    Hi y'all

    Has anyone got tips for reducing loose skin as the weight comes off?

    I've read Dietgirl's advice (thanks for the tip Kally, very interesting) but can't see me doing much weight lifting until I lose a bit more.

    I'm suffering with this issue
    not a pretty sight naked at all got more folds
    of skin than a Shar Pei I have.

    Someone gave me some toning exercises to do
    and while they did wonders with the bingo wings
    they've done nothing on the midrift areas at all

    Susie, I also think age plays a big factor
    the younger you are the more elastic the skin is
    as you get older I think you just have to except it
    apart from going under the knife * shudders *

    Drink, drink, drink... get that water down yr neck as that helps your skins elasticity & making sure that yr eating enough protein, times yr weight in lbs by 0.6 & thats how much protein you should be consuming, both of these make a huge difference to saggy skin!

    Bingo wings... I have just invested in a shake weight!! Don't be rude Jim... yes it looks very falic!

    I'm planning to focus on the eating part until after Christmas, with walking as my main exercise, and then as my Christmas present to myself, I'm going to hire a personal trainer for a while and get some weights work going :)
