    Hi all

    I was wondering, i have around 5 stone to loose and was thinking if it will leave saggy skin around tummy areas?
    Has anyone got to their target and this has been the case?
    I suppose it depends on how much you have to loose and your skin elasticity?

    Hi Kate

    Yes it really does vary from person to person, how much you have to lose, how long you've been overweight, age etc etc. I lost just over 5 stone and nothing major although I would say I am a big baggy and loose at the seams. Try not to worry too much.

    I think it works the other way round. You get stretch marks when you gain weight quickly. Not sure though:confused: I'm really lucky. I went HUGE when I had my daughter and didnt get one stretchmark. (Garry Your tummy would have looked tiny next to mine:eek:!!) My skin must be stretchy. I'm not sure you can do anything about it. I've no excess skin or stretchmarks. I think I have my mother to thank for that! They do have creams and I suppose it is worth giving it a try. You may be lucky too.....fingers crossed.

    Bio oil is good for skin when your slimming.. or for anything really.. it minimises stretch marks.. and can really help.. i use it all the time..
