Squishy-Squashy Loose Skin After Low-Carb Weight Loss

Filed under: Low-carb side effects — @ June 19, 2006

I know, showing a picture of my loose skin is disgusting to display in public, but I think this is an important topic for people who are losing weight on low-carb to know about.

Whether you have 50, 100 or 200 pounds to lose, you may or may not need to deal with what to do about hanging excess skin after your weight comes off. The weight loss is phenomenal, but it can be challenging to stay motivated with this big blog of skin drooping off of your body afterwards.

bq. Some people tell me I should just be thankful for my weight loss and simply ignore the loose skin problem. However, it is a HUGE mental test that I have had to endure and it is one I am still going through and will continue to go through until that fateful day when I will FINALLY be able to get it taken care of. You can’t underestimate how discouraging this can be on someone who has worked so hard to get to this point. I could see someone with less emotional strength collapsing under the pressure of disappointment.
