    Whoah: Nice work!

    I hope some of the "so worried I'll have masses of loose skin" people are paying attention. You look gorgeous! :)

    lol thank you! But to be honest, there's tons of loose skin there. I can make the skin on my arm "clap" it's so floppy. BUT STILL no one looks at my arm now and first thinks "omg loose skin" (unless I'm showing the flappy arm trick). At the end of the day, a healthy body size still ends up looking far more attractive than taut skin filled with fat -- I can't undo the fact that I've stretched things out, but that doesn't matter. I still look better thinner.

    Exactly my point. I'm 62, lost 1/3 of my body weight a couple of years ago. There's some loose skin for me, but minor - eapecially after 2 years in maintenance. But a lot of people - mid-weight-loss - when the squishy/floppy fat is the worst, still dragging things down gravitationally - imagine that the end result will be *awful*. It's mostly not! :)

    P.S. Flappy arm trick is usually mostly relaxed triceps, not fat/skin. Flex to the msx, check it out. Don't be mis-identifying nice (but relaxed) triceps as skin or fat! ;)
