I was nervous to. I have about the same amount total to lose, I'm down 30 lbs so far and still
I have roughly 100 lbs to lose. I'm 34, I'll be 35 in June, while it is a tad harder, it's not impossible. Make sure you drink plenty of water and start some strength training. The muscles you build will help with the over all lose skin you may get. I have a friend that lost 100 lbs or so, and she did end up having to have skin surgery, but that didn't stop her from losing. I think if she had strength trained early on she wouldn't have had as much skin to remove. She didn't start working out till she lost 80lbs by diet alone. Good luck in your journey! Can't wait to see your results :)

Hello,

So I'm at the very beginning of my weight loss journey, and it never occurred to me to be concerned about doing this until I spoke with a friend of mine.He was saying at my age and my weight (I'm female, 38 and I have 130 lbs to lose) I could end up looking and feeling far worse by the end than I do now if I'm able to lose weight at all. I don't know if that's necessarily true, but I have heard it's much harder to lose weight after 30 and that there can be loose skin. So now I'm wondering if it's even worth it. I mean, for health reasons it makes sense, but what's the point of caring if you have to live with looking and feeling so awful afterwards?
