[Solved] 13 months Mewing - aged 34 **(20 Month Update)

I made a post about 10 months ago with a side by side image of my first 3 months mewing. I was told to come back after a year, so here we are 13 months into mewing. To be honest, I dont know if there are any structural changes. However, I feel like I have improved my forward head posture and my standing posture. I can now much easier get my tongue on the roof of my mouth. But I still have the problem of one side of my face being bigger than the other. Anyway here is a new side by side taken 1 year apart from each other (I was mewing for one month before the left image). Its hard getting the same angle, this is the best I've got.

Looks like clear progress to me! what was your routine like? Chin tucking? How often? Did your IMW change? Congrats

Sorry but the head tilt is undeniable and I honestly can't see any changes aside from slightly better orbital support and tightening in the skin under the jaw.

What was your routine?

Yes his head is tilted but I believe there has been forward growth since he’s now able to adopt better posture. His neck looks stronger and I’m guessing it looks thicker now from the front. It kind of mirrors @Progress ‘s neck change.

If he were to try and adopt his new posture 13 months ago his chin would be non existent. I’m willing to bet he’s taller now too. 

 I’m a mewing newbie though so I could be wrong. Maybe the vets on here could better interpret. A GIF could help to see if changes occurred.

@robbie343 Yes there is a slight tilt, but I think this is correct neck posture.. or am I wrong? First one seems so wrong now, but back then, I thought that was correct neck posture. I'm still trying to work on my posture and neck by stretching and constant reminders to keep my head up. Maybe I can eventually give more details on what I did soon. As for height, I was always 5' 6", but just got measured now and I'm 5'6 1/4", so I guess I gained a bit! 

Like I said in my original post, my face is asymmetrical, left side is bigger than my right. I think it's because there is more muscle mass on that side; there may even be a cant in my maxilla, I dunno though.

I just wanted to share 2 more side by side pictures. The first one is comparing September 2017 to March 2020. Just keep in mind I didn't start mewing and working on my posture until February of 2019, so that first pic was my normal posture at that time, and as a side note, I was 10 pounds lighter in that Sept 2017 pic. The second set is of my right side profile comparing March 2019 vs. March 2020.

The first picture is terrible for comparison but the second one shows the areas of progress I mentioned earlier. Not bad.

Your nose tip looks to have turned upwards as well.

It's been 7 months since my last post here, so in total I've been mewing for 20 months!
I wanted to post an updated side by side image. Left image is February 2019, right image is October 2020. Cant believe its already been this long.
I have still been mewing this whole time, but the biggest change is that I started working out. I'm 4 months into weight training. I'd like to cut
out as much body fat as possible, and build up more muscle. I've been getting more focused on working on my posture by training back and shoulder muscles,
As well as stretching chest muscles and neck muscles. I want to start incorporating neck training exercises.
That's it for now, maybe I'll post another update at the 24 month mark!

Have you been evaluated for a tongue tie?

No I haven't, but curious why you would ask? I definitely don't have the front tongue tie, but maybe in the back? For some reason I have that annoying double chin, so I have to try extra hard to get the back of my tongue up to eliminate that turkey neck. Wondering if that would be caused by the back of the tongue tie?

@mewtated sounds a lot like me.

If you have a tongue tie, you're probably not making optimal progress as it takes too much effort to get your tongue in the position it actually needs to be in.

I started this journey in 2017 and only 2 months ago was diagnosed with a tongue tie when I went to a DNA appliance dentist.  This whole time I thought there was no way I had a tongue tie, but now that I have a better picture of what's going on, I can see that I haven't been properly "mewing" at all due to a physical inability to get the tongue up as high as it needs to be.

Check out Dr. Zaghi's lectures on YouTube for more info.

@mewtated

your neck posture has improved a lot. You SCM muscles are moving into their optimal position.

what have you been doing to achieve that?

Just shy of 24 months of mewing.. still mewing, but it has become second nature.. meaning I don't think about it anymore.

I got Starecta to try out, nothing negative to report yet. One benefit I've found so far is that it allows the back of my tongue to come up much more easier. I only wear it on and off for about 8 hours a week. Maybe I'll update my Starecta use after using it some more.

Anyway, here's another update photo. First is Feb. 2019, 2nd is Jan. 2021. More photos above in thread for previous journey updates... and sorry for the beard.

If nothing else, your improved tongue posture has reduced the bulge under your chin.  Great work.

Are you mewing in both photos? Your neck and submental area look much better

@robbie343 Yes I was mewing in both. The back of my tongue has gotten way stronger! Left photo is when I first started mewing.. also had more body fat.
