    Last time I lost 38lbs and whils I LOVED how I looked in clothes, I looked saggy undressed (poor DH, lol!).

    I didn’t have particulary saggy areas as such but allover sagginess/creapiness to all of my skin.

    I have regained 21lbs of the weight and my skin looks plumper (obviously), but at least It doesn’t look so old.

    I’m on day 3 of my restart and was wondering whether there is anyway to overcome this? I realise that whist CD is fab fab fab at losing the weight quickly, my skin doesn’t catch up and looks a bit unattractive.

    If you stay at the lower weight for 3-4 months after refeeding, you will see a huge improvement. But to help things along - post pregnancy cocoa butter and body brushing are my top tips!

    Ooh thank you Sarah :)

    Now at least I hace something to aim for after the diet as I really wasn’t liking the creped skin look.

    Would the moisturiser and body brushing be useful thoughoit the diet too?

    i have been getting through the cocoa butter in huge quantities as well as a preventative measure.

    i've still got some way to go before i'm done but fingers crossed it helps!
