Once i realized i wanted to lose the weight for myself.......not because of being teased, or society has portrayed thin as glamorous.....all it took was researching healthy eating on the net.I looked at the low carb diet, decided to try it.......and through eating good tasty meals i STILL saw the weight begin to melt away.Of course i became excited at this, actually SEEING the weight going, so unlike other diet attempts i stuck to it.My highest weight......14 and 325...and now im 16 and 135.Of course you have to also exercise, like cardiovascular, so as your body begins to shrink from the lost weight the skin remains tight and healthy.Simple cardiovascular activities helped me to avoid the 'loose skin' situation.
