You might not be able to get rid of it altogether but it does get better with time if you put the work in. I do quite a bit of strength training with fairly heavy weights and have seen a noticeable difference, especially in my arms, which have very little flab left, and my inner thighs, which continue to improve. The most stubborn part is my stomach, which seems to be not only where my fat likes to settle first and stick around the longest, but also where my most annoying extra skin lives. Doing high intensity intervals, including burpees and mountain climbers, also seem to help reduce my extra stomach skin for some reason. It has continued to improve over time, but I don't know if it will ever all go away. In addition to the weight training, I also use a heavy moisturizing lotions on my bits of extra skin and where I have stretch marks. It seems to give the appearance of more tone and makes the stretch marks a bit less noticeable, even if the effect is only temporary.
