Loose Skin and Skin Removal
Friday, June 07, 2013
I love not being fat anymore but I hate my "I used to be Fat" body that I now have.
I swear I say this every morning before my shower.
So far I'm down 100lbs and want to lose another 20-30lbs. I'm really struggling w/ the loose skin, esp on my arms. I'm fine w/ my stomach and legs (for now anyway) but I haaate my arms. They make me so depressed when I look at them. I haven't worn a sleeveless shirt since grade school and I'm dying to wear one but even after all this weight loss I'm just as uncomfortable showing my arms as I was when I was almost 300lbs. I feel like even if I up my arm exercises it's not going to make any difference. I'd love to get skin removal but it's so expensive, you get big scars, and I've read far too many horror stories about problems with healing.
I'm sure I'm not the only one struggling with loose skin---any recommendations/advice? Has anyone had skin removal surgery??
