I've heard that nothing is to be done about loose skin other than surgery and/or time. Weight lifting will help the appearance because of the muscles underneath, but not for the skin itself.
So you just reached maintenance? Good! Congratulations. Now, try to maintain the same weight for a long time, at least a year or two. Do this before if/when you consider surgery to remove the skin since some maintainers on here say they noticed improvement with time once the body sort of "settles" at one weight.
It sucks but I'm sure you feel a lot better than you did at 245?
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
