    Hi guys!

    Havent got a century badge yet myself but working towards it!

    Wondered if I could ask you guys a few questions! Your all so inspirational!

    I have 7st 9lbs to loose in total! Or 107lbs so far 2st 12lbs down or 40lbs! So a fair way to go!

    But I'm now worrying about loose skin! After watching a tv show where a girl round about my age (21) lost around 8st ( started at 16) in a year and exercised throughout but had really excessive saggy skin and ended up with surgery!

    Now don't get me wrong I know that's quick!

    I loose 1-2lb a week exercise 3-4x a week usually and am only 21! I'm hoping this will reduce the saggy skin syndrome?

    How have you guys found your skin following such huge (and amazing!) losses?

    Thanks xx

    I'm no expert on this but I think it's just one of them things that come with mass weight loss, you can try sit ups etc to help but I think it's one of them things that it out of our hands.
    I was worried to death about it to start with but now have resigned myself to the fact I will defo have it, but told myself what would I rather have loose skin or be overweight and die in a few years.

    Yes, I had what can only bed described as a skin apron, luckily my skin must be fairly elastic because it sort of shrank away :)

    I have a excess skin on my tummy, legs, and arms. I am 45 and have been walking for exercise and although my body has tones a little I don't think it has made a lot of difference. On the positive not you are only 21 so your skin should be have a lot of elastisity (sp) left in it, so may shrink back. I think as someone else said it is far more important for you to lose the weight then worry to much about the excess skin. When clothed mine is not really noticable. Good luck on your weight loss Journey.... Jo x
