Why do I look so old now that I lost weight?????

I lost over 80 lbs and still have 50 to go. But since I lost the weight my eyes look tired and wrinkly, my face got saggy and I look like I'm frowning all the time but I'm not! Also the backs of my hands are looking dry and wrinkly. And even though I got ri of a big round tummy the skin is still there hanging and flopping around when I walk. I'm so depressed about it I don't know what to do!

I've only seen one woman who after losing looked a bit older than she did when 'fat',, and I think it was just her new choice of hairstyle and make-up.
I envy your loss. I look much older r..I think...than I wiuld,..than I will- ...lighter. Has anyone told you outright you look older...maybe you are doing a transfer, -you can't say how extremely fat you are anymore, so you have added on that you look old. Stop beating yourself up as they say and smile at that new,albeit covered up, body. (if you are really saggy, get some light tucks- and perhaps with the dry skin you aren't getting enough fat...seriously. Are you taking fish oil supplements?

if your skin is dry, you may have a vitamin/mineral/fat defficiancy.........a lot of time people who lose weight forget that their body NEEDS cetrain things to may be hurting yourself more than helping yourself...and if you are starting to take on the appearance of an aging, malnourished older person (dry skin and eye bags)...then guess what? you are malnourished and aging at a higher rate.....
