Does exercizing really tone?



Recommended Posts

My surgery date is Jan 22nd and I've been wondering what will happen to my loose skin as I lose weight. My plan is to get a personal trainer to help me tone up. Will this really work or is it wishful thinking?

I had my surgery last year in march and I go to the gym 6 days a week. I workout out different parts of my body on different days. My arms and legs have toned up really good but i am having trouble with my ab area still. I dont know if its just how my body wants to respond or not but for the most part you should be able to tone up pretty well with the right exercises and foods. As far as the loose skin goes we kind of have to deal with it but for some you won't have any at all. Good luck on your surgery, it will be the best thing you can do for yourself, I love it!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
