Does having stretch marks on my belly automatically mean i will have saggy excess skin once weight is lost?

I am 23 and 15 1/2 stone and size 18, i wanna loose however much it takes to get to a size 12 and no less than this, ive already lost 1/2 a stone through cardio work and a healthy diet. I accept i will always have the stretch marks but will my skin tighten up when i loose weight?

    yeah it should, becasue ure body will feel itself getting skinnier and adapt tothe new size by shrinking ure skin. no strecth marks.

    any rapid weight loss can produce stretch marks…which really just mean loss of elasticity in your skin…if you lose an excessive amount of weight then you have a higher chance of having loose skin…but the more healthily and gradually you do it, the less the excess should be…good luck and congratulations for taking a step in the right direction towards a more healthy lifestyle

    It all depends on the elasticity of your skin, but judging from your age, most of it will tighten up.

    Unfortunately not. My coworker, who is 27, had to get a tummy tuck because she lost a lot of weight and there was a bunch of skin left so she went through surgery.

    The only way you will have stretch marks with saggy skin is if you lose weight too fast. When you lose weight too fast your skin doesn’t have the necessary time to stretch back into place. If you are doing the diet and excercise thing the healthy way you will be fine. My sister was 5’8 215 and she lost 50 lbs and she looks fantastic! No saggy skin, tight and toned in all the right places. yes she has some stretch marks but it isn’t bad at all and most women have it anyway. She did the healthy eating and excercise thing. Good luck with your exercise program!

    really depends on how much you actually weight, are they from a pregnancy? I am sure after time it will tighten up depending how much you work for it

    You don’t say how long you have been the size you are.
    The problem is that the longer your skin has been stretched, the less chance of it retaining its elasticity.
    I really do hope you reach your goal weight.
    Good luck.

    in most cases rapid or extreme weight loss without exercising or drinking lots of water will result in saggy skin. Exercise, and drink lots and lots of water (if you can drink FIJI – it has silken in it which helps with skin elasticity but all water really helps with this anyways and it helps with losing weight)…. anyways if you exercise and drink lots of water you’ll have less chance of having saggy skin.
