You can’t just lose weight on any one spot. Spot reduction is a myth. It depends on your own body type–where you keep the weight, where you lose it first, everyone is different. Losing weight overall will help you lose weight in your face, but you can’t pinpoint it there.

The look of a double chin is greatly affected by your posture. I’ve noticed this a lot more as I’ve gotten older (ripe old 30, here). If you sit on the couch and read looking down at a book, for example, you’re bending your neck to one place and just squishing it there. Do that for half an hour, now go look at your neck in a mirror. Big ol’ line! And all that time you’re looking down and developing a fabulous neck wrinkle, the muscles in your neck and chin have gone flaccid. 

I don’t know what your hobbies and habit are (or what your neck looks like), but this could be at least a piece of it. If you’re a reader like I am, prop your book on a pillow on your lap instead of holding it down. When working on your laptop, use a lapdesk to hold it up higher so you’re not cranking your neck. Make sure your desktop monitor is adjusted to the right height (top should be eye-level) and sit up straight. 

Little things can help!

As PP said, you can’t really spot reduce for fat.  A lot of it is posture, but  found that even though I wasn’t overweight before I got into fitness, I did have a chubby face and some extra chin nonsense.  When I toned up and shed body fat, some of it went away.  But for me, a lot of it is genetic- I have fat-face genes.

I’m sure there’s a minor outpatient cosmetic procedure that can help if it really bothers you.

When I cut sugar out for whatever reason (candy, soda, etc.) it really slims my chin and face and general! I don’t know why, but my face puffs up when I’ve been eating sugar.

I feel you… I’ve always been sensitive about my neck/chin – it’s just kind of flabby.  Unfortunately there’s not much you can do.  I lost ten pounds and toned up before my wedding, but I still had a little bit of “the waddle.”  In the end I just made myself get over it, because I figured if I had it when I was in the best shape possible, it’s just part of what I look like.  Also, no one is really focusing on your jaw.  Posture does help – and on the plus side, it’s literally one of the easiest things to fix in Photoshop ๐Ÿ™‚

@lamkky:  Chin liposuction is the only thing I’ve heard of that takes away a hereditary double chin (which I’m assuming you have since you’re underweight). I don’t know if the chin liposuction gets rid of it permanently though.  

Here’s some info about double chin surgery options with a lot doctors tuning in on it: http://www.realself.com/question/what-benefits-chin-liposuction

And here’s some doctors answering a question about double chin exercises: http://www.realself.com/question/double-chin-exercises

Good luck and I am sorry you are going through this. But just know that no matter what, you will be so happy and radiant and in love on your wedding day that it’s totally not possible for you to NOT ooze beautifulness. ;D You’ll have the bride and then newlywed glow!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
