Default does losing weight this quickly leave u with heaps of excess skin????

Hello, I wondered please if there is anyone who has almost completed or reached their goal weight or even perhaps knows of someone who has.

I am a little concerned that the cohens program may leave me with heaps of excess lose skin that I wont be able to tone up due to such rapid weight loss.

I have 45kg's to lose & I am 40yrs of age (have been overweight for the last 13yrs, not sure if that makes any difference?) & although I have read about the hormonal effect that Cohen mentions on their homepage Im still not confident without feedback from people with regards to this issue.

The more feedback the BETTER but ANY would be appreciated!!

Your ALL SO lovely in the Cohen forums, you should ALL be VERY proud of yourselves for motivating each other & I MUST SAY how much I LOVE the recipes help from people, saves one getting bored with their menu's & some very tasty sounding recipes to boot!!!

Im going to get stuck into this program from tomorrow, I had started 3days ago but Im afraid I gave into temptation very quickly (by the second day no less!!) to eat some pasta...MY BAD!!

I must say I have been reinspired & motivated by testamonials, so I shall use them as motivation EVERYTIME Im tempted to stray.

Wish me love all you awesome people & please DO respond if u have an answer with regards 2 my query!! Take care & BIG CUDDLES !! :P

Short answer: Nup.

I lost nearly double what you have to lose, as you know, and I have VERY little loose skin.

Keep up the WATER and the vitamins, they are critical.

The skin around my tummy is certainly a bit loose and flabby...but what can one expect after losing more than 30cm of waist line. Anyway its not like I have to run and hide at the swimming pool its not that bad, and certainly 1000% better than the spare tire that I was wearing.

I've lost 45kg and very little loose skin. Try taking zinc tablets as well to keep the skin healthy

There is some, but not as much as I expected.

Either way, I'd much rather have loose skin in places than be obese.

Nope here as well.

Amazing but I think because your body is doing the work to loss weight it adjust the skin down the same way it would grow it up if you put on weight. Makes sense as if not, you would burst!?

Thus Lipo and other medical methods dont trigger this natural response IMO.

I was worried about this also as I have about 65 kgs to lose.... I also have a little flabby skin already this is due to having three healthy children under my belt...lol
I think it is all worth it though and I will deal with the problem when it happens.... It's great to hear so many people who have done so well and lost so much weight don't have this problem at all!!!

Any post worthy of a reference in a post, is likewise worthy of a "bump" - so here it is.....

BUMP !!

Check the dates of the posts - this was discussed over 3 years ago Still very relevant today.... Some seriously good comment from ALL on this one - read EVERY word !!
