Hi, I am 5'2 and weigh 132 lbs. I lost 137 lbs over a course of 4 years, however I have loose (flabby) arms (particularly triceps area) and thighs which develop wrinkles based on certain movements. I am 27 years old. I am looking for the best natural way to tone up. All recommendations are welcome! thank you!

This article sounds like it's written by a five year old. The second picture is loose skin/fat and that person just has thicker skin then the first picture

it was written so everyone can easily understand

the first pic is true loose skin.

the second pic is just flabby arms on an overweight person which can be burnt off doing this

I actually lost weight going on a bodybuilding cutting diet and lifting weights 5 times a week as heavy as possible (at 12 weeks I'm still getting some gains). Additionally, I do 1 day a week of 60 minutes of cardio plus 20-30 minutes of cardio each weight lifting session. I still have a flabby stomach and my inner thigh skin appear looser not tighter. Any additional suggestions on what I might try as, although my old clothes now fit me, I feel my body looks worse. I went from 134 lbs to 124 lbs and am 5'2" tall.

I am 55 year old female and between 178 to 180 pounds size 16/18, I'm a pear shape, I would want to be back down to a size 10 or 12. I need to lose 24 pounds, but when I reduce my calories, I notice after a week that my abdomen is kind of flabby loose, but still has fat. I did take the skin elasticity test, my skin elasticity is that of a 45 to 50 year old (takes 5 seconds to go back),
I work at Home Depot, and tracked my walking during my 8 hour shift and it is exactly between 12,000 to 14,000 steps a day, by the time I get home my lumbar is in pain and my feet feels like needles. The thought of going to an aerobics class or a gym is out of the question since I am exhausted all the time mentally, physically.

Hi Adrian

I'm a 32 year old single woman and have 140lbs to lose. I am 5'2". I am terrified of loose skin. Tips to lose weight safely without risking thin skin? Also, what is a reasonable time frame?

July 21, 2017

Adrian Bryant

loose skin is very hard to get. (re-read this article) what you think is loose skin is more than likely more loose fat you have to lose

Hi I'm female 233 lbs I want to get down to 150-170 and I have a lot of fat. My midsection is where most of my weight is but I have back fat,side boob fat, and also and roll right underneath my breasts which scares me a little bit cause all the before and after of people losing weight they don't have that under their breasts so question is will I lose it? And will I have loose skin? I'm 24 and I've been big all my life

July 18, 2017

Adrian Bryant

you'll lose weight all over with you more than likely losing your belly and hip fat last

Im 46 320lbs 5' 6" How can I work out and lift weights with an umbilical hernia? They won't do surgery until I lose weight but they're telling me not to lift weights. Are there any solutions? Thank you

Even though I am really overweight I wasn't trying actively to lose it. But since I've moved to Arizona where it's really hot and sunny all the time, I have lost 100lbs. I'm 34, 5 foot 5, and I weighed 296 lbs, (the most that I have ever weighed. I now weigh 195 lbs, and I lost the weight in 8 months time. I don't have a car, so I bike to work in the extreme heat, 4miles each way, (8 miles a day) and my work is very fast paced with a lot of heavy lifting. The only other change is I drink a lot more water, and limit pop and junk food. My husband is concerned that I'm losing to much weight too fast. Should I be concerned? I now would like to try to lose more weight and tone up the areas that are flabby now. What exercises would you recommend for continued weight loss and toning? I'd like to get down to at least 150lbs.

it sounds like your new life is good enough for a weight loss plan but no... you are not losing too fast. the more you weigh = the faster you lose weight

I am 5"6 and weigh 270 lbs. I want to go on a diet, and lose weight at a regular pace, I'm not having weight loss surgery or anything. Do obese people who lose weight normally have a lot of loose skin left, or does this usually only happen with people who lose weight rapidly, like after surgery?

March 15, 2017

Adrian Bryant

loose skin is very rare. remember in most cases it is not loose skin but more fat to lose. most loose skin surgies are just a removal of fat

Whitney Gemini

hello, i eat 900 cals per day, exercise 30 mins 4 days per week and i am 140, 5ft 6in, and looking too lose up too 25/30 lbs by april/may. Will i have loose skin and will lotion help with it or no? need too know asap, thank you :)

December 09, 2016

Adrian Bryant

no, its very unlkiely you will and there is no need to just eat 900 cals per day especially if your goal date is in April

December 09, 2016

Tera

Honey, you really need to eat more than 900 calories a day. You're starving yourself if you eat less than 1200 a day. Look up your basal metabolic rate (BMR). If you eat that little, you'll loose a lot of water weight at first and then your body will run out of glucose so it will turn to what muscle you have to sustain itself. You will see no gains with that, I'm afraid.

Hi Adrian I am scared about getting loose skin. I have 75 pounds to lose. What can I do to make sure that this does not happen. I'm 42 years old

March 12, 2017

Adrian Bryant

it is highly unlikely you will get loose skin. maybe loose fat or more fat you have to lose as you lose weight

March 13, 2017

Shannon

I'm 17 and I'm not fat but my stomach has more fat on it than I'd like and I feel like my hips ate beginning to over flow. I'm very worried about it and stopped drinking pop. Any tips?
