If it were an issue and I had been at a reasonable maintained weight for a year, I would figure out how to afford it.

Terri Welcome to the board. I love swimming and I think it is the best full bdy exercise. When in swim indoors in the winter I feel like the luckiest person... SJ

Im already 43 and although my face looks younger I know my body skin just isnt up to contracting as much as it would have to. Ive got breasts like a 70 year old in my opinion - no volume and probably 6 inches lower than they should be or at least where I'd like them. :smileysurprised:

Ive had 2 C-sections 14 years apart and I have that 'apron' belly thing going on. I had quite a large tummy before I started losing weight so it keeps hanging lower as the fat volume decreases. The skin just isnt cooperating with me and jumping back.

Guppy1968-
I have lost 72 pounds so far and I think surgery might be ahead of me. I need to lose another 70 pounds tho. I hope some of my skin can bounce back before surgery time and/or before I'm in my late 30's or 40. I guess I was hoping for a fix, but I know with this process it's hard to find a true fix after so many years and decades of being obese.

Terri-
Welcome back! :) GTW on getting back to a healthy new year. I'm excited to hear all about your new journey.

I've also found some parts of my body are toned and next to it is really lose skin. I'm in my mid 30's and HOPE some of it will bounce back. Enjoy the swimming- that sounds so refreshing!

I have lost 60 pounds and have not had issues with my skin. I lost very slowly, and I work out a lot. SJ

I know there is no realistic way for me to non surgically deal with the loose skin I have. It will surely get worse as I lose more weight. I dont mind surgery - have had enough already to not be very anxious about it. My only concern is the cost that will be involved. I definitely will need my stomach reduced, not sure about the thighs or arms yet and just for my self esteem I want my breasts lifted.

Curious as this is the 100 lbs+ forum...how have any of you that have lost a significant amount already dealt with not having surgery? Im sure creams and toning can only do so much..?

I have a DVR'd episode I do from Sharon Mann. Once I get back into it and lose a little weight I am thinking to take a class. A parent of one of my students teaches a small pilates class that one of my co workers goes to. My co worker is trying to get me to go but I told her maybe in a few months.
