20s/early 30s, I burned the candle from both ends AND the middle (lots of drinking/little sleep, no drugs though), and never wore sunscreen even though I grew up in Los Angeles (SMOG) and spent every minute I could at the beach. As mentioned, I smoke. And the last 20 years I've just been through the wringer with stress, tragedies and depression. These days I don't eat as well as I should due to my work schedule, and I definitely don't drink nearly enough water. Yet the only wrinkles I have are on my forehead, from crying so much. The only thing I DO have is olive skin.

In response to a confession. Yeah, that's called correlation. I'm a dermatologist, and there's nothing magical about olive oil. Like the OP said, genetics, lifestyle, these all play a factor. If you're lucky enough to look 35 at 50, then trust me, it ain't the olive oil. The antioxidants may play a small role in improving your skin, but not even Tretinoin has that kind of power. Stress, lifestyle, genes, race (and therefore amount of melanin in the skin), environmental pollutants, all play a large role if we're talking "natural" factors as opposed to Botox etc. The only skincare item that truly makes a huge difference is sunscreen, and even then of course the importance of that depends on your skin's tone and how much natural protection you have (but still, wear sunscreen.) Also, olive oil can cause acne in a lot of folks, even older folks.

In response to a confession. I do agree that celebs exaggerate things like this because they don't want to admit publicly to surgery. But, I remember as far back as 5 years old and my grandmother making me put olive oil on my skin, and she'd also do hot olive oil hair masks on me. I still do both to this day. Even though I gained 80lbs during pregnancy (long maternity leave and lots of ice cream lol), I have no stretch marks. And at 53, I still get carded buying cigarettes. Last week, I was sitting out by the fire pit at a hotel where I was for business, and a REALLY handsome man came and sat down. We started talking and he was obviously flirting with me. At one point I asked his age, he said 35 and I nodded. He said, "Oh, you're 35 too?" I told him my age and he went 0_o and left pretty quickly after that lol

Do celebrities actually believe they look like that at 50+ because of some old family skincare recipe or fucking olive oil? They really must think we're stupid. I'm not saying it's all botox or those refractory lasers or whatever they're called, having a team dedicated to your diet, exercise, makeup and photo filtering helps, as does amazing genes. But I'm so sick of these "It's just a good skincare routine and being kind," comments. If olive oil made you look like J-lo at 50 olives would probably be extinct already. I know women get shit on when they admit having surgery or treatments like botox, and that's shitty, but I don't think lying about it to the general public really solves the problem.
