From Reea, Age 19 - 05/31/11 - IP#: 81.96.15.xxx hide message replied togo to original board Ht. 5'7", Start: 248.6 lb, Today: 245.2 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 140 lb - So I have something that I need to get off my chest.. Does nobody else fear what their body will look like once they've lost weight? I know I'll be healthier when I'm at my goal weight but inside, all I can think of is the fact that I'm going to have saggy skin (I fear my arms and stomach most) and all of my stretch marks will still be there, and I have them literally everywhere! Arms (even the outside), abdomen, thighs, calves, back. They're EVERYWHERE! It's all I can think about.. How I'll be really proud once I've managed to reach my goal, but I'll still despise the way my body looks, and I'll never ever be able to wear a bikini like my friends do. PLEASE tell me I'm not alone in this! How do you guys deal with it? I hope everyone's doing well and keeping on track x

ooo yea i think about it all the time but here's the thing, i rather be thin at a healthy weight and have some lose skin which i still have even now then be this weight. I know it's something scary but everything in life has it's down sides and we have to weigh the odds. Losing weight has more good thingd than bad and to be honest if one day you can fix the lose skin then do it that's what i think about even though it's another scary thing. But what i can tell you is this, forget about the what ifs of life think about the now and where you want to be don't let anything stop you from this because it's too important, be proud of what you've accomplished so far and lift some weights and drink lots of water and lose the weight at a good pace so the skin wont be that lose. Good luck take it one day at a time becuase when we get there nothing else should matter.
