Ugh, okay, I really didn't want to have to ask this because it's quite the embarrassment, but I did a search and to my surprise, there weren't any topics related to double chins.

I have a double chin and I'm overweight. I'm currently working on losing this weight, but I've been told that I won't lose my double chin with just weight loss and body exercises. I was wondering if there are any exercises that I can do to rid me of my double chin. ANY suggestions would be totally great and appreciated. Thank you.

hey, I really don't know if this will help any, b/c I'm not sure how to explain it but I'll try my best.. ok.. tilt your head all the way back and open your mouth then close it, but try to make your bottom lip over lap you to, you should be able to feel it.. My health teacher told me about this one.. I hope it helps you out!

I've heard that pressing the tip of your tongue on the roof of your mouth and applying pressure can tone your jawline. You can feel it. Seems to work for me!

Take your tongue and try to touch your nose for ten seconds. Then repeat you can do it when ever, although you might get some strange looks.

It's also worth bearing in mind that just like some of us (ahem) have fabulous big noses, some people are going to have double chins.

Sometimes, yes, it is about weight and muscle tone, but other times, it may just be one of your features. So, best not to obsess too much.
