Loose Skin? (video blog)




I hope this answers your questions about loose skin :)  Please keep the questions coming!  I don't mind sharing.  Hopefully being so open will help y'all with anything you have a problem with or not sure of.

And I didn't even catch "I don't give a rat's ass" lol I must say it a lot to not even notice when I was editing haha

Btw.....the rate you lose weight, what you eat (I hear a lot of "eat clean you won't have loose skin!" Uh huh), whatever lotions you put on your skin, only helps a small tiny fraction, if at all.  It is mainly genetic & how long you've been carrying the extra weight.

I've found lifting weights help make it look better because of the muscle I build underneath.

So save your product sales pitch. I'm not falling for it ;)

  2. Great video, I appreciate your openness and honesty. I too battle with excess skin on my arms, but am not as confident and carefree as you are. Before I lost weight I hid my arms because of my stretch marks. Now with the excess, I REALLY have reservations about wearing them out. My excess on my thighs isn't as bad. I made sure to focus alot on lower body when I began my journey. If I ended up having excess removed from my arms, not sure that I wouldn't be self conscious about the scar it'll leave behind. I may just have to live with it and begin to focus more on weightlifting. Congratulations, keep inspiring and motivating. Have a good weekend, and be blessed....Dawn

  8. I have a lot of lose skin around my middle. I gained almost 150lbs having my 9 kids. After my 7th baby I lost 80lbs in nine months but then gained much of it back having more kids. I'm now on my second "transformation" slim down. Hoping this time it sticks even if we are blessed with more kids. The lose skin from fast weight loss can be a bit overwhelming but so worth it. I'd take the lose skin over being almost 300lbs again. You look great btw! Keep up the great work!

  10. We have WW in common, and I also have a bit of loose skin. Mine is mostly attributable to aging as I'm 65 and counting. I also love your "can do" attitude. :)

  11. I am really struggling with my underarms. I can visible see the muscles in have built in my arms and I LOVE it. But as soon as I hold my arms up, the excess skins just hangs. I am able to see the difference in the excess skin from being fatty before and now it is just more of loose skin that is just hanging. I am not against plastic surgery for something like this. However, I am no where near ready for that yet as I am not done working on it. I plan on re-joining CrossFit the beginning of the year.. lets see what happens then. T hanks for all you do. I am starting on my own blog as many of my friends and family tell me on a regular basis that I am an inspiration to them as you are to me.

  12. Just found your page on FB and came to check out your blog. I watched your video and just LOVE your attitude on your body image. I too have loose skin on my arms, tummy & legs, but this summer I wore a tank top for the first time, IN PUBLIC, in a long, long time. I have lost 133 pounds over the last 13 months and YES, the old fashion way too. Diet and exercise!! LOL. I do mostly eat a lower carb menu though and do a variety of workouts. One day I'll do the sitting elliptical for 30 minutes then 45 minutes of strength training, or water jogging 30 minutes & then 30 minutes of water aerobics. Yesterday I did both!! I have also reversed my diabetes as well. My skin is annoying, but losing this weight, well, there is nothing better . I couldn't hardly move before. I am living life again and it feels great. I was going to look into skin removal surgery, but like you can't afford it anyway. Hopefully my body is nice to me and it tightens, at least a little bit anyway. Nice to know I'm not the only one dealing with skin, but being positive about how far we have come. I have about 40 more pounds to go and it's been at a standstill for about 2-1/2 months, but I will never give up!! Keep on keepin on :)

  13. You can cover up loose skin but you can't cover up excessive amounts of weight. People generally don't flaunt their extra kilos, so what are they losing from having loose skin, we don't lose it to show our midriff do we? Especially when they've gained so much in their health, and reduced health risks. I've lost around 43kilos (I think equates to 94 pounds?), I do have loose areas, probably not quite the same, but areas I would prefer not to have but it's about the progress, and the positives... Look at how far you have come, you haven't lost anything, but rather gained self-confidence and health.

    Congratulations :)

  18. Hi Tanee,
    You totally ROCK! I love your great attitude. I really like that it is infectious. I am currently in the 240's, and I have been kinda stressing out about loose skin. Your video helped me to see that my attitude about it is the most important thing. I have never had a supermodel body, even when I was thin. Now, I need to focus on being healthy and focusing on what my body is capable of doing, rather than chasing something hard or impossible to attain.

  19. I too love your attitude. I've fretted a bit about the prospect of the loose skin but it doesn't look as bad as the fat, IMHO. I actually had a doctor tell me I shouldn't lose too much weight because I would have loose skin! Really?

  20. I'm glad that I watched your loose skin video. I too have loose skin after lsoing over 90lbs, especially on my arms and thighs. Living in Florida makes it hard to always cover it up. I just had to wear a sleevless dress as a brides maid in my sisters wedding. The horror! Everybody kept saying how great I looked, but all I could focus on was trying to hide my arms! You have given me the inspiration to try to worry less about it.
