    I think when you lose a considerable amount of weight on any plan there is the chance you will be left with some, but with a little exercise and taking care of your skin it should be ok!

    unfortunely depending on the amount of weight lost, how long you were over weight, ow long it took you to lose the weight, you wil get some loose skin... once its stretch there is no amount of anything that can get rid.. i was really concerned about this when i started dieting but at the end of the day i personally would rather be carrying around a little eccess skin then 10st of extra fat, so i dont worry about it any more

    Its not just people taking Xenical who have excess skin, it all depends on how much weight you lose, how young you are, how fast you lose it, if you do exercise ect......I have lots of spare skin already :eek: and only half way through my journey! but I have been up and down in weight a few times and also having carried 2 kids has not helped lol....small price to pay for losing weight I say, and there is not much we can do about it anyway! some people are lucky some are not as lucky x
