After an almost 50 lbs loss I went from double chin to wrinkled old looking neck! If it's not one thing it's another, I am afriad I will have to start wearing turtle necks to cover my turkey neck!

I feel ya on this one. I have a little bit of a wrinkley waddle. I'm always making sure I have my chin up to smooth it out. I'm very self conscious about it!

Oh me too... aging me! BUT... it has gotten better with time. It's still there and a bit wrinkly, but less so than at first.

well, in the long run I guess the wrinkles are better than having 2 or 3 chins!
:D

I agree wholeheartedly!!! I'd rather have "battle scars" from weight loss, than all the fat!!!

One thing that might help over time is to apply moisturizer to your neck area as well as your face. I do this at night and in the morning when I'm putting on the SPF moisturizer for the day. Something that I wish I'd started doing in my 20s. Like you, I'd rather have some extra neck than 2 or 3 chins!
