I guess the baggy skin depends on the elastane in your skin. Sadly the older we get the more we lose. There are some exercises out there that will help but inevitably losing a huge amount of weight very quickly will result in some sagging. I'm 27 so really I should be ok - but I have to lose a lot so I know I'll get some.

Stomach crunches are good for building the muscle in the abdomen - this can aid with saggy-ness. And bicep and triceps curls can aid with bingo wings. x

Well there is Bio-oil - this works really well on stretch marks and can lessen the droppy effect. I have horrific stretch marks as I gained 11 stone in 2 and a half years - no I wasn't just being a pie, I was very ill!

The Bio oil has lessened the stretch marks and therefore tightened up the skin. Just massage it into your troublesome areas before bed and see if that works for you. xx

Heheh Bio Oil can be found in Boots - it's quite pricey but a little goes a long way. I'm worried already about boobs sagging - mine already do! I'm thinking spaniel's ears after weight loss - I may start a Just Giving page, call myself a charity, and get people to donate for a boob lift! *grin* x

Haha, underboobs made me lol! I was worried about stretch makes with the weight loss, i put on 5 stone in pregnancy, i've just lost it (after 17 months) and have two stone to go, hence the LT. Every time i lose weight i get more and more stretch marks, i look like a road map!! I guess its just the lesser of two evils!

I'm worrying about 'sagginess' too. So I've started my battle already: building up the muscles (tight muscles=tight skin), moisturising 2xdaily with firming products i got of the internet, have a nice boob gel, seems to work well! And i read somewhere that body brushing is the best for loose skin, so started on that 1 a day too.

Things like a seaweed wrap are really good for cleansing and toning skin too. Id try the Slendertone again too but keep it on low power till you get used to it I found it very good for the cellulite as well as the muscles last time but it needs to be done in conjunction with aerobic exercise. Swimming is good in this regard too and love makes you beautiful so I suggest you get out some romantic movies and treat yourself like a queen - you'll be glowing! Best of luck with the exercise

as others have mentioned bio oil is great! it cost me £19.99 from boots for a 200ml bottle, but it works really well! just to warn anyone though if you want to buy your bio oil from ebay just be really carefull, alot of scammers sell it on there and it as been diluted down i got scammed with it alot of other customers also got scammed by the same seller :( , when i got it i was like hmmm this is nothing like the one from boots, same bottle etc but everything else was diff and i was £23 out of pocket for it, so just be carefull :) x

You can get something very similiar to bio oil in Aldi's at the mo. They call it re gen oil though. I would assume its the same sort of thing and it costs about £4. Will be getting some myself soon i think.

you can get bio oil for half the price online (not ebay), check salonskincare.co.uk. I got some other cosmetics there, didnt have any problems.
