Excess Skin

Postby GwenFan » Tue Sep 18, 2007 9:33 pm

I have around 42kg (at the least) to lose and Im terrified of excess skin.

Im 28 and havent had kids and my doctor seems to think it shouldnt be a problem - can anyone shed some light on this?

for example look at adro from the biggest loser. he needed surgery after losing all that weight, but then again he lost it fairly rapidly. i guess you wont know until you reach your goal.

you are young and if you lose steadily and not too fast you will be fine. Rememebr to always drink heaps of water, as it helps with elasticity, and green tea is said to help too. Invest in a good all body moisturiser too and slather it on after a shower!
Hydrated skin is stretchy shink.
Im 25 and had 35 kg to lose and i havent had skin problems yet *knocks wood*
