When does the loose skin start to show up?
 
I've lost 65 lbs and have another 95 to go. So far, I don't have any loose skin, but I know I have a LOOOOOOONG way to go.

For those of you who do have loose skin, when did it start showing up?

I started at 303 and I noticed the skin somewhere around 210-200. At first it didn't seem to be too bad. But the more you lose the more you see. Supposedly, it gets worse before it gets better. I am starting to notice mine getting better now after being around the same weight for a year. I want to lose about another 50 and I plan on it getting worse again. But it's no big thing because I know it'll get better again too!

i've lost 15lbs and i'm seeing ripples on my thighs making them look like they're wax slumping in the sun.

not everybody gets loose skin - some ppl are blessed with great elasticity.

I noticed after around...I dunno, maybe 30-40 pounds. I thought it'd be absolutely horrible, but given the amount I've lost, it's not that terrible. I thought because I noticed it quickly, it'd get worse really fast. Nope.

Now, keep in mind, my arms are absolutely wrecked right now, but it's still not as bad as I thought, and it does seem to be improving.

I didn't think I had any as of losing 100 lb. But after losing 120, yep I've got it. But it's not bad. I don't expect to be flawless after all I've put this body through!

I'm starting to notice it now & i'm not gonna lie, It's bothering me. I've lost almost 65lbs and it's showing up on me in just weird places I didn't expect, but it's cool I guess. Also, everyone is different :)

After the first 30lbs I started to see loose skin, but it usually seemed that my skin was playing catch up with my loses. I would lose the fat and then the skin would shrink with it.

I've got a little bit of extra skin right now, but I find that it is slowly shrinking up as I maintain. I think strength training is really helping there.
