1 double chin on Wed Nov 05, 2014 10:43 pm

Hey guys! Since I'm fully weight restored (almost 3 months now) I have a double chin. It isn't only my own false view of myself it's real. Friends told me also about it. And I'm just hoping that it will pass bc it makes me feel ugly and I actually was happy with myself for a time so it ruins a lot. Can it still be waterretention? I've also drunk a lot of tea which will make you loose water and my belly is flatter now but not my face so I think it's fat isn't it? Do you have any experiences about that? Especially the period of time it will last? I'm so frightened it will last forever.
I hope I do not trigger anybody here!!
send you all my love Smile

I get a puffy face often too Wink It's edema / bloating that occurs in recovery and sometimes in normal non-ed life too. Stop checking on it and constantly looking, it is pointless and makes you stressed over something that is really nothing.

It is most likely body dysmorphia and/or temporary water retention. But we also have to remember that double chins are normal. People have them, and go on with their lives. It is like stomach rolls - everyone gets them when leaning forward. It is like cellulites and stretch marks - the majority has them.
For a group of people that are very body-focused (us), we SEE "all the flaws" our bodies have compared to other people... No wait. Other people have the same amount of "flaws", we just don't see them. What do we see when we look at our friends? Do we see the double chins, stomach rolls, cellulite, stretch marks? Or do we see their beauty, their face, their eyes, their awesome style, their personality, their worth?
Just something to think about  sunny
