Losing weight in cheeks

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight in cheeks


199373 tn?1270487632 I gave birth 2 months ago, and I'm losing weight at a semi-slow pace (I'm breastfeeding so I cannot overdo it). I ordered an elliptical, and plan to workout on it for atleast 30 mins a day. I seem to be losing well in all places but my face and arms. Any advice on how to trim these two areas? Or should I just be patient?
Avatar m tn It seems when I am dieting and losing a lot of weight my nose gets smaller I mean it doesnt change its shape but its less wider, less puffier than when I am fatter, I was told though the nose doesnt change at all with weight changes, but it looks different when I am slimmer than when I was larger, is it true the nose shrinks a bit as you lose weight?
Avatar n tn My daughter has always been a picky although healthy eater, but she has begun holding all foods in her mouth and cheeks until it is liquified, and/or chews her food into tiny pieces before swallowing. She barely ate one of her favorite foods (sesame chicken) saying it was too crunchy or hard. We have tried ignoring it, as well as talking to her about it, but it seems to be getting worse. She is losing weight now, and was pretty slim to begin with.
3229119 tn?1347503299 Are you going to breast feed? I've heard tooooons if women say it really helps with losing weight and helps your vagina heal better. I plan on trying to do so for at least 3 months, if i can go longer great! But I'm also going to buy this Nike Workout game for xbox Kinect and try to work out a few times a week. Lol i wouldn't know why your cheeks feel big? Maybe just from the weight gain, so they feel big to you lol.
Avatar n tn I'm 27, I've had dark circles around my eyes since I was 13 and then the dark cheeks came when I was around 16. From then to now I've observed my situation and realized that weight gain worsens the dark areas so try losing weight if ur not fit you'll def see a change. Always wear sunscreen, spf35 is what I use, and always keep ur face moisturized and ur body hydrated with water. Reduce salt intake and I promise you'll see a chance.
Avatar n tn about me: 21 , heterosexual male, and i have bad health. About a Month ago i took an OraQuick Rapid Test for H.I.V. (the blood draw one) and The Results were "NEGATIVE". Reason i took it: for the last two years i've been having weight loss in my face like my cheeks narrow, my face use to be fuller, and i get colds and sore throats easy, headaches, chestpain, eye twitches. Before I took the H.I.V. Test it had been 3 Years since i had unprotected sex.
Avatar m tn One should think of parotitis(Parotid gland swelling) also in relationship to oral hygene especially in smokers. Do you play wind instruments? (Pneumoparotitis).
Avatar m tn Hello and thanks in advance for your attention, - sorry for the cramped text, caracter limit problem. In the past recent months I have applied more that occasionally applied a cream for cellulite treatment over my face, although it was not intended for that use. I thought that maybe it would help have a thinner appearance faster if I did so. And to work, it did work. The problem is that it never stopped working , and I am now stuck with a face too thin that doesn't seem able to retain fat.
Avatar n tn I am 9 weeks pregnant and this is my first pregnancy and instead of gaining weight I am losing weight. I haven't had any nausea or vomiting in the past 2 days but I am still losing weight. I am scared that this could affect my baby. Is there something wrong or is this normal ?
Avatar n tn Hi there, Hope you are doing well. A good dietary regime and exercises all will be helpful in losing weight. Losing weight in a healthy way is important for maintaining the glow of your skin. Eat lots of fruits, dark green leafy vegetables, fruits and consume less of potato, sweetened and processed foods. Start your day by drinking lemon juice in warm water. Have fruits with lots of vitamin C in breakfast that will help you cut fats as vitamin C is a fat burner.
Avatar f tn Hello there, It would be really dangerous to you to lose that much weight, ie 15 lbs in 2 weeks. A good amount of weight is about 2 lbs per week. The middle of August is about 4 weeks away. Even in 4 weeks, unless you go on what I would call a drastic diet or a starvation diet which would probably put your body in shock, you can't lose 15 lbs in a healthy way. Some people might think that if you drastically reduce your calorie intake, the weight will just fall off you. This is not true.
Avatar f tn I cannot exercise a whole lot do to a medical condition where I suffer from daily headaches and pressure in my head. Losing weight will actually help this condition. Besides my overall health, this is why it is so important that I lose weight. I have lost weight in the past, but always seem to gain it back. I think that I was not eating enough calories. i was staying at about 1000 a day. I lost 70 pounds, but gained it all back plus a lot more.
29837 tn?1414534648 This is the weight I weighed at 27 years old. For many years now, my weight has been 185. The now weight of 175 lbs. is a loss of 17 lbs. in less than 3 weeks after leaving the hospital. Funny thing is, my appetite is ravenous, my blood tests all came beck fine last week, as well as still cleared of Hep C. My energy level is normal I've heard somewhere that because muscle weighs, it has to be taken into consideration when weighing someone.
Avatar f tn Its good you've set a goal and are looking to find out how to achieve it! However losing 15 pounds in a month is unrealistic and unhealthy. Did you know it takes about a year for your body to adjust to losing 10 pounds? It's important to remember weight loss is a marathon and not a sprint. In order to lose weight and keep it off, you shouldn't look at it as weight loss but a way to become healthier!
5147790 tn?1364304489 t that hypothyroidism, insulin resistance or PCOS, all of which can cause weight gain and/or make losing next to impossible. Good luck and keep posting.
9455625 tn?1412820762 No losing weight is actually normal if not in excessive amounts
Avatar f tn I am a little bit chubby and i want to lose 9 kg in fastest amount of time to still be healthy. So i don't support starving and belive in moderation. I want to lose this weight till the end of 2014 anybody have any ideas?
Avatar f tn I'm due April 24th and I've lost 20lbs since I found out at 6 weeks and am continuing to lose weight. My OB said that as long as I'm losing the weight in a healthy manner then all is good.
Avatar f tn Yes it's normal to lose weight while pregnant. I lost weight the first trimester and my doctor didn't worry as long as baby is growing. Just eat healthy and stay active! !
Avatar f tn I'm a little confused. Is anyone else losing weight? I'm 11weeks 5days. My weight before pregnancy was 180. 6weeks prego my weight was 168, 8weeks was 161, today i'm at 155. I thought in the beginning it was from morning sickness and being actually sick, but for 3 weeks i haven't had a lot of morning sickness since i started drinking sprite and i haven't been sick. I thought for sure by mid 11 weeks i would have gained at least a pound or two. Am I the only one losing?
Avatar n tn As the first comment correctly stated, losing weight fast doesn't last and leaves you weaker, which you don't want to be if you're getting ready for basic training. Why not wait to join the military until you're ready?
11100381 tn?1436779908 I am at week 10, and instead of the morning sickness getting better, it's getting worse. I went from massive fruit cravings, to eating pancakes now and then, to eating portions about half a sandwhich, and now, I can barely eat a piece of toast. I was drinking ensure to make up for what I havn't been eating, but now I can't stomach even that. I feel so hungry and everytime I try to eat, my stomach screams in pain at me and I usually end up throwing it up.
Avatar f tn I have also lost 3 inches around my bust but gained 2 inches around my baby bump within the last 2 weeks! I am plus size so losing weight is exciting but is it NORMAL!? I feel fantastic no more morning sickness. So where is it going?
