OK TMI Time.

I had what I can only describe as an Apron of skin, It was so loose and floppy, However the good news is that it slowly but surely went, took a while and now it's fine but there was a stage where I did think I might have to go and have surgery to remove it.

Stephen, I agree with the comments about your wife mate.
thanks for that guys/girls its just something like missy iv always wondered about as i didnt want to have a extra pouch to carry around lol youv helped put my mind at ease :)
Having lost ten stones I do have excess skin. I have the apron others speak of. Nothing like the ones you see on those poor huge people on tv after losing 200 pounds! A comparatively small one, but obvious. It doesn't look that good but then, neither did the surplus stones.

I am waiting a year or two before deciding what, if anything, to do about it. Fearful that surgery will either be too expensive, too dangerous, or both. And the scars of even a successful tummy tuck are far from pretty.

I think if we have stretched our skin that badly, and for a long time, we can expect some damage. Those who don't have any are very lucky and yeah they do exist!
I'd wait Girly, my "apron" went, slowly but it did go love.


Loves this site!
Girlie, how long have you been doing atkins for? I hadnt realised you lost so much. I must admit you appeared a little while ago and i thought you were new. Sorry.
