My weight loss=

Two weeks into my new workout routine(the normal 5 days of weight training +3 days of cardio) i have lost 6 pounds and my scars are starting to dissapear!! I still have more to go, want to lose about 5-8 pounds more.......Now i am not saying this will work for everyone, but i have always been thin and over the past year i started gaining weight in my face and other places eusa_wall.gif and at the same time i noticed my acne scars were all of the sudden very noticable........many people on here have said that when you lose weight scars look worse, but i think it depends on the individual......goin from skinny to fat will worsen the scars appearence due to the skin not being stretched anymore.......I will update my progress in a couple of weeks, hopefully by then my second chin will be gone and my scars will look remarkably better!!

I am glad this is working out for you....

Recently, I had the exact opposite happen to me...

I lost 10 pounds and my scars became MORE indented

and looked worse...due to the weight loss in my face.

At first I liked the way my face looked...thinner..etc.

But then...BOOM..I looked all drawn and the scars looked deeper.

I hope this doesnt happen to you too...

Good luck... biggrin.gif

Hi Shabetta...I am naturally thin...5' 6'' -- 125 lbs....I did gain about 10 lbs. over the years due to the antidepressants I was on..(one of the side effects is a sweet tooth..not good.)

So...I was 135..I felt icky..yet everyone told me I looked better.....???

I went off the antidepressants..worked out , much like you and lost 10 lbs.

Now my scars are more noticable...on my somewhat thinner face.

I just ordered a Pizza..LOL ..and am currently on a mission to gain BACK at least 5 lbs..Just to see what happens...
