Hi all, I've been doing slimming world and have so far lost a stone. Really pleased as I've been big for years. I still have 5-stone 11lb to
Lose ( I was 6 stone 11lb overweight! ). My question is, have any of you lost a significant amount of weight such as this and if so, how was your skin afterwards? I'm thinking I will have to live with lots of loose skin. I'm 45, I guess my age may make a difference too. If anyone's willing to share from experience and give me any tips to minimise this problem I'd be really grateful. Thank you 😊

exercise, exercise, exercise
and moisturise
if you get the muscles under the skin toned it will increase bloodflow and encourage your skin to refresh itself to a smaller size

Ah great, thanks. I've just started exercise and have built it up to 3 times a week. Will keep going! Happy new year 😊
