I think people need to remember that genetics and age play a big role in skin appearance after weight loss. A good example is pregnancy. I know women with 4+ children and no stretch marks or extra skin. And then I know someone with stretchmarks from her knees to her chest after one baby and a 35-lb weight gain.
That article was enlightening and needed to be written. At the same time, I hope it doesn't discourage anyone from taking the difficult journey toward healthy weight. The article writer's experience is a definite possibility for anyone after extreme weight loss, but it's not a mandatory sentence. It should have also come with that disclaimer: Your results may vary.
