Today, after finally dropping my weight from an overweight 200 to a slim 135, my skin is now loose everywhere, and stretches about two inches out on my stomach. FML

Save up your money for a skin reduction surgery. you can actually donate the loose skin to burn victims. congrats on the weight loss!

That's common with dramatic weightloss. It's unfortunate, but there is not much you can do about it outside of plastic surgery.

I think you need surgery or something.

good job on the loss, not a fail. Exercise to tighten that skin up, & get the excess skin cut off... that's all the advice I have @ 3:30am...

I don't think it's a fail. good job on the weight loss. exercise to tone it up a bit, & cut off all of that excess skin. it's just going to hang there. I've seen it happen to a few people with drastic weight loss. it's stretched too far to bounce back if after ages of exercising, it hasn't already.

It's not really a fail, it's really unfortunate. When I lost a lot of weight (size 16 to a size 8) that happened to my arms. I have skin there that won't tighten up ever with lifting weights. I feel your pain OP, that sucks.

>Cut off the skin. Brilliant, assistants fetch my scalpel and latest issue of Maxim.

OP- now you can fly!!!

atleast u won't need a towel whenever ur working otu now... just pull that skin and wipe that sweat.... but you might get a breakout of stomach pimples now

woah 61 looks like Yao Ming

Okay op, quit whining and be glad you lost the weight, or gain it back. I love how people complain about being fat, make the effort to change it, and complain about that too. FYL, glad you lost the weight, and hope it all works out for you(:

Looks more like a stud man to me. He is so very cool. WOW.

There is something wrong with you... fail.

That comment was for 61. Oops.

I Guess you could say *puts on shades* He/She got more than he/she bargined for YEAHHHH!

This is definately not a fail. OP, I know how it feels. I went from 220 to 130, by going to the gym and eating less. I assumed the skin would shrink with me, but it didn't right away. I've had the weight off for 3 years and still have stretch marks, but the skin has tightened up quite a bit. Just be patient keep, working out and congratulations on the weight loss.

I think op just wants to brag. So now your neck looks like a vagina?

Or William Hung. Ah, they all look alike. Nvm

Finally some good advice.

no worries, the skin will actually tighten up by itself (at least it did for me)

i think its great that u can lose thay much weight, congrats.

you. you are the fail.

the skin wouldn't be like that from lipo.

I withdraw my previous comment

A simple staple job could fix OP's problem.

No, what's gross is when you have an English teacher who is still large but has this condition, and she slaps you with her arm folds in the mouth while pointing at something on your computer monitor. I haven't eaten jello since.

That's pretty interesting about the burn victims, good to know!

What do they use the fat for?

They make soap.

They make soap. My post would be funny if it was submitted one minute ago.

89, no. Keep going.

Not true. Google "donate skin" and you'll fin that it's an urban legend. OP-try going from 265 to 125 and THEN I might feel sorry for you and your saggy skin. Tummy tucks run about 10 grand. Get one or get over it.

Not everyone has an extra $10,000 laying around for cosmetic surgery. Damn.

115, you can absolutely donate skin! When you chose to be an organ donor skin is one of the categories along with eyes and organs and such. Its tue you can't go into a hospital and say " wanna take my skin", but you can donate healthy skin after its been removed.

#141 hence why they said that OP should SAVE up for the surgery.

I think that's sexy...

ya, extra flab for the pushin:D

Nice abs 17 :D

s hwanc is fancy

Or time....

you can get it removed and some insurances pay for it...but only if they think the excess skin will cause problems...like rotting D=

Rotting, nine? Dx Anyways, OP, once you get that extra skin off, you'll have lost some more weight and be well past your gold. Always look on the bright side of life....doo-doo doo doo doo-doo...

well at least there's ways to get that fixed.
