It's a lose lose!

I'm finally starting to lose weight and I can fit into some old jeans of mine. I know they not really tight on me because I can pull them away from my stomach a couple of inches and I need a belt with them, but the extra skin on my stomach is so nasty! It makes it look like I am trying to squeeze into them! Either I get slinny and have to deal with the extra nast skin or I stay fat! UGH


Just a rant.

If  you are younger, that skin will likely tighten up, at least some.

I can imagine that would be frustrating. You should just focus on being healthy instead. Are you thinking that maybe in the future once youve reached your ideal weight that you may get the skin removed surgically?

Did you lose weight really fast? That usually doesn't happen if you lose it slowly. I'm not an expert, but that's what i've been told by others.

I'm 26. Hopefully it does tone up.

I'm going to look into it. I can't stand the extra skin from the stretch marks.

I have strech marks from having my kids. My stomach is tone under the skin you just can't tell.

Nope. I'm losing it at a normal rate. I'm just not blessed with elasticity and have bad stretch marks. :(
