|Almost two years later and Gretchen looks at least 15 years younger, firmer and more vibrant than ever. She’s gorgeous. Here is her email to me that came with this photo:
Hi Carolyn, I just wanted to say hi and let you know I am still doing the exercises almost every evening. I think it’s been about two years now, if I’m not mistaken. It’s kind of routine now that people assume I am 15 or 20 years younger than I am. This is sometimes embarrassing in a way. People in their early forties think I am their age peer, and flat out don’t believe me when I refer to things that happened long before they were born. I guess I’ll just have to get used to it.
I look too young! Oh my, what a problem.
I do like the way I look, it’s certainly a plus, but I find that I’m doing the exercises mainly as a way to relax the tension out of my face at the end of the day. My face just doesn’t feel right unless I work those muscles. The program is wonderful. I hope a lot of people tell you that. Gretchen
|Here is a photo of Gretchen from December, 2011. She’s been using the CFF system for over 4 years and here is part of the cute note I received from her telling me about her latest experience with how she looks since using Carolyn’s Facial Fitness
“I am doing the 15 minutes of exercises about 4 or 5 times a week, lying on my back in bed when I first wake up, as you recommended. My sisters and I had a reunion this past summer and they were astounded to see that I have no facial wrinkles at all. Of course they will not follow my lead in *anything* but if we reunion again in 10 years maybe they will change their minds, LOL!
I did make up my own exercise for that jawline problem I was asking you about earlier this year. It is just like the Double Chin Tuck, but I do it with my head turned slightly to the side, and stick my tongue out toward that side. I do 100 on one side, then stretch and massage it a little, then do 100 on the other side. In about 12 weeks it totally brought up that little muscle and corrected the problem. (Thank you for this great tip, Gretchen! Note: The little muscle Gretchen refers to is the depressor, anguli oris #17 on the Interactive Muscle Chart. Sometimes referred to as “chipmunk pouches”.)
The whole concept of facial exercises is just excellent and I really have you to thank for my youthful appearance. I’m 62 this year.
Hugs and love,
