I hope everyone had a fun and healthy Thanksgiving. I joined Fatsecret a couple weeks ago, and I'm impressed with this website and the people here. I'm still getting used to the name. Fatsecret. Neutral

I am following a weight loss regimen of my own design. It has arbitrary guidelines and is based on my knowledge of my body and habits. The weight loss appears to be working, and I feel good. Very good in fact.

I hope to get to know people here a little better, and maybe exchange experience and experiences during weight loss and whatever else might pique our interest. In fact, I'll pose a question now: how does one avoid skin sag after losing 50 lbs? I saw one gentleman's before and after pictures here, and he looks like he lost nearly 100 lbs and now has the physique of a 20 year old. No sagging or lumpy misshapen body lines at all.

I can't remember his name, but aside from regular exertion and exercise, is there anything else that one uses to avoid or at least mitigate a lag in skin elasticity? I use vitamin E oil regularly on my face and neck, and have started using it on my knees which have begun to show the first signs of sag in certain positions.

hello, I just joined a couple of days ago. I sympathise thoroughly with you about the name but then I thought that it is actually cute and reflects what we do about food and why the weight is on us....
Skin is material and needs a material intervention as far as logic goes so exercise and massage would be the only way of dealing with it that I know. For face and neck I use Boots Sanctuary cream day and night jars. It is marvellous and deals with the jowly look that seems to be edging forward on my jaw line. I think we are going to have to accomodate some 'sag' as gravity lets us know its presence. We defied it for so long that I think of my little sags as signs of holding forth!!!! despite the weight of it all.....
good music and sound sleep helps us live well
