Im losing a pund a day and im worried about excess skin and gaining it back quick!

LOL I meant pound a day! So im losing a pound every 1-2 days, its coming off quick! I love seeing the scale go down, but im scared I'll have extra skin and the weight will come back really quick! I started at 238 and now down to 213...I have a good 65 pounds to still go. Im worried as soon as I go off all my weight will come back on.. How can I ignore these two things?

You just do. Don't look for problems, just focus on the journey. Trust me, the weight loss will slow down, and sometimes stop for weeks at a time, so while you're losing quickly, enjoy it and don't waste your time stressing about it.

As far as loose skin, that is going take time to know if you'll have it or not. It will depend, on age, weight history, genetics, etc. etc. etc........ The bottom line is, there really isn't much you can do about it. Use a good moisturizer, drink plenty of water, things like that, but it really isn't going to make that much of a difference. Loose skin can be hidden, looks fine with clothes, and is so much better than having all that extra weight.

Cadet12 - you say your worried about when you go off -- do you mean you plan to lose the weight and then abandon the low carb WOL? I hope not, because then you will run the risk of a fast regain. Plan on losing the weight, finding the number of carbs you can consume to maintain and you won't have any problems. Resuming carb laden foods that put weight on in the first place with certainly result in regaining.

As MG said, enjoy the journey and loss as it's working for you now, you will experience highs and lows, stalls and gains as we all do but staying the course will get you to your goal.

I know I will end up with extra skin, I would rather carry around 15-20 pounds of skin than 200 pounds of blubbery fat- but hey that's just me

Cadet congrats on losing, proud of you, don't think of low carb as a quick fix, these are lifelong changes we have to make if not we will end back up here with an even more dysfunctional relationship with food,

reptogirl you always crack me up!

Seriously Cadet congrats on the weight loss -- like everyone said before me -- enjoy the journey!! People in here would kill for 1 lb every 1-2 days. We want INSTANT results and anyone that says differently is a [insert expletive of your choosing] LIAR.

About the regaining portion of our program OMG I know we gain it back a lot quicker then we take it off and then we can add a few more lbs on top of that. I am an old pro at the gaining/losing game. But not anymore...

Do you not plan to stay doing the LC WOE forever? I've done that, lost the weight thought I could eat like normal carb eating people even got the T-shirts in size Medium to 4XL to prove it.

As for the loose skin, MG clued me into those body shaper tanks (undershirt), I think that's what they are called... they work wonders!!

Wishing all of us continued success on our personal LC WOE journeys!!

I lost almost 100 pounds last time around. (gained it back during hubbys sickness and death.. well most of it anyhow) During the time I maintained, I did callenetics. I know we don't have to exercise to lose, but I swear, my tummy was almost flat. Even my arms looked good. You can google callenetics. I had the ten hr one. love it. still have it. just need to do it.
