Hi ... I'm losing a chunk of weight for the second time (don't ask!) .... aiming for 4 stone weight loss, and managed 2.5 stone so far.... I'm 55 but bizarrely not menopausal yet.

My bingo wings and tops of thighs are definitely looking flabby....

What are the best things to do to firm them up and ensure they stay looking as good as possible?

at the mo, I'm
- Skinbrushing every day
- Massaging with bio oil a couple of times a week
- Doing weight-bearing exercise twice a week and walking lots
- Losing at about the rate of 1.5 lbs a week

I think these all help - any thoughts and anything else I can do????

Huge thanks... yup Im still vain at 55 and love looking good in not too many clothes...

You need to do more weightlifting when you're losing weight. 2 days a week won't be enough.

I also suggest cycling, climbing stairs, and swimming. All of them should tone up the wobbly bits.
