I am 5’2″ and have what feels life a very random issue when it comes to my weight. If I drop below about 130lb my face starts losing all softness and becomes very angular and does not look feminine at all. Unfortunately at 130lb I still have too much softness in the rest of my body. I feel like I am in a lose lose situation, have a slammin body and look like a man from the neck up or have a so so body but feel like a woman when I look in the mirror. Does anyone relate and if so, how do you make peace with the isssue?

You cant, at least not really
But you can lift weights to get in shape. A lb of muscle takes up less space than a lb of fat, so even without losing much weight (IE keep some in your face) you can still lose size in the rest of your body significantly.

if you’re anything like me, just drink alcohol and eat a lot of salt – boom puffy face!
but seriously, there’s probably not a lot you can do. We can’t control how we gain or lose weight on our bodies. That said, an angular face can be quite exquisite – think of all the models with sharp jaw lines and cheek bones. And a haircut can do wonders for softening a look – soft layers around the face and softly layered bangs may help.

@babu22: Thank you. Here is my angular face. I don’t fancy myself as being attractive but I can see that there are some features that are non-masculine.

I wish I knew so I could do the opposite! I’d love for my face to thin out a little bit.

There really isn’t such a thing as targetted weight loss.

Just be happy with what features you were born with…celebrate being healthy and beautiful inside and out!

You can’t really control how your face will change with weight loss. I wish it were possible, though! My face looks better a little softer too!
You can, however, learn to manipulate the appearance of your angles with different make up techniques. Do some searching on contouring and such.
And btw..there is nothing about you that looks masculine in that picture, pretty girl!

I have the opposite problem. In order to not have a chubby face I have to get thinner than I like. The grass isn’t greener over here. But seriously, your face is neither especially angular nor at all masculine!

They say that your face is the last place you put weight on and the last to lose it…
but I would say to tone up and do some weights

@MrsFuzzyFace: Okay… I’ve looked at your picture, and you’re beautiful. There is no way that you could look anything but feminine no matter how thin your face becomes. You have lovely cheek bones that will never allow you to look masculine.

I notice that my face looks thinner and more angular when I’m dehydrated. If you are working out a lot make sure you are drinking enough water. And it can be more for some people than others. I also notice a difference when I cut the fat out of my diet. If I’m eating a moderate amount of fat and protien and limitting processed carbs, my face looks fuller and healthier. And my hair looks better too! Good luck!
