I used to have a very tight, thin stomach. Obviously after my 1st DD it has changed. The skin on my stomach is very loose and wrinkly. I lost all baby weight and got back to 135 lbs after her. Then I got pregnant again 2 yrs later. and same story. my youngest dd is 10 months. and once again im back to 135. My stomach is thin (I always get asked how I look so good after 2 pregnancies) BUT they dont see whats under the shirt. I dont know if it is even possible to tighten the skin but if any of you have done it, how did you do it? I am very self conscious of it. with clothes on Im fine, but I can barely look at myself in the shower or mirror without getting really depressed.
Here are 2 pics. the 1st one Im not tightening my stomach. The 2nd one I am (not sucking in. just tighteing the muscles.)

Without seeing a picture, you can do anything, but you are not going to be able to lose that stretched skin. That requires a tummy tuck. It's really something that cannot be undone with exercise, because it's not the muscle, it's the skin. With lipo, you can get the fat under the skin sucked out, but it still won't touch that lose skin.
