Start Weight:(18 Jan 13) 246.0 lb
Current Weight:(22 Jul 14) 167.4 lb
Goal Weight:160.0 lb
following: ClassicRocker's own diet
performance: Steady

Officially began my dieting 10/1/11, when I got on the scale and saw I was up to 246.

I am a 62 year old mom of a 34 year old classically trained musician. I am working to get rid of the excess weight I've gained over the last 20 years since I had a total hysterectomy. Hormones and hypothyroidism did me in. I have a naturopath/internist who is working with me on hormone issues. And don't let anyone tell you hormones don't affect your ability to lose.

Live in PA in the country and looking forward to moving back to the city.

How do you prevent loose skin?
Thanks for also responding to this again. People, listen to us. If it's been stretched and you have stretch marks, it WILL NOT GO AWAY. Even if you don't have stretch marks. Please note Glaun said firming your "body", not skin. No matter how hard you pray, massage, take vitamins and use whatever miracle cure is being touted on tv. If you're blessed with good skin, lucky you. But if like me, a former sunbather, obese for over 20 years and old, surgery is your only answer.

Ditto to Glaun with an added. It took a long time to gain, it will take time to get rid of it and don't get disappointed if it doesn't happen overnight. It won't. Promise.

And a little nip and tuck if you like.

How do you prevent loose skin?
What Glaun said. Been there done that. There is no miracle cream, brushes, vitamins, etc. Think stretched rubber band.
