Default Losing weight and looking so old!

Hi, I'm relatively new here. I'll be 62 in a couple of months. I've been doing really well with my weight loss program, but I am starting to look so much older! I've always had good skin that I've taken care of, and I don't have a lot of age spots or fine wrinkles, but since I've lost the weight I have developed truly alarmingly saggy jowls and turkey neck. It looks like my face is slowly melting down my neck. I know it's just the extra skin that was formerly stretched by fat, but it's so depressing when I look in the mirror.

And it's not just my perception. I never used to get offered seats on the overcrowded bus, but now I get one every time!

I did get an updated shorter haircut which helps a little (at least I got compliments on it).

Is this something that will get better or will my face just continue to "melt down" as I lose more weight. I never thought I'd consider a face lift and I wouldn't do it until I've reached my goal, but I'm starting to really seriously consider it.

Is anyone else having this problem?
