  • I don't care personally. I think it's sad really. Society has put women's selfworth in the old and the new.

  • I don't have a problem either but since I have a baby face and I tell people how old I am they don't belive me.

  • Maybe because they feel they look younger and can get away with lying for awhile longer!

  • I don't understand it myself.  I'm 47 and proud of it.  I look good for my age and I feel good for my age and most importantly, I am really enjoying this stage of my life.

  • I only have a problem with telling my weight. Everyone that knows me remembers me as a small frame 118 pound girl but two kids later and the damn depo shit. I've gained an extra 25 pounds I can't seem to lose. I tell people on here of coarse but I hate telling people who ask me in person.

  • I don't mind saying my age (38) but mind my weight as thats no ones biz but mine & my Doctors! : )

  • I definitely don't mind saying my age because everyone thinks I am 10 years younger than I actually am and no one can believe I am older until I tell them I have an 18 & 16 year old. Now as for my weight I didn't used to mind telling anyone when I was normal weight and until I gained a lot of weight. I live in an area where anorexic women with fake breasts are considered normal, not real size women, very sad. If someone did ask i would just reply I don't care to answer or I say "enough." Thankfully really only doctors check/ask my weight. My weight is no ones business but mine and my doctors.

  • Age... no prob. I look young for my age... people are more surprised when I tell them.

    Weight... prob. I don't even want to admit my weight to myself. I weigh myself 4 times before I believe the scale....then I avoid it for a while until I think I lost weight. At any time I could really not know what I weigh.
