I haven't weighed myself in a while. I was getting discouraged because my weight wasn't going down so I just quit weighing myself. I got on the scale today and have found that I have lost almost 10 pounds!

BMI is not a number that you can rely on (most if not all bodybuilders are "obese" according to that chart). You really should have your body fat measured.

A note on abdominoplasty ("tummy tuck") and similar reconstructive procedures...

Genetics and gravity inevitably take their toll, both on fat and skin. Especially as we age, weight loss can leave redundant skin. From a medical standpoint, we tend to wait until we are sure that patients have reached their target weight and also that they are protecting the elasticity of their skin (no smoking, Vitamin C, Zinc Sulfate, minimal sun exposure).

It's worth thinking carefully --- and having a detailed discussion with a plastic surgeon--about the effect of addressing one area and not another. For example, the ligaments that support the breasts also tend to stretch with gravity, as do the medial aspects of the upper arms ("batwings"). An aggressive tummy tuck leaving the other areas alone may "look funny". I do not mean to suggest that there is any need to do more than you and your surgeon think is appropriate--merely to suggest that thinking about what the end-result is going to look like is important.

Make certain that you and your surgeon discuss the extent of the resulting scar and consider your personal scarring pattern. This too is genetically determined. Some people have a lot of inflammation and have scars that stay angry and red for a long time. Others are minimal. But bear in mind that the typical abdominoplasty scar runs from one anterior superior iliac spine to the other--where the ASIS are the bony protrusions that many identify as their "hips". The scar can sit fairly low, but cannot be hidden completely, for example, in pubic hair.

Mail me if further info desired.

You are still really young and if you are patient you should have no problems.

A tummy tuck is not the only solution. High dose vitamin C and also good quality vitamin E taken religiously can help with elasticity and collagen production, not to mention fish oils. There is also a laser technique (Titan comes to mind) that is not laser surgery but boosts the collagen production in the area of the laser. It typically takes 6 weeks after the procedure to see improvement but I have been on other boards (stripperweb) where I have seen women's before and after pictures and was quite surprised at the results.

My husband has been going through cycles of loose skin and then tightening, loose then tight and he used and abused his body for YEARS. I just want people to know that there are other options.

I bought my first size 8 pair of jeans that I can honestly remember buying as an adult, even when I was in the military. I was in the dressing room dancing around in circles haha....and they aren't tight, they fit just right. I'm floating on air lmao! Shell
