I think it depends on your skin tone. I had lot's of loose skin, especially on my tummy and arms (Genuine bingo wings) but I have been lucky as it has slowly tightened up. Took a couple of years though.

I'm not sure if exercise will help either, I cycle and walk a lot and never had the loose skin on my thighs so maybe it does, my tummy and arms were gross though. ;)

I have been quite lucky so far I gained weight all over even my feet went up a size, since I had my surgery and lost almost two stone it has come off all over as well, hopefully the finished product wont look too bad lol..xx

Think maybe its a bit of a lottery ,:( If you have less to lose, have young skin that you have looked after drink plenty of water it may just sort it self out . Some one described it like a balloon and once blown up never quiet goes back to its original size ,some say if you loose on ww or sw or similar then you dont get the excess skin but I talk to many who lose this way who have the same problem ,so I think its a bit of a lottery but better to be a healthy weight and well than have all the problems that go with been obese .
I have lost a lot of weight and while wearing clothes no one can tell I have excess skin other than on my arms but can wear short sleves and look ok ,so its not as big a problem and Im happy with how I am now the list of pluses from weight lost far out weigh the minus
More energy
PLay with the children
Can walk up stairs /hills without having to stop half way:D
Marathon sex sessions :eek:
No high blood pressure
No heart /cheat pains
Clean bill of health from last to mot at specialist and dont need to go for regular check ups :D
Get chatted up in pub (even got phone number dont tell hubby threw it away:D) made me feel brill
The list goes on the minus is
possible excess skin

DONT STOP YOUR JOURNEY ON SOMETHING THAT MAY NOT HAPPEN XX

Pretty much went away of it's own accord Grom, took a while though, probably a couple of years once I'd reached Maint I think.
