I use to have those same fears. I wanted to lose the weight and nothing was going to stop me, but it was always in the back of my mind that my skin might not bounce back like I wanted. I'm young, so I had that on my side, But I have been big all my life so I know my skin isn't going to recover perfectly.
But I figure, it don't bother me what my skin looks like. Who is gonna see it anyways? the only people who will see it. (such as a doctor, family or other half) won't care. I will be healthy, and being healthy has always been higher on the list than looks.
Hardest part of working out, is that first step out the door.
