breathe, girls. the loose skin probably won't ALL go away [a lot depends on age, genetics, amount lost, and a bunch of other factor]. BUT, the skin takes a bit of time to respond to the RAPID weight loss that we have at the beginning. it DOES IMPROVE over time. it WILL PROBABLY NOT BE PERFECT.
Exercise helps, as does WATER, calcium, and protein. sooooo, keep up the TERRIFIC work!!!!
