Losing weight loose skin

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight loose skin


Avatar n tn I'm actually losing weight (7 lbs. in one month) on the South Beach Diet, but the thing I'm concerned about is loose flabby skin after weight loss. I read that with the hCG shots your skin also tightens up and so you don't have the flabby skin left ( which is very unsightly). I am 63, so my skin elasticity is pretty well shot - well it does stretch, it just doesn't go back!!! Can anyone who has used the hCG shots tell me if it does help the skin to tighten back up?
Avatar m tn Loose skin is what you will really get if you lose much weight. From what I know, exercise is one way to limit the amount of loose skin. Aside from that, plastic surgery will be the answer to your problem.
Avatar n tn A good dietary regime and exercises all will be helpful in losing weight. Losing weight in a healthy way is important for maintaining the glow of your skin. Eat lots of fruits, dark green leafy vegetables, fruits and consume less of potato, sweetened and processed foods. Start your day by drinking lemon juice in warm water. Have fruits with lots of vitamin C in breakfast that will help you cut fats as vitamin C is a fat burner. Exercise daily for 30-40 minutes like walking or aerobic exercise.
Avatar f tn I'm not sure that's a factor given the amount of weight you intend to lose. At your age, you probably won't have that problem, but as we age, we get loose skin whether we're losing weight or not. Better to lose it now than later. I would imagine that if you incorporate resistance training in your exercise regimen you can work on that, but know that once you do resistance training and gain muscle, you have to maintain it or it will turn into loose skin. Look.
Avatar m tn If you are overweight and you lose a dramatic amount of weight, will you consequently have loose skin? If you do, are there ways to reduce it? Are there ways to prevent it? I'm planning to go on a diet, and was just curious.
Avatar m tn Someone said that if you lose that much weight too rapidly your skin may be loose. Has anyone else heard this or had it happen to them?
Avatar f tn My doctor wants me to loose weight but its cause I am over weight. I lost 3 ponds but gained it all back plus more. So it depends if you are healthy then you shouldn't loose weight.
Avatar f tn t lose more than 10 Ibs per month. Losing too much weight will cause your skin to sag and look flabby, you are better off losing this amount of weight in 4 months . May i ask what is your height and weight currently?
Avatar f tn I want to loose weight and im 126 pounds and im trying to go to 80 pounds but if i loose all this weight will it shrink my rib cage or not??
Avatar n tn i suddenly notice that the flesh in my inner thighs hip and tummy muscles breasts all have started sagging and becoome so loose and my skin has started to wrinkle now itself and i am just 38.
Avatar m tn Following weight loss, if you experience loose skin, is it better to give your skin some time to tighten up as much as it can on its own AND THEN use retin-a cream? Or should you start using retin-a cream throughout your weight loss to aid your skin in snapping back? I am wondering because I am scared of using retin-a cream too early which will result in my skin's natural ability to snap back on its own and become completely reliant on retin-a cream.
Avatar f tn t want to lose weight fast. Losing weight fast leads to saggy baggy skin. Lose it nice and slow, just like you put it on. One pound at a time.
Avatar f tn ) Plus, I was 10 lbs. heavier than I should have been when i got pregnant. So really... I have another 24 lbs to go. S UCKS! To be honest with you, I haven't done a thing to loose the weight other than breast feed. My husband and I have good eating habits, so I really wouldn't change much there. I really need to get a move on it because I have heard that the longer you wait to work on your post baby weight, the longer it will take to get it off.
Avatar f tn The key to losing fat belly is self-motivation, exercise, eating a more healthy diet and consuming fewer calories than you use up. You can also add skin products like thermofit for losing weight or body wraps for tighter appearance of your tummy. Be positive that you'll eventually loose it.
Avatar f tn It is normal for some women to loose weight. I lost weight with my first two kids. This time around i've lost 40 lbs and i'm 26 weeks along. My doctor says as long as i'm keeping liquids down thats the most important.
Avatar f tn Too fast weight loss can cause rebound weight gain. Also, it can cause other problems such as loose skin, flabs at unwanted places etc. Apart from losing weight, you need to tone up the body. A combination of aerobic, strength training and stretches works best. Many people find it difficult to fit an exercise regimen into their lives. The best way is to join a nutrition expert and a physical trainer (or a gym) and follow their advice.
Avatar f tn When you tone muscle it becomes a heavy mass, heavier than fat, therefore you will weight more but as you said losing inches. This is totally normal and healthy! Im a qualified personal trainer and what you described there is totally normal, your losing weight in a healthy manner which is hard to do so fair play to you, keep it up! The thyroid will set you back and losing weight will take longer! If you are worried and need any advice you can PM me!

Avatar f tn ve been steadily losing weight over the past few days even though I eat at least 3 meals a day (3 normal portioned meals, or 5 small meals). When I first weighed myself when I found out I was pregnant, I was about 145. Then when I went to the doctor 2 weeks ago I was 140, now I'm 137. Anyone else going through weird things like this? Oh and keep in mind I'm constipated, so I feel like I should weigh more?
1974283 tn?1425609124 When I was 16 I lost 80lbs, so I had loose skin. When I was 18 I got put on prednisone and parts of my body stretched out that I thought wouldn't.. I gained about 80lbs in two weeks and then when off the prednisone I lost it in 5 months or so. Now I have crazy lose skin and I was wondering if there anything that actually works that I can try using. Most lotions make me break out in hives. I already avoid sun exposure because I'm on immunosuppressants for colitis..
