So, I realize that I am gonna look like a blood hound for a bit after losing 45 pounds (and Still going) But does anyone know how to get rid of "Man Boobs" faster? I know its dumb, but it bugs me. Its bad enough that I look like a pear skin filled with mashed potatoes, but the boobs gotta go. FYI, my legs are good, I am just a pear shaped guy!Laughing

I have lost a significant amount of weight, and have loose skin all over, except my legs. I am going for surgery in a few months to solve this. I am told by my doctor that there really isn't a way to fully compensate other than surgery, or - of course - to simply evaluate whether it's so bad that one can't simply accept it and live with it.

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

I've resigned myself to the fact I must build my upper body in order to balance out that loose skin scenario you are describing - I am also blessed with a "pear" shape...
Goal 1 - 200lbs - reward - Go sky diving...
Goal 2 - 175lbs - reward - get my tattoo...
Goal 3 - enter a 5k before my 40th birthday - reward? Being able to say I did it!!

I'd look into hormones- I think that's a sign of higher estrogen levels in men (yes, you have estrogen too!) You might be able to find some tips to better balance your hormones.
