Ok, I'm not a maintainer (yet). I want to lose 20 more pounds (about), but I've been maintaining around this weight for over a year and my skin HAS shrunk up quite a bit in that time.

How much have you lost? 93 pounds
How old were you when you lost the weight? 42
How long were you at your high weight? 2 years at 275 about 10 years at 265, but I've been creeping up overweight for my entire adulthood.
Are you still losing weight? Yes
How long did it take you to lose the weight? 1 year and a year of bouncing 20 pounds trying to take off the last 20 pounds.
Did you have weight loss surgery? No.
Do you have pregnancy stretch marks? All the stomach marks are from pregnancy.
Do you have weight gain stretch marks? On thigh,s upper arms and back of knees
If you are in maintenance, how long have you been maintaining? Not in maintainance, but I've been around this weigh for 15 months.

Oh> I exercise 5-6 times a week, including weight training. My resting heart rate is 52. My body fat percentage right now (per bodpod) is 33 percent.

ETA: I thought about waiting until I get to goal (again), but I will just be thinner. The loose skin will be about the same.

What looks like a fold/apron, isn't exactly. The belly does droop, obviously, but it doesn't fold over on itself to make a fold, so I don't get rashes, etc. in the apron/loose skin.

In the last year, the arms have definitely shrunken up as has the tummy and inner thighs, but I think they've shrunk up as much as it will.
