    Hi everyone, I have been lurking here for ages.

    I have lost almost 3 stone and am starting to almost resemble a human being again. I am down from a size 22 to a size 16 but the dreaded jelly belly remains.

    I have a question for the successful dieters out there. Does it ever go and if it does when?

    From what I've heard, weight never goes evenly. There is always one part of you body that waits til the last minute to snap back! You'll get there!

    I'm also worried about this! Scared that if I lose the amount of weight I want to, that I will have loose saggy skin on my tummy and belly :(

    I think it all just depends on the person as to wether the jelly belly will ever go or not after you've lost weight.
    Some people dont have excess skin while others have loads.

    Personally I would rather live with saggy skin and be otherwise healthy than be as big as I am now and at risk of all sorts of health problems.

    Thank you for the all the replies.

    I have been really lucky, so far no loose skin. Which I think is because I have never lost more than 2lbs a week.

    I know I shouldn't be complaining about my stomach considering the fact a few months ago I hated my entire body and now I just hate bits of me:eek:

    Hi and welcome. Not got to the point where I have loose skin but I would rather have loose skin than be overweight
