The first time I lost 150 lbs (yeah, yeah...I know...) I asked *everyone* about loose skin.

I got the same advice from doctors, nurses, massage therapists, and anyone else that I could ask. Make sure that you keep up a good skin regime while you lose the weight and eventually it just comes down to surgery.

Kinda stinks I know, but it beats the alternative!!

Hey all. I'm looking to fix the problem of loose skin, with preventative methods and ways to fix it once it occurs. With the amount of weight I'm losing, it's almost guaranteed to be a problem. I can't slow my pace down because I'm on a time table, or I'd follow that advice as well.

So here's what I'm doing right now to prevent it:

Constant strength/resistance training to build new muscle for it to adhere to.
Cocoa butter/shea butter lotion daily.
Daily exfoliation.
Vitamin E&A for skin health


Anyone know some other stuff I could do to prevent loose skin? Or anything that can help once I'm down to my goal weight and it's already there?

Your weapons cannot harm me, I'm the JUGGERNAUT! I'll hit you with your own pimp!


When life gives you lemons, BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!!
