Why I Chose To Keep My Loose Skin After Weight Loss

loose skin after weight loss


I need to fess up about something. After I had lost 150 pounds, I was deeply disappointed with how my body looked. When my weight loss journey began back in 2009, I had false expectations of what I would look like naked after losing half of my body size.


With every piece of skinless chicken breast I put into my mouth and every bicep curl I did, I believed I would look like that smiling, perfect fitness model on the cover of every mainstream fitness magazine. Boy, was I wrong.


Loose skin is a real concern for anyone with a large amount of weight to lose. Maybe that’s why Google returns 3,800,000 search results for the term “loose skin after weight loss“. No matter how much I read up on the subject, I was left feeling like maybe (just maybe), I was the lucky one with a good genetic background that would not have an issue with saggy skin.


Even though I lost weight rapidly (150 pounds in less than a year) without weight loss surgery, I did everything else right. I ate my vegetables and lean meats. I took supplements. I drank tons of water. I lifted really heavy weights. All of this probably saved me from some of the saggy skin issues I could have faced, but I was still left with about 5-10 pounds of excess skin just hanging on for dear life.
