Do the Chin's go away?

Has anyone lost their chins? lol As odd as that sounds! Has anyone lost weight and lost their double chin?

I haven't lost all of my double chin yet but a whole lot of it is gone. People say my face is the first place they notice my weight loss.

When I was 15 I lost 70lbs over a two year period (34 now). I went from 240 - 170. I am a 5'8, large framed female. In my experience, chins go away.

Are you finding that with weight loss, your chins are not going away?

I lost 35 pounds recently. Though I never looked that fat in my face, people can tell I have lost a lot of weight just by seeing my face. I have gotten a refined jawline and cheekbones that used to be masked by chub underneath and round cheeks. There is hope for a single chin!

I also feel like these chins are never going to go away! Thanks for the post!

Try doing some face exercises.
Ilift your chin and tense up your neck.

Also, there's one where you stick your tongue out as far as possible.

Another one where you pucker up and then tense your chin.

And one where you lift you chin and make a chewing motion.

You might want to do this in front of a mirror or when no one's looking... LOL :-)

You'll feel sore around your neck and chin-- it really does help to firm up the loose jowl syndrome, though! ;-)

Chins, as well as all loose skin on your body, will go away with time, as long as you lose weight and body fat percentage healthfully. The loose skin under your chin is due to multiple fat layers under the skin, which stretches it out and weighs it down. Lucky for us, skin is very elastic, and once the fat layers are gone, it will bounce back!

On a similar note, I carried around a deflated balloon baby belly for 3 years after the birth of my daughter, thinking I was doomed to have it for the rest of my life. Once I got on track to actually getting to a normal healthy weight(-25 pounds for me), the loose skin on my belly miraculously disappeared.

So yes! There is hope!
