How do I avoid extra skin when losing weight?

I need to lose the baby weight from my 3 pregnancies, which equals about 40-50 pounds. Plus I want to lose the extra weight I had before getting pregnant which was about 20 pounds. So I want to lose 60-70 pounds total. Most of the weight is on my belly and sides, with a little on my inner thighs and under my arms. So I want to know how do I avoid ending up with lots of loose skin in these areas? I plan on losing it slow over the course of about a year.

    You can’t… plastic surgery.

    The loose skin is inevitable with that amount of weight loss, and with the pregnancies. Many people have this surgically corrected after losing the weight. In some cases, insurance may have to cover it because of the risk of skin infection and break down.

    Slow weight loss is the best possibility. You also want to keep your body toned by working out, especially the problem areas. The younger you are, the better the chance of your skin becoming tight again. Working out alone is not a guarantee that skin will not sag, sometimes it just depends on the person. When all else fails, plastic surgery.

    My sister had gastric bypass a year ago and has lost over 150 pounds. While she has excessive skin around her abdomen, she has kept most other areas of her body semi-toned with exercise, and, believe it or not, Mary Kay “Visability” Lotion. It tones the skin. (No, I don’t sell it, but I use it!). As well, remember to eat a LOT of strawberries while losing. Why? They promote/increase the elasticity of your skin, which helps when you lose weight! Good luck!

    Homeopathic Treatment for Excessive Fat and Weight :-
    PHYTOLACCA BERRY’s Mother Tincture is perhaps the safest and sure fire way of loosing excessive fat around abdomen. With Phytolacca Berry once you loose the excessive fat and weight you don’t get it back because you body takes care of itself after that and keeps you from gathering up excessive fat. It is prescribed after having a baby too, to get the tummy to loose its flab and to make it flatter and tighter. And after loosing weight with this you don’t get flabby it tightens up the flab and skin along with helping your body to shed the excessive accumulation of fat around the girth
    The dosage is 15 to 20 drops of the tincture in half a cup of hot water thrice a day half hour before or after meals.
    Avoid Chocolates, Coffee, Mints, Red Meat and Carbonated and Alcoholic drinks while taking Homeopathic Medicines. You have to take it for at least 30 to 45 days after that you start to feel the results.
    To the best of my knowledge its the safest and the most sure fire way of loosing fat and weight and keeping it of for keeps. Excellent remedy for Obese people who cant seem to shed weight despite trying.
    Homeopathic Remedies can be found at all Major Herbal Stores or could be bought on line, In most of the world Homeopathic remedies are quite cheap and easy to find and they do not need a prescription.
    Take care and God Bless !

    Regular active exercise is advised with all weight loosing medicines and remedies 🙂 Take care
