107lb down and yes at first my skin felt baggy but the skin has caught up with my weight now, exercising helps I don't use any lotions or potions just shower gel and a body puff

It was about 8 months but I messed around once I got to 12st and stayed the same for about a month and a half then again at 11st. It's always the st brackets that I struggle with lol

Yes this is one of my big worries! Especially my stomach :-( after 2 kids and years of yoyo dieting. But I would have to say that after the first 1st stone and half, it's not as bad as I thought so fingers crossed x

I think excess skin is an issue many of us with a lot to lose think about, I know I do. There really is no difinitive answer because everyone is different. Losing a large amount of weight so quickly will most likely result in some sagginess, but over time the skin should tighten back up. I think doing some strength training/toning exercises can help.

Yep worried!!

Buy I use a body brush every day. Improves tone, appearance, cellulite, lymphatic drainage and gives your skin a blooming good exfoliation! I do it before the bath or shower :) xx

A friend of mine who's 18 lost 12-13st and was left with a lot of sagging skin. Everyone told her that she wouldn't have any excess skin left because of her age but she did!! She had plastic surgery to remove it all... yes at that age!!!

I must admit worry about excess skin too.

I'm taking extra vit E & zinc - which should help the condition of my skin. & I'm moisturising with bio oil as well. Hopefully this will avert the skin problem & I'll bounce back. lol
