The Truth About Loose Skin

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

I've been concerned about my loose skin, particularly on my belly, and whether or not it will ever go away, no matter what I do, and so on. About half of the information I found said, that no, it will never go away. The other half said core strength training will fix it. I was confused, so I asked my doctor about it. She told me that the reason the information is split down the middle like that is that about 50% of people can get rid of the loose skin with core strength training. The other 50% can't, though, and the only way to know which half you fall into is to do core strength training.

Then I got hit with rather unexpected good news about the situation: if I keep up with my core strength training for 6 months, and there's no improvement in my loose skin, it is likely that my insurance will cover getting it fixed. I'm ecstatic. I never thought there was the remotest possibility that my insurance might cover that. Plus, it's new-found extra motivation to keep up with the core strength exercises.
