People ask me all the time how I managed to lose all that weight and not have loose skin. Well, I DO have loose skin, quite a bit actually. It’s on my thighs, where I carried most of my excess weight. It’s annoying, I won’t lie. I’d love to have nice slender shapely legs, but now that I’ve almost run out of body fat to lose it’s pretty evident that short of major surgery, I’ll likely have this ‘sheath’ of honor for life. Oh well. It is what it is. I still think I’m pretty awesome in general.
Hopefully this helps someone feel less frustrated with their own body. You’re not alone! And it’s not the end of the world.
Edited to add: for those just starting out on a weight loss journey, don’t let this be an excuse not to keep going. I would take excess skin over the health problems my excess fat caused ANY day.
