Proud but Worried

Thursday, May 24, 2018

So, I'm very proud of myself for losing 40 lbs, so far. I know I am healthier and happier with each pound I lose. But, I'm starting to worry. I look in the mirror and I see the excess skin just hanging there. I can see my muscles but those do not fill out the loose skin. I still have at least 80 pounds to go. I don't know what I'm going to do with all the excess skin. I've looked into a body lift and that's over $5,000. I don't have that kind of money. On one hand I'm loving getting thinner and healthier but what problems am I going to face with all that skin? I'm really worried.

    40 lbs is awesome! I've purposely followed successful losers on different SM sites dealing with that out of concern for the amounts I need to lose and likelihood I may also face, with all manner of ways they address & deal with. One overwhelming message I see in all is that the gained health and vitality of losing the weight was worth it to them.
