The easy way out?

I'm always lamenting about my never ending battle to eat better and lose weight.

Though I usually don't mind exercising, I like to eat and have a beer, a glass of wine or a dark rum/Diet Coke on occasion. And that doesn't help with weight loss!

It's a hard battle that keeps getting tougher the older I get.

Wouldn't it be nice to go to sleep one night and wake up skinny? Where's that magic pill?!

Or if I could afford it, what about plastic surgery?

Here's what I might get done:

Facelift: Sagging skin on the face and neck can be frustrating and make people look older.

Eyelift (eyelid lift or blepharoplasty): Both the upper and lower eyelids can sometimes droop or appear puffy, making people look older or tired.

Browlift (forehead lift): Sometimes the eyebrows and forehead can hang low on the face. This can make people look tired or angry.

Rhinoplasty (nose surgery or nose reshaping): Some people are unhappy with the shape or size of their noses.

Breast Lift (mastopexy): Sagging breasts often occur after pregnancy, with weight loss, or with aging.

Liposuction: This is the most common plastic surgery procedure.

Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty): For people who have excess skin and fat of the abdomen, or who have had babies, or have lost a lot of weight, tummy tuck can provide a new shape to the mid-section.

Botox Cosmetic: This treatment can remove wrinkles in treatments that last only minutes, but can take years off facial appearance.

Restylane, Sculptra and Other Injectible Fillers: These skin fillers can help remove lines and wrinkles, sometimes even those that are very deep.

Man, would that cost me a lot of money! Ha!

But if I had that kind of money, I would go to a Los Angeles plastic surgeon where all the actresses go! That's me sitting along side Meg Ryan or Nicole Kidman!

I wonder how much cheaper Toronto cosmetic surgery is than Los Angeles cosmetic surgery?! Hmmmmm ...

Nah, I'm too chicken to do it!

If money was no object, would you have plastic surgery? And if so, what would you have done?

I don't know if that surgeon did such a great job on Meg Ryan..and that is the problem...a lot of the stars look like they have work.

LeeAnn: Meg's looking awfully fake these days ... not good :(

I agree, Meg looks fakey and funky.

I'd be too scared to have anything done.
