Down to my target weight after doing lo carbs. Was very happy until I caught a glimpse of my saggy wrinkly stomach in the mirror. I swear, I look like an old person! Am begining to wonder if I looked better with a bit of fat there!
I've lost a lot of weight and was feeling pretty good about myself until DD1 announced innocently the other day that, 'your bottom is all wrinkly, mummy!'
I'm not too worried, as in clothes I think I look ok, but have started back at the gym and am also starting to see some improvement. My tummy is covered in stretch marks too from two big babies, so I am truly a sight to behold!
How old are you (if that's not too rude of me to ask!) I'm 40, which I think makes my skin leas ping-y, if you know what I mean.
Thanks verso. I do look better in clothes but I'm 47. Having said that I do look younger. well, except for my tummy skin..which has always been pingy in the past..and now obviously isn't Are there any creams I could use, do you know? Is it a matter of time? Does baggy skin eventually go shrink once it realises it hasn't got a use-value any more? LOL!
I'm hoping it does shrink eventually, yes! Some people say body brushing is v good, so you could try that maybe? How recently did you lose the weight? I'm on a weight loss forum elsewhere and some women say their skin got a lot better after a year or so. How much did you lose? If it was a lot, then I'd say try to be patient if you can!
I was on a lo-carb diet and lost about a stone. I followed a lo carb thread on here which was great support. I also run which means I ahve very toned legs and a saggy belly LOL. A year seems an awful long time to wait ;(
I have been using skin firming cream all over and also scar serum on my tummy. There is an improvement, and also I am now very toned including tummy (can see definition) as I have managed to get rid of belly fat (diet) & do loads of abs exercises but TBH its still a bit crinkly and I expect it will stay that way.
I'm convinced This Works stretch mark oil has made a difference to the skintone of my tummy. It just seems smoother... Also started pilates a month ago and this is helping to tighten my tummy and waist.
