But has anyone ever been worried that (if you have arOund 100 lbs to lose) that your face would look funny after you lost the weight? Like i don't think I'm drop dead gorgeousnow but I'm afraid that my face is going to look weird skinny lol. .. if you can't tell, I've never been thin. This is me and my brother. I'm going to lose the weight whether or not my face looks weird I'm just Wondering if this is something other people think about. . Haha

I'm not worried, more like excited. I've never gotten used to how fat my face looks now, so it'll be nice to see it be normal again.

Looks like you have some pretty great cheekbones :) Dont worry about it, and its not stupid. I lost 70 lbs in a little less than a year, and yes my face changed but i still LOOK the SAME you know?? like im still me :)

i think you'll look fine. just keep an eye on it and if you think your face is starting to get "weird skinny" then maybe you met your weightloss goal?

You'll look a little different, but not weird.  And it's somewhat gradual so you'd get used to it as it happens.  My face has slimmed a bit (I've lost 35 lbs so far, probably 80 lbs to go) but I don't think I look weird =)

It will be a gradual change so it won't ever be too weird! lol. I have kind of a thin face so sometimes I think my face is a bit "skinny" but I don't worry about it too much since the benefits are so awesome ;)

And it also depends on the angle. some pics make my face seem really skinny, others not.

1st 2 pics around 220-235 lbs and the other 2 around 130-135.

I wouldn't say I'm worried, but I am definitely curious. I have photos of when I was a teen and relatively thin. I wasn't fit or toned, but I was a good weight. So, I know what my face looked like skinny. Now that I'm in my early twenties, have had four children, and my face has aged/changed a bit, I'm wondering how different I'll look. I know my nose is kind of different from the pregnancies and my skin isn't as nice because of the stress of the past handful of years. I'm looking forward to finding out what the new me looks like though.

I never really worried about how my face was going to lost post weight loss.

110 pounds down and overall I am happier with my face and neck.  The only problem is that I look older than I did---I guess the fat kept the wrinkles pushed out...now that the fat is gone, the wrinkles have appeared.
