My face is always the first way that people recognize I’ve lost weight. They always say, “I can tell in your face.” Unfortunately, this is not necessarily a good thing as I’ve gotten older. In fact, even when I’ve lost down to what would be considered a healthy weight for me (as I’ve done now), my face has a tendency to look gaunt and older. I get “you’re too skinny” comments from my family. I’m currently 135, and my original goal weight was 145 because I didn’t want my face to look gaunt. However, I’ve kept slowly losing as I’ve tried to figure out my maintenance calories. Now, I’m eating 2100-2200 per day so that I do not lose more because I don’t want to lose more in my face.
When you’re younger, you can get away with it, and usually, losing in one’s face makes a positive difference in one’s appearance.

2) Drink loads of water. Challenge yourself to 12-15 glasses daily. Some people complain that they feel like choking after drinking so much water. It’s all in the mind. Sip it slowly.
3) Increase vitamin C intake from 1,000-3,000 daily. Vitamin C is essential to collagen formation. Drink up on citrus fruit juices—oranges, limes, lemons.
