Default Skin elasticity

Im not sure if im in the right forum for this question, but Ill ask anyway.

I'm on my journey to drop 100 pounds. I've never had an issue losing weight before, so I know dropping the weight is doable ; however, I am curious about skin elasticity.
I am worried that once my weight is gone, I may have issues with this.

My question is, do those with experience in high weight loss know how to manage this? I am going to the gym now, (just started my journey again), and I know that building muscle helps. Does anyone else have any other recommendations for helping with the skin process?

Hello! Though i have never faced with such problem think everything depends on your skin type and on the speed of your weight loss!! If you go slowly with weight loss, your skin will be ok!! Gym will help as well. Maybe also you can use some creams for skin?
