When I drink a lot of water my skin looks so good, so I'm doing that, and drinking nettle tea again.

And I vow to buy myself some new bras; I've held out as long as I can!

last time I got my hair done was mid-april and it has lasted for 4 (!!!) months. I'm going to make an appointment to get it re-done. Also yesterday I ordered my face products because mine are on dregs. =)

I don't know about that brush idea, it seems like if the fat is trapped between the layers of your skin, on the inside, then brushing the outside wouldn't help cellulite. Plus, that spark quiz says it doesn't help it.

I think having a fake tan helps camouflage it though.

The only real help I got for mine was being a lot thinner.

I have a body brush that I haven't used in a long time, but I'm going to get it out and start dry brushing before bath. It's supposed to be good for cellulite.

I'm liking the vitC and wild yam, I haven't decided yet if it's worth the cost. I'm going to have to use it a bit longer to see the real results.

It is Amways vitamin C and wild yam serum, which you mix after you get it and put on your face with a little dropper. These Amway products cost a lot but not as much as Clinique and work WAY better. I've been using the cleanser, toner, mositurizer for about a month now and I can really really notice a difference! I'll let you know how the wild yam and C does..

oh, report back your results on yam/vitC -is it an estrogen replacement (yam) or is it a facial cream (vitamin C)?

I will look for something for the frown lines -maybe the vit C serum will work

Beauty focus is to put sunscreen moisturizer daily and use Aveeno calming moisturizer on neck and chest for sun damage already done.

(oh yes, I remember the "attention to detail" that I used to do when I was younger, and that my daughter and granddaughters do now).

I'm going to get one week in, on my taekwondo, to start establishing it as a habit, before I start my ab workout, but NEXT Wednesday the challenge is going to be strengthening 3x and that's when I'll start my ab workout. I'm actually going to do strengthening everyday though, I gotta make sure I don't lose the progress I've already made on my ass, it looks really good! I didn't know fat girls could have great asses!

Okay! Beauty focus for May is abs. I went ahead and posted a side view abs only picture for a "before" picture. and took measurements emoticon
abs 39-1/2
hips 39
waist 32-1/2
belly button area-36-1/2

I will come up with a plan (I'm thinking of pulling out all the DVDs that I have that have to do with abs and make a rotation of them)

Spaarta, that is a great plan. I did that in the past, worked on my butt and it really truly looks better. Several ppl have told me I have a good ass, 200+ lbs and all and I still have a good ass. YAY! I need to focus on abs/belly. I think I'll do this with you, as my beauty focus for May.

My beauty focus of the month is:
1. I really, really want to get my menopause belly down. I'm tired of pants, shorts, skirts not fitting right. So the focus is abs and cardio.
2. Other beauty focus: Skin care regimen, teeth regimen, and toenails.

I am focusing on getting my thin hair to look thicker! I just tried this new shampoo called Hair One (got it at Sally's Beauty), and so far, I am liking it. I also just started taking biotin (for hair, skin, and nails) by Naturemade.

I am getting new hip glass soon. Monday I'm going to pick out a frame and probably pay for half of it, the glasses are EXPENSIVE because of my Rx.

Turns out I am not a good candidate for contacts which is a bummer but I have an appt coming up (free consultation) to find out if I'm a good candidate for lasik eye surgery which I certainly can't afford right now...

I am trying to straighten out my health regimen, which should improve the way I look and feel. Just added multivitamin and acidophilus supplements to my day. I can already feel the acidophilus working. Less bloating will certainly be better!

I LOVE that idea. I can't do it because too many ppl in my house and only one bathroom but I am thinking I could set up a basket with candles and music and pampering stuff, and take it with me into the bathroom. Sort of a portable spa....

Good for you on setting up the hair appointment!

I am going to clean my bathroom really good, and make it a spa-like environment.

Ooooh I LOVE it! This is SO fun! I'm going to take your idea, and start flossing my teeth every night instead of once in a while when I think i better, or ELSE! =)

1. I took Reina's idea and did foot care with exfoliation and foot cream and warm socks.

2. Going to do the nightly face serum, and feet, elbows, knees cream.

3. Went to thrift store and found 3 Tuscany inspired pictures of fruit for the kitchen.

Your post is so inspirational!
My beauty habit for April will be:
1. Dental care (teeth whitening and flossing nightly).
2. Feet, elbows, knees exfoliation and creams.
3. Nightly facial serum on face and neck.

March is about over.
My beauty goal for March was to dress myself as if I were as important as my kids (or other women) (!!!!) and I have done it. I believe I've established a habit of not going out the door unless I am dressed in "real" clothes. People have certainly reacted to me differently--a lot more than I would have thought!

April is going to be all about my hair. During March, I put my hair in a french braid pretty much everyday so it wouldn't detract from my outfits, even though I didn't get it cut or colored or anything. April is going to be the month I take care of my hair and keep it taken care of!

Today is my hair appointment--I'm getting a cut and color or maybe highlights. I have a lot of gray so probably highlights won't be enough to make it look nice, but I hate the maintenance of coloring it...at any rate, after I get my hair done the only other thing I want to do is buy a little makeup (just powder, lipstick, and mascara). I think it will be enough to make a big difference in how I look and feel.

OK, today I went shopping.
I got myself a pair of nice dressy jeans and a pair of linen slacks, plus 3 blouses, and a pair of black flat shoes that look great and are comfortable. I shopped at Lane Bryant's and J.C. Pennys and Payless shoes. It was about $145. which is a LOT for my budget but if I add one casual dress to it, that makes enough outfits to wear something different each day for a week and look nice everyday.

I haven't bought myself anything that didn't come from Goodwill in so many years I didn't even know what size I wear. And it took a LONG time to find something that looked good on me at my current size which is size18. These clothes look GREAT. I dropped both pants at the tailors to be hemmed, so they won't drag on the ground but I'll get them back Friday. Starting next week I am going to dress for success!

You know something funny, I didn't bat an eye at spending a couple hundred on school clothes for my kids, even 10 years ago, but I am dizzy from spending that $150 on myself! But before my shopping trip, I owned only one pair of huge, elastic waist jeans from Goodwill, and I just wore them everyday with whatever old huge t-shirt (also from Goodwill) happened to be clean.

I'm going to get my hair done in Chicago!
And then I am going to post Before/After pics with my hair and clothes!

3. Sandal-ready heels and toes
4. Exfoliate knees and elbows
5. New mascara and makeup (department store makeover)

As I think of more, I'll add to the list

Today I made myself a list of beauty related things that I care about, but I haven't picked one yet. I'm thinking a new hair cut and coloring would be the logical place to start.

If you want to do this with me then make a list of things you have neglected about your appearance, and then each month you can choose one to put BACK into your life.

This is important for a few reasons.

One is that it's just taking care of yourself and you would do as much for anyone you were responsible for.

The other and maybe even more important one is, people don't respect you if you don't respect yourself. And letting yourself get run down and frumpy is disrespectfulo to yourself.

Lets get our sexy back!!
