Sometimes obsession can be a good thing. It tends to lead to follow through, but lately I have been obsessing on aging. Even more to the point, on how I look as I age. I don’t want to have that pudgy middle that so many women have at my age, and I detest brown spots. For Christmas I received a Face rejuvenator. It’s laser light is supposed to lessen fine lines and brown spots. Does it work? Maybe a little, at least when I can remember to use it, but I certainly don’t think I look years younger as promised.
Weight has always been an issue. After all, I’m a girl, and right or wrong, most of us tend to fixate on our figures. Lately I find myself looking for miracle cures. Sure I know eating well and exercising are in order, but I want a boost. Something that will give me quick results and thereby keep me going. It’s too frustrating to work your ass off for minimal results. I want to look like the beautiful people. Is that really so much to ask?
Yesterday I was flipping through a magazine and saw an ad for SeroVital-hgh. I have often made fun of various celebrities and their obsessive quest for youth. I would never inject myself with anything just to look younger. That’s going too far, right? Now it comes in pill form though, and the ad claims it can reduce body fat, increase muscle mass, boost mood, heighten your sex drive, get rid of wrinkles and tighten saggy skin. Why aren’t we all taking this? It says I could look and feel DECADES! younger!!
I know what you are saying; It’s too good to be true. I think that too, and yet I’d be lying if I said I’m not really tempted to give it a try. You know, just to see if maybe it could do even a fraction of what they claim. Perhaps they’d like to provide me with a free sample and I could document my findings. Let you guys know if I grow a second head, or dial it back so far that I look like a child. That kind of thing.
Sure it would be great to love myself as I am, and I know I shouldn’t be so shallow, but I like pretty things and I just really, really want to be one of them. What do you think? Are you completely satisfied with everything about yourself? Would you be tempted?
