    OMG- saw this thread and thought an old "friend" of the boards had returned under a new name.
    I'm going to wait for a CDC to come along and give their brilliant advice regarding saggy skin but i'm going to give you your own personal info:
    Your skin "make up" is in built, your genetics will decide your skin elasticity. If you are going to have loose skin then you will do - if not from weight loss then from old age. If your mother is prone to stretch marks then you'll more than likely have them.

    Personally i'd rather be slim and with excess skin but able to cover up nasty skin with gorgeous slim clothes than wearing a tent for the rest of my life, be uncomfortable in hot weather, and have rolls of fat

    Welsome newbies though! Great place to be is minimins xxxx

    Briefly, people with gastric banding tend to get saggy skin as they're not getting enough nutrients whereas cambridge is 100% what your body needs so your skin will be healthy although what leah says, it's in your genes. Use some lovely moisturiser and hope your gene pool is good. It takes 18 months for your skin to return to the state it will stay too.
    I'm not bothered about skin, my bikini days are over and I can always roll it up and tuck it in my knickersxx
