Maybe you had the goal to lose some weight in 2021. Maybe you tried and you just gave up. Or maybe you said 'you know what give me a couple months and I will get back to it'. It doesn't really matter when you start to lose weight.

It can be this month, next month--or, hey! even in December. Just know that while you may feel better about dropping a few pounds you may not get all the results that you want. See, you have to take the good with the bad. Did you know that losing weight can make you look older?

Oh, and not just a little older; people have been said to look much older. Here is the science behind that: When you lose weight you end up losing fat in your face. That sounds like a good move. The problem, though, is it ends up deflating your cheeks. When that happens, your eyes look a bit sunken-in. That combination can really age you.

So how can you fight this? I mean, you want to get healthy. You want to lose a few pounds. The problem is that you do not want to end up looking older. What is the fun in that?

There is a way to make sure that doesn't happen. If you can gradually lose weight you can fight that sunken in face look. If you end up losing a lot of weight at once, people will notice and it may not be for the reasons that you want.
