Question As you age you have to choose between your face and your [email protected]@

Hi everyone - I am wondering if anyone noticed that saying "As you age you have to choose between your face and your [email protected]@" is actually right?

I have recently lost 20 lb (150->130lb), not a very big loss, but as I am 5 lb from my goal, I start noticing some new wrinkles on my face that I didn't see before. My face is definitely slimmer, which is great, but I didn't expect to have older look on me with slimier figure. Now I am questioning my final 5 lb loss, maybe I should keep it and have more youthful facial appearance?

What is your experience?

I would say it tends to be true. My sister's SIL is a size 00 and does excessive things to stay that way While she has no butt, her face is sunken, craggy, she had dark circles under her eyes and she looks far older than she is (late 40's). And with no real body fat on her, she has a little boy's stick straight body except for the 2 fake plastic cantelopes on her chest. It's not a good look. When it comes right down to it - it's all about balance. If you are too thin it makes you look haggard and ages you and if you are too chubby, it puts a big strain on joints and organs and gives you alot of pain. Ideally if you can stay 10 pounds within your goal weight, that's a perfect match.

You might also want to consider some toning and moisturizing face creams and above all stay out of the sun. If you were a sun worshiper in your younger years, you will pay for it later in life. Mr. Sun asks a high price for that golden tan.

And congrats on your weight loss!

What some people use is cosmetic dermatological intervention. AKA “fillers.” They plump up sagging areas of the face,....sometimes and if administered correctly. A friend of mine had some put in and loved it. Said it lasts for up to two years. She does appear younger than her actual age. She said it got rid of bags and sags under her eyes and plumped up wrinkles around her mouth and nose. Sounds great, but I didn’t ask what it costs.

I'm curious if you're on a low-fat diet? That (and dehydration) can really affect collagen and elasticity. The skin is one of the first places your body will sacrifice things to keep your internal systems going well.

I think that some helthy weight is ok, for the body and for the face.

Too much weight makes people looking older than they really are, doesn't it?

It depends what you target goal is but I would be rather a little bit over my goal but have a nice face than being on the goal with unhelthy look in my face...

The frist description of to thin lady with fake tits made me thinking, thank you for that post.

My problem is that I have to choose betweein my goal weight and my TITS! I think I will have to "do" that sags that will stay after loosing weight! Just skin sagging ....that is my experince...
