With my recent additional weight loss, parts of my face, arms and other areas on my lovely body have gotten stretched slightly. And by stretched I mean, sagging. Most importantly, I finally am showing what I used to have, a neck. Yes, a neck. Parts of my once double chin, has turned into — well — an unsightly gaggle, very much like a turkey’s neck. I’m not too pleased with this saggy gaggle I now sport but I do not wish to every have no neck and only a double chin to have people gawk at.
I reached out to several of my healthier friends who are thin and mega healthy. I inquired if there were any type of exercises to get rid of said saggy gaggle I now sport but no, nothing they can think of. So I did my own Google research and found that by consuming Collagen Peptides, a protein, can perhaps help with the elasticity of my skin below my chin.
There are a lot of very expensive “brands” out there for this type of protein powder and if you know anything about me, you know I like to buy cheap. So I found this brand (see photo to the right) on Amazon. I believe it was $19.00. I have been using it daily for a little over two weeks now. It literally has no taste. I mix mine with orange juice, my smoothies or mix it up with yogurt. I’ve even put it in soups that I make. One scoop a day.

As the site brags, one scoop a day promotes:
- Lose weight
- Heal your gut
- Build stronger bones and joints
- Get youthful, glowing skin, hair, and nails
While there is no promise that I will lose my saggy gaggle underneath my chin, I have had issues prior to gut issues so I already can tell a difference in the past two weeks. I also can tell how it’s making my hair grow longer (remember I’m growing out my pixie for the 5th time in 5 years and never have gotten past the 5 month mark before I chop it all off back to a pixie). Using this product also helps stabilizes my blood sugar.
Overall, it’s a win win for me.
