Dimples, Cellulite whatever you want to call it

Maybe it's me but I didn't seem to notice so many dimples or cellulite 50 pounds ago...maybe I didn't care but at this stage of the game it's most annoyong LOL

Will someone please tell me it gets better, down the road? Unfortunately I can't rely on my boyfriend...all he ever says is you look great when I ask about how I look (ugh men).

It just seems so much more noticeable.

I noticed more since I started exercising this past month. It really stinks to lose weight feel like you are looking better and then add some exercise to firm up only to gain cellulite.

I've seen my skin, fatty deposits, and cellulite change a lot over the course of my losses, actually. I'll get that squishy fat that comes right before a nice loss. My skin has gotten saggy and then firmed back up (over and over again). New dimples show up, then go away, then others appear. I just think it's our body adjusting to it all. The problem is that when we're really heavy, our skin looks smoother because it's full. Then as we lose, those pockets and dimples show up. But I'd rather be think with some sags than fat with perfect full skin!

I don't have too many dimples or cellulite (I don't think so anyway, but I could be delusional). What I do have is the saggy elephant skin. I think I'd rather have dimples and cellulite than this all-over deflated look.

I will say my legs and arms look better than they have any right to with my weight loss. My stomach, hips, breasts, and behind . . . well that's a whole other story!

If you are not incorporating exercise into your weight loss plan, specifically some sort of strength training, adding it will definitely help in the long run with reducing the amount of loose skin/cellulite you have once you reach your goal. It might slow down the overall loss, because you will be trading fat loss with some muscle gain, but the end results will be more to your liking.

If you are already exercising, then that is great and keep it up! And don't be afraid to lift some heavy weights!

Good advice, Mike!

I have had cellulite since I turned 15 yo. I suspect it came from nearly a year and a summer off from school sitting around depressed somewhat from a car accident when I was 13 yo. I didn't realize it at the time, of course, but I can look back now and see. I was never fat until my mid 30s, but I always had cellulite on my thighs after it first appeared. Weirdly, as LCG pointed out, the cellulite seemed to smoothe out as I continued to gain, lol. I think I would rather be thin with flabby thighs though. Lifting weights would help some, if not a lot.

Basically what Dawn said. I actually have zero cellulite/ dimples, but in the excess skin department I'm overflowing... Upper arms, stomach, butt, thighs and even my calves and I run and power walk at least 4x per week. I can't lift any weights because of spine disease, but I guess that would help. It's not an option so one day I hope to treat myself to some cosmetic surgery.

I will never really feel good about myself until I have my arms fixed at the very least.

Oh dear, I've got it all! Cellulite, flabby skin, winged upper arms etc, etc. But like LC and LCG say better that than filled with fat. At least I can hide these!

I'm like Lowcarbgal. My cellulite is changing as I lose weight. It's appeared as if from nowhere, and sometimes is really bad, other times not so bad, but still there. I'm not about to be entering a swimsuit comp, so I don't care so much...as long as I keep shrinking right?!

Hey Mike, I was thinking about adding some strength training using resistance bands at home, since I'm not ready to go to the gym yet.

My cellulite actually disappeared from my thighs and booty. Not done yet so it may reappear but for the moment its in hiding.
What I gained in its place was about 3x as many stretch marks on my belly/abdomen than I had before losing. Not sure how that worked but whatever.

Anything you do is obviously better than nothing. You don't really need a gym even. You can get a really good full body workout just doing body weight exercises alone. There are great resources on the web for body weight circuits you can do at home that are just as effective.

Just start out slow, and increase difficulty as you get stronger. And don't try to do to much at the beginning, or workout for hours a day. In the time it would take you to get ready for the gym and drive there and back you could complete your whole workout at home.
