Probably harder to lose skin at age 50 but to lose the skin need to get down to a size 6 or 8 not a 14 - there is fat under the skin which is why the extra weight loss can help.

Need to lose the weight very slowly not more than 1 pound a week - but as you say still might not help.

But as you say it might just be a straightforward choice - stay fat or have loose skin.
