Well, several of them actually.
I’ve heard this rumbling that once you reach age 40 you have to make a choice; it’s your face or your figure.
Conventional wisdom states that once you lose weight from your face that your fine lines start showing up more or becoming more deep. One might actually develop the dreaded “Turkey Neck”.
I’ll just put it out here. That. FREAKS. ME. OUT.
When I first heard about it I went went to my doctor and asked her about it. She said that tends to be genetic and the one thing about my face is that it’s not overly fat. So she doesn’t think I will need to be pardoned by the President at Thanksgiving time!
But the reality is that I have fine lines as we do as grow older. If you haven’t guessed it already, I’m vain as hell. That means I have no problem going and getting some Botox from time to time on some particular crow’s feet that causes me angst. Botox is injected using tiny little needles and it barely hurts, just a pin prick.
But Turkey neck aside, it’s highly logical that the wrinkles that are currently being puffed out by my subcutaneous fat will be out front for all to see.
So, once I lose the weight is this what my Botox treatments will be like?
Cuz that just ain’t cool!
Would I rather have a few extra lines than a fat ass? Well yes of course. But I’m a bit sulky right now at the knowledge that I am going to look my true age and not the 10 years younger I look now.
This is one part of losing weight I have to really get used to. The shifting and changing of my body and the acceptance that goes along with it.
