I was told it may tighten up with time. I don't think any exercise helps because as my stomach get smaller my sagging skin gets more wrinkled :-/ I'm not sure if I'm seeing what I want to see or not but it kind of looks like its gotten a bit better.


Quoting mstkn.identity:

Besides surgery is there no way to get rid of the lose skin?



Quoting HannahLee87:

I was 296 I'm 158 and its pretty bad. Everybody told me tht because I'm young (25) it shouldn't be too bad but I beg to differ lol it may be getting a little better but I see a tuck in my future






Quoting mstkn.identity:

I'm so worried about that. I was 295, now I'm 244 and want to get down to about 150-160 and I'm worried ill have saggy skin :-/







Quoting HannahLee87:

I wish! I have so much loose skin from losing weight it's scary lol










Quoting Ultra_:

No. I was fine until now. NOW I'm going to start working out for our cruise. I don't want to be in a one piece.

Thank you!!..Losing weight was my New Years resolution last January. I went at it full force and I have to say I am proud of myself for sticking with this! I lost my first pregnancy (we TTC for 7 years) in Decemeber at 16 weeks and it led to some emotional eating. I realized I couldn't go back to that place and stepped it up again. I am going to get to 140lbs by summer!!!


Quoting norahsmommy:

You look amazing!! I'm on mfp also. I hate logging when I eat something I shouldn't. It's good motivation. I'm doing low carb/sugar as well. I started at 240 or so 11 months ago after my son was born and am 197 today. The last 15 lbs came off very easy after I started low carbing. My goal is 135 by next year.




Quoting HannahLee87:

I lost 138lbs and I still have about 20 to go! I started at 296 ad I'm currently 158! I'm on a low carb diet, I drink plenty of water and I exercise 4-6 days a week. I track my food on my fitness pal. It really makes me think before I put something in my mouth because I don't want to log it lol

Try vitamin E. I've been told it helps give skin elasticity. Maybe it can help?
