It can take up to a year for the skin to shrink...esp. at our advanced age (Iím 67, too) and it will never be what it was...think of a deflated balloon.
Dress to hid the flaws, thatís my mantra.

Unfortunately, skin loses elasticity with age. Even if you were always slim, skin sags. Plastic surgery is the only option if you really want to do it. It's a booming surgery in this day of gastric bypass. People lose one or two hundred pounds, then have to have surgery to remove the 20 pounds of skin hanging down. It can be every bit the life changer as losing the weight.

i am sitting here hoping some one will come up with the definitive answer one that works . im 68 and have been overweight most of my life and i have developed this big sort of flap on my tummy a turkey neck and the top of my thighs are just in a class of their own!!
i have a feeling that if you are apple shaped you will always have a tummy at least thats what i tell myself.
for years i have moaned about plastic surgery being the violation of a healthy body but looking at my tummy some days i am prepared to change my mind!

I have been fat all of my life and I am 67 so that is a lot of years. I have lost 30 pounds in the last 3 months which I am very happy about. However the extra skin on my belly is sagging down below my belly button so it doesn't look like I have lost at all through the middle.

Some people have suggested that I do ab exercises but I wouldn't think that would work. That extra skin and tissue would still be there, wouldn't it? I guess I could get a tummy tuck but that is a big deal and I don't think I would do that. I am not really vain about my looks, I am doing this for my health and to be more able to move around and be more active.

I had a friend that I don't see often that lost 75 pounds and she sent me a picture of her in sweat pants and she still looked fat in her belly.

Any suggestions?

Jane
