Stephy don't give up hun !!
You are doing so well focus on the positive things...getting to your ideal weight will extend your life, you will fit into lovely clothes, you will feel healthy

PLEASE PLEASE don't give up....by getting to your ideal weight you can still look good....

we all have hates about our bodies...but we have to live with it , we can't do anything about them apart from accepting them.......I hate my tummy it will never be the same but guess what...I feel great for losing weight and can't wait till i can go clothes shopping and fill my wardrobe up,,,,,I feel so positive in life now........

I have spent nearly 10yrs moping around after the NHS ruined my body...but I have had to put that in the past and move on hun

Stay strong don't you dare give up, we are here for you xxxxxx

Hi Hon

Don't forget that our skin takes a lot more time to react to losing weight than the rest of us. When I previously lost weight and got down to my target I felt very similarly to how you seem to be now. But over the next few months after getting to goal I moisturised with firming lotion every day, I kept hydrated and I maintained the exercise, and as time went on the 'apron' really improved!!!!! I have already done the child thing and had a couple of ops so I know it will never be perfect, but it definitely got to a place I was ok with.

So my advice is keep doing what you are doing, massage it with a good quality firming lotion and keep the exercise up and you will see a difference over time.
