    I'm 20, but worried that if i slim down to my goal (which will equate to a loss of 6st) I'll get saggy skin?

    Think a lot of it's due to age, speed of weight loss, and how elastic your skin is as an individual anyway! You're young and doing SW which should bring a slower loss than some other plans - good omens for your skin not going saggy!!

    I lost four stone, but over a period of about eight years and my skin was o.k. I want to lose another 4st but rather more quickly, so am hoping even if it goes saggy, it will firm up after a while. I'm 72 (but feel 19 most of the time) so.....

    Anyway, I suggest you click and have a read here http://www.minimins.com/gsearch.php?cx=010694533525507175605%3A4jyj6mueyhe&cof=FORID%3A10&ie=UTF-8&q=sw+saggy+skin&sa=Search#1093

    Best of luck :)

    I've lost just over 5 stone hun (between beginning of last may and this january really), so in just over 8 months. I'm not finding my skin going saggy at all, and I'm 26 :) xx

    I am 32 - and have lost over 5 stone. I do quite a bit of exercise and just have a wobbly tummy and bingo wings. I think everyone has wobbly bits though!?
