First off, Does anyone know any unique chicken Medifast recipes? Looking forward for any answer. Another question I got... Ok, didn't like the bloated look my face had w/all the extra weight. The 1st place the weight loss was noticible was my face. But, I swear I look worse than before!.

I wasn't unattractive before I put on the weight. But, I am now. I have tried taking pictures to put on my profile...but I look awful..

Has anyone else had this issue? Will it go away?..

I know some do feel they look older after wls... the wrinkles once filled with chub now show-up. Sometimes by the time you are at goal... you get used to the new face. Give it some time we are so used to looking at our old one..

I was lucky I think I look younger (you can be the judge this was at 2 years:.

Then me now.

).

I'm sure the makeup counter will sell you a bunch of $$$ goops & pomades and there's probably a bunch of facial muscle tightening exercises you can do but if you are really not feeling it after you have reached your goal there's always a little nip & tuck. I had plastics on the body only, nothing on the face but I have some pals who have had post weight loss.

Surgery.

Face stuff done... they look great..

Dixie, I get it. I don't know from your profile how old you are, but I was 60 when I had the.

Surgery.

10 months ago. I loved getting my eyes back ( cheeks would close them from the bottom when I smiled). But some of my old, non-wrinkled visage was because the fat kept the wrinkles away, but I've got to admit that although I love having cheek bones and collar bones, some of the stuff in between isn't quite so loveable..

From experience I will tell you this. If your not too far out (prob less than 3 months) it does get better, I noticed improvement as my weight loss slowed. It will tighten up some - just like the rest of your skin. It probably won't get as tight as you like without.

Surgery.

- forget the arms, if I do plastics, it's gonna be my neck..

The other thing is moisturize! Supple skin works better. I use Nivea Skin firming lotion on my neck. I was using Stryvectin neck and honestly this works better and at a lot less cost. Target ad had it in Sunday's paper for less than $7 for 13.5 oz. Walmart carries it too. I don't use it on my face - personal choice..

Last things, remember that the godess gave us presbyopia about the same time the wrinkles usually start, just take your glasses off before you look in the mirror - You'll feel a whole lot better. Also if you are taking biotin and zinc to minimize hair loss, it also is suppose to work on nails and skin. There may be an extra advantage there, too..

Enjoy the rest of your new body, this too will even out..

You are beautiful no matter how bad you might think the picture may look...I say "think" because you are probably the only one who judges you that harshly. Post a pic, enjopy it, and start getting use to the new you. After all, it's the only face youve got...might as well smile and show it off!..

I tried really hard not to sound down on myself!! I just look different... I posted an overexposed picture that doesn't show much detail..

I am just hoping that it's the rapid weight lose that's making me look funny. And I.

Hope.

To feel more "normal looking" after I reach goal...

LOL Dixiegirl. Everybodies beautiful and nobody is ugly! My wife tells me that when I tell her I'm old and ugly. Little girl I only want you to try and love yourself more. The fattest guy I knew before.

Surgery.

Allways said to me, Brett you've gotta love yourself or nobody else will..

FYI Dix, beauty is between the left and right ears. Period..

Just sayin Lu..

My face was round pre-op... that went away first. Now I have cheek bones and only one chin... that I love but I feel like my skin doesnt look as youthful as it did when it was fuller. I started wearing a little more makeup, blush to keep the pink... and bought a better moisturizer.

My husband says it makes me look younger, maybe he's just being nice.. :o)..
