I have lost 117 lbs total and I have a ton of excess skin. I have been exercising at the gym doing cardio and weight training but I cant really tell a difference. HAs anyone had the problem with excess skin after losing weight and what did you do? Thanks.

Hi Cara! I had a lot of excess skin after losing 122 pounds and had some of it removed. Check out this thread: Weight Loss And Skin FAQs (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/showthread.php?t=36040) - some of us who have had skin removal surgery posted about our experiences. :)

Congratulations on your fabulous weight loss! :bravo:

check with your insurance company to see if they will cover the procedure to get the skin removed. i have actually seen a few cases where woman were approved and the surgery was 100% covered since obesity is considered a disease, and the loose skin is a side effect from the disease (after losing the weight) it never hurts to call your insurance company and look into it.
