How do you prevent loose skin?
Thanks for also responding to this again. People, listen to us. If it's been stretched and you have stretch marks, it WILL NOT GO AWAY. Even if you don't have stretch marks. Please note Glaun said firming your "body", not skin. No matter how hard you pray, massage, take vitamins and use whatever miracle cure is being touted on tv. If you're blessed with good skin, lucky you. But if like me, a former sunbather, obese for over 20 years and old, surgery is your only answer.

Found you on the internet
Ditto to Glaun with an added. It took a long time to gain, it will take time to get rid of it and don't get disappointed if it doesn't happen overnight. It won't. Promise.

If I lost a lb. a day I'd be terrified I was terminal.

And a little nip and tuck if you like.

What Glaun said. Been there done that. There is no miracle cream, brushes, vitamins, etc. Think stretched rubber band.

If Jennifer Lopez can lose 20 pounds, so can we
Lopez situation makes losing simple when you've got the support as eKatherine states. For us, it's truly the desire to push ourselves, depend on our personal support system and have the drive to do it without all the bells and whistles. It's more a challenge for us, therefore, we can be proud of what we've accomplished.

Let's hear from those who've succeeded!
Maunik... you're making this an even better site. Excellent questions and the different responses will be cool. Not my intention to really lose, but couldn't fit my ass into my walker after a total knee replacement, then really looked at myself naked in the mirror. Began walking months prior to that and lost a little, then physical therapy on the recumbent bike after the knee surgery and cut back on food. Started losing. Even getting to 220 was a treat then I saw I could take it further. Prior to that, 3 back surgeries and looking at a 4th. Ortho said to keep losing and strengthening the core/abs and it would further delay surgery. I did it because I could. Failed miserably over the years and quit trying. Thus 246lbs. This time, something clicked. My head was in the right place. During this journey, I never gave up. Frustration, of course. Changing eating plans and trying every diet in the book. Eating off plan, absolutely. Good grief, I'm human and if I was perfect I wouldn't be on this site. But I always jumped back on the wagon, never looking back at what I didn't do or what I could have done and lost more weight. It's been over 30 months to lose 82lbs. A long time compared to most. Advice... be gentle toward yourself. Don't obsess over the food, exercise or losing. Don't set yourself up for failure by setting up unrealistic goals. It will happen in it's own time. Find variety in food and exercise to keep it interesting. My goal wasn't to lose 80 lbs. It was to see if I could lose. And to get healthy. It all came together. If you blow it, s##t happens. Don't give up. I now like how I feel and look. Off almost all meds. Got the ultimate compliment from my great nephew today that made me come home and really look at myself and can honestly say I liked what I saw and decided I'm ready for maintenance though 4lbs. shy of my goal. Self-confidence is back. No longer the "chubbiest" one of the family. 3rd thinnest.:d And the list goes on.

Abs Diet anyone?
Someone once commented that I did a lot of ab/core exercises. This is the reason. An ortho doc told me that if I continued losing (185 at the time) and did strength training, it would put off the surgery indefinitely. Chiro also assists with my adjustments. I became obsessed with losing and strength training. And wish I knew then what I know now. I never would have had any surgeries with the exception of the 3rd one where the T9 collapsed and had to have a kyphoplasty. That was as a result of the fall which caused the back damage.

Abs Diet anyone?
I do a tremendous amount of core/ab strength training. I've had 3 back surgeries and am trying to avoid a 4th by strengthening the muscles in my abs and back. So I do firmly believe that the workouts I've been doing for the past 18 months is helping and though there may not be the "six pack", I've got muscles. I will be doing a bod pod in the next couple of months and will get my percentage of muscles compared to this time last year. Too fat for too long and skin sags. My bikini days are long over.

Abs Diet anyone?
I think most of us are saying you can't focus on your abs alone for reduction and you have to eat healthy no matter what. If the diet looks good to you, try it and see if you can stick with it. Do the exercises. It can't hurt. And like Drag said... we've probably all got a six pack. Somewhere in there. With all the core exercises I do, I know I've got a six.

Abs Diet anyone?
And that's the problem. Getting rid of the fat. Particularly if you were obese like me for many years. I am not happy with the fat roll in the gut, (I can pull it in) but then, no one usually is. And I truly doubt I'll get rid of it as I will never get thin enough as my goal is 158, which I think is good for me.

Books that changed your life!
There are books I've read over the years and know if I were to re-read them again, the message would change to fit my current life.

OMG... I read that book years ago. Dealing with change. A group of us in alanon read it and passed it to each other. It went around the world. We all signed it and gave a comment. Thanks for the reminder.

***You'll never think about doing something for the sole purpose of impressing others again. *** Going to check out Rhapsody to see if they have it. Would love to hear it or read it, but will wait until there is more sunshine in my life.

Anyone meticulously logging their food with a steady weight loss.
There are a variety of weight loss plans out there you can check out. I think FS lists many of them and there are support groups for them. Vickie said she didn't have a goal. Neither did I when I began. I had no thoughts of losing 82 lbs. I thought, boy if I can get down to 225, I'd be happy. But once it started and the clothes started getting baggier and I felt better physically and mentally, I just kept going. I do now have a goal which is 158. Odd #, but I want to have a 2 lb. leeway in the event the old body decides to hold onto something. Maybe that's why it's worked for me. I really didn't consider this a diet. Just working out and learning to eat healthy. Look at many of the folks weight charts. It can be done, but you have to give it your all.

Help!
Hoser... I found an organic 88% cocoa. Wow. A bit too bitter so I know to go down a little. One piece/daily and life is good. 32 calories per piece and lasts 15 days.

Books that changed your life!
Not directly related to food and healthy eating, but "You Can Heal Your Life" by Louise Hay is a book she put together explaining what makes us do the things we do in life, such as overeat, abusing our bodies. She teaches you to learn to love yourself with ideas, attitude changes and many affirmations... In the infinity of life where I am, all is perfect, whole, and complete. Change is the natural law of my life. I welcome change. I am willing to change. I choose to change my thinking. I choose to change the words I use. I move from the old to the new with ease and with joy. It is easier for me to forgive than I thought. Forgiving makes me feel free and light. It is with joy that I learn to love myself more and more. The more resentment I release, the more love I have to express. Changing my thoughts makes me feel good. I am learning to choose to make today a pleasure to experience. All is well in my world.

Help please
Adding to Mummy's final paragraph. Do you honestly think they want you to lose all your weight and stop buying their products. Serious research has gone into their protein bars by lots of folks on this site, proving they stall weight loss. Once they got off of them, their weight went down.

I found that my recumbent bike was my best bet to keep the knee moving and limber. It also helped with cardio and weight loss. Keep up the good work. Walking is excellent eventhough they tell us not to as it overworks the replaced knee.
