  6. Starting at a higher BMI
    So far I've lost 90lbs and I've been left with loose skin. I didn't think it would be that bad when I first started losing weight but the issue is becoming more apparent. I also feel like I'm much bigger than I am due to the loose skin distorting my view of myself. I really just wanted to post...

    Would 600-1200 cal a day and plenty of water help to prevent loose skin? my cw is 145 and my gw is 99, i’m 5’0”. I’m scared to lose too quickly because of the possibility of loose skin, but I can’t stand being this size. It took years to get to this size from on and off bingeing, so I didn’t put...

    What do you think the min weight loss is for loose skin to appear? I'm not talking like folds of it or anything, but I'm down about 15 lbs rn (from HW), and around hips its fine, but I feel like my stomach is still loose (not fat, but wrinkly?) ? Like it seems wrong for the low weight loss...
  12. Fasting and Cleansing
    i wanted to make a thread where people could discuss if fasting has helped with their loose skin or not - for me it has! also, a couple of other methods i used to prevent it / treat it. the one thing i've found that works for loose skin is fasting. i'm serious. you've seen pictures of people in...
  13. Starting at a higher BMI
    Lately I've been feeling really bummed out about myself because I feel like I've ruined my own body before I ever had the chance to be skinny. I've lost over 100lbs and even thought I still have a ways to go to get to my UGW, i already notice the loose skin on my body and it feels awful. I feel...

    I have this thought in my mind all the time... Loose skin. After a about three years of recovery gone wrong, I gained about 50 pounds. Now that I'm trying to loose it, I start thinking about loose skin and it really triggers my anxiety... Thinking that when I finally reach my goal, all the hard...

    Hej, I hope it's okay to post this here and I hope that my English won't be toooo bad. If so, feel free to correct me :) I am overweight. I literally have been it since my early stage of teenage hood (so 11/12). I lost weight, gained it back, lost it (achieved a normal weight but still at the...
  16. Fasting and Cleansing
    Anyone here who's done 7+ fast and ended up with minimal loose skin afterward? I've been fasting on and off for a while now and have lost about 40+ lbs. I am lucky enough to not have any real loose skin now, but I've got about 70 more lbs I wanna lose still. I believe in autophagy because I...
