  • Keep on walking! Keep up the gopod work, never give up! I bet your skin has tightened more thn you realize...? Try sketcher toning shoes if you haven't already, they work the core muscles, they've made a huge difference in the way my back looks.

  • how old are you? If you're still kind of young, just keep up with the firming lotions & be patient. My brother lost a lot of weight, it took a few years for his skin to tighten back up but he was only 20 when he lost it all. He looks great now!

  • It takes a long time, just keep exercising. Unfortunately, some may not tighten up.
