Baggy Skin



Recommended Posts

Does everyone suffer from this?

I think my chances are good - I'm 38, I've had 3 babies and dont have a single stretchmark. I dont have any wrinkles yet and I only have a "relatively" small weight problem of 30-40kg. I'm more than happy to take my time about losing it?

Am I kidding myself?

Of course my boobs are going to look like footy socks with tennis balls in the end after feeding three babies :-)

My surgeon told me that everyone is different, but I'd say your chances of avoiding baggy skin are pretty good if you were able to avoid stretch marks with 3 babies. My own stomach looks like a tattoo of spaghetti salad after only 2 kids, so I'm seriously envious. And look on the bright side - maybe you can get a 2 for 1 deal if you get a boob job and a Tummy Tuck at the same time! :-)

I'm 23, have had no kids, and have a decent amount of stretchmarks, so it sounds to me like you'll end up better that I am going to :)

Stretchmarks, genetics, how long you were overweight, and how much you were over weight seem to be the things that effect this, so you might be cool :D

      How can a bowel movement make me lose almost 4 pounds? How much poo am I full of?

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
