The last time I lost weight I was 28 and lost 40 lbs, all my body parts stayed where they were, now that Im 46 and they have already started shifting Im wondering where they will end up at after losing 80 lbs.
I have to agree, rather scary to think. I often joke that I need a body lift where things are gathered up over my shoulders and pinned to my heels! Get the picture!! I know exercise will help some but there's only so much it can do!
Yep...After losing 50lbs., I can see things are going to be very different. I don't like it but it is much better than being unhealthy at this point. One place I hate is under my chin. The skin is starting to hang there. I don't want to go under the knife to fix it. I keep doing exercises for it but I think it is hopeless. I will have to get used to it like I got used to all the fat.
Well I can tell you from experience that my former 42DD are way less firm now they're 36Ds. However a decent bra soon has them up where they should be. My treble chin has been replaced by something approaching turkey neck but I'm trying fix it with firming creams. Would I go back to the way I was, h*ll no!
I love this thread!! I think its amazing what a good bra and a pair of spanx can do!! I have lost 86lbs in a year and I know things are heading south.I had rather have them saggy and flabby than full of fat!! I think I hate my upper arms worse than anything else..they are like wings now!!!
I just posted this in our other thread but thought it was appropriate for this thread also.
I did my pictures today and had a real eye opener. Since starting I have taken my pictures every Monday with a pair of shorts and sports bra on. Today I took them with underwear and sports bra. OH MY.... not a pretty sight. My belly looks sooo much better covered. I'm seriously wondering if I will have to consider surgery to get rid of the skin flap/apron around my mid section. I've always wanted an augmentation (when thin) but now I'm thinking a lift with augmentation will be required and IF I am going to have that done I might as well have a tummy tuck. Anyone else considering surgery?

I turn 40 this autumn. I have promised myself if I lose the weight and my 'stuff' become pendulous I am getting at least a lift if not an actual boob job. Husband seems to approve. He is also trying to lose and wants to get excess skin removed. If we can afford it, I think we might just.
