    I Started at about 400 and am at around 185 now and yeah loose skin is a real issue for me, I'm not sure nothing short of a surgery I can't afford will help me.

    Do I love it? No. Would I rather be 73# heavier. Hell no.

    I'm Kind of the opposite,I lost weight because I thought it would make me feel more comfortable with my body,But having a large amount of loose skin, I honestly feel more unsure of myself than when I was at my heaviest.

    I'm down 80 lbs so far. I don't have any loose skin I'm aware of. Though I've lost it over the course of 3 years. Maybe thats why?

    I’m 5’3”, lost 44 pounds from 173-129, age 63. I’ve been maintaining since the beginning of October. I have loose skin on my upper arms, thighs and stomach (but I’ve also had 2 abdominal surgeries).
    My arms have shown improvement, the other areas not so much but I’m still much happier at this weight —and if I’m stuck with my skin the way it is, it’s worth it.
    One positive I can report is that my face is filling back out a bit from when I first reached my current weight.

    My weight loss so far has taken me just slightly over 3 years (86 pounds). I'm taking it very slow and weight lifting, I still have loose skin. Genetics etc play into it too, as well as rate of loss, and height to weight ratio etc

    204 down to 140 so far. 31 5’4” only a tiny bit on my triceps. That’s going away though. Don’t expect any elsewhere

    You must feel much healthier though? Being able to move, sit and get up comfortably compensates for loose skin surely?
