Other people, I'm sure, will have other better information and advice, but I just wanted to chime in because I lived through the exact same fear.
I had, in all honestly, about 200 lbs to lose when I started "living the good life", and since I've been fat or obese almost all of my life, I have no reason to suspect that I might be one of the "lucky ones" who have their skin snap into perfect shape. The thought kind of panicked and depressed me a bit, but then I came to the realizations that 1) there is no point stressing over something that hasn't happened yet and that I cannot control and 2) I already have "excess skin"- it just has a lot of fat under it as well.
If it must be, I'd rather have the skin without the fat.
Then, if I feel umcomfortable later, and enough time has gone by that I know my body isn't going to change on its own, I will worry about what to do. From what I have seen, the surgeries seem reasonably priced, and even at my economic level (not the best
), I'd be able to save up for them in an okay time-frame.
I know it seems scarry, but I promise that it will be okay. Remember that people have been losing large amounts of weight throughout history, and I'm sure that many of them also had "excess skin". It's only become an issue now that there is a remedy (plastic surgery) and people who benefit by the problem (plastic surgeons).
We'll be okay!
