    Hi Claira, I lost weight very quickly on Atkins about 6 years ago (it doesn't work for me anymore) but was about 40 so older than you. I lose about 3 stone in 4 months. Anyway I didn't have any loose skin then. I'm worried about it now though as I'm older. I'd do lots of toning exercises and, apparently skin doctors recommend Bio Oil for that.

    would be interesting to find out too, im obsessing over firming cream about four times a day and doing my ab king pro and going to buy something off the shopping channel like slendertone but just the shockers instead of the belt.

    It depends how overweight you are to start with. The more you have to lose the greater the chance of your skin having lost some of elasticity and it may not shrink back.

    I have an apron of fat from 2 c-sections. That will not go. I suspect i will try and go for a tummy tuck when i have been at goal a while (should i get there). Will need to rob a bank to get it but...well, we shall see.

    You can improve skin tone with things like bio oil and firming treatments but they will not give the skin backs its elasticity.

    Every person is different as well. So each persons body will respond differently to the weight loss.
