Need Advice.....

Friday, December 30, 2011

As I sit here and make my goals for 2012, I can't help but be a wee bit nervous. My goal is to ultimately lose 160lbs total. I am about only around 20lbs in, so there has not been any significant changes in my body yet. That is perfectly okay though for now, since I have such a large amount to lose off my 5 ft 4 in frame. I would like to know from those that have lost a large amount of weight is what works for tightening the loose skin. One of my Spark Friends suggested using a product from a line that I already use, because it worked for her, so I will be investing in this product really soon. I recently bought lotion, so I will be using all of that first. I do not believe in waste. LOL! Here is the product she suggested:

I have recently added strength training to my routine, so I know replacing fat with muscle will help as well. I am drinking plenty of water, but I am not really consistent. I plan to become more consistent and increase my intake to half my weight in ounces daily. Does anyone else have any more suggestions?

    First a funny story. My friend called me while she was driving to my house asking me to go to the movie. I had just left the gym and was about to shower so that we great. She got there and started rushing me and told me to skip the lotion. I did but by the time I got to the car I was itching. I had on a dress and I knew she had lotion in her purse. I had my feet on her dashboard and I used all of her purse lotion. I was sitting there like I hadn't done anything and she said oh yeah thanks for using all my lotion. lol We still laugh at that.

    Okay, have you ever heard "Black don't crack"? Well, for the most, this is true. We don't. He bless us with good tough skin. lol If you are losing weight at a steady rate 2-3 lbs a week, eating healthy, drinking H2O, and exercising you should have a major problem. Race, genetics, age, and other things play a big part but please don't let this discourage you. I lose 86 lbs, I'm older than you and I do not have a lot of sagging. What I define as sagging my friends laugh at me and show me theirs.

    Stay motivated! You can do this!

    I am really bad about moisturizing, especially in the Fall/Winter since everything is usually covered. One of my 2012 goals will be to moisturize twice daily. I know this will require me getting up a little earlier in the mornings, but I really need to start taking better care of my skin.

    I hope they work for you. I got rid of over 80 pounds and still have loose skin. I'm not consistent in using lotion though.
