    Not really. I feel like maybe it sagged a little more right after the weight loss. It's been over 5 yrs now, and I'm also older.

    I don’t have time to locate the photo right now but I will post a comparison shot later. My face did get better after a year.

    My face fills out if I gain a few lbs back but not if I’m just maintaining the weight in which i was “gaunt”

    Yes, I am more wrinkled with the weight off. I started taking collagen supplements about two months ago. I was hoping it would help my other saggy weight loss issue, 85 pounds and on maintenance now for a year and two months.

    I think the collagen has helped my joints thus far, otherwise I may be just wasting my money, time will tell.

    Doe some research and make up your own mind. The below article briefly discusses potential benefits and safety concerns:

    This is sort of funny to me anyway. Been doing the collagen supplement now for about three months. Yesterday my wife asks if I am getting botox injections, which I am not. Not really taken collagen for my dace but...

    @rheddmobile - wow. You clearly have great skin, which helps, but I am knocked out by the difference between first and last pictures. Yes, it's subtle, but very noticeable when compared side by side.

    I’ve only lost 13 lbs so far, but I’m already seeing more lines in my face, and I look older and tired. I’ve read that some people who have seen the same thing, see their face fill back out a little in maintenance. How many have experienced this? I’m hoping it’s temporary, maybe from the calorie deficit? I am 46, so maybe just age? But I’ve seen a definite change in the last two months...
    Thanks!

    Wait till you hit 54 like me 😛 I figure if my face doesn't fill out a little, dealing with that and some squishy skin is much better than the alternative of being obese again!

    ^^ Exactly right. For me, it's not my face, but my neck. Ugh. Suddenly, I'm starting to resemble a mummy (and I don't mean a British mother). I'd rather have wrinkles, though, than a stroke, or be one of those obese older people taking millions of pills to stay alive.

    Edited to add @rheddmobile, you look great and give me hope. Thanks for posting those photos and congrats on your weight loss.

    Ageists! As an old person, I'm hurt by your hateful comments about wrinkles. Every wrinkle, every scar is a badge of honor. Give me a woman with age over a young Italian supermodel sunbathing in her Turin villa any day. Besides,that hollowed-out-heroin-user look is all the rage. Get hip hipster clothes and go with it!

    OP here, thank you for all of your replies. Rheddmobile—you look great, and I can definitely see a difference over time. That’s what I’m hoping for.

    I have looked at the before/afters, including the face edition. Everyone definitely looks better after, but I wouldn’t say everyone looks younger. I do think thinner with a few more wrinkles is better for overall health, longevity, mobility, etc. I was just discouraged that I’ve finally figured out what works for me, and suddenly I have these deep lines on the sides of my mouth, which literally weren’t there 1 to 2 months ago. I ordered the vitamin C someone recommended, and although I’ve looked into collagen supplements, I just can’t bring myself to take them. I’m going to shoot for drinking more organic bone broth, though.

    I wanted to add that I’ve never been in the obese range, only just into “overweight” by BMI. So I can’t say I ever had an obese face, only slightly more filled out. I guess that’s why these lines have surprised me after losing 14 lbs. Saggier neck is happening, too! 😩

    Thanks again, and any more insight is definitely welcome!
