What is the best way to lose weight without risk of excess loose skin?

I’ve been doing well with my running which has helped me lose 15lbs however, I really want to lose another 30-40lbs to be at my healthy weight. I’m worried that if i continue to do this, i’ll be stuck with ugly loose skin (which i know would be better than being overweight) but if there is any way i can help avoid this through exersice techniques/methods, please share.

Thanks!

    being active is the best way to tone skin, but sometimes, no matter how much exercise you get, skin that has been stretched to maximun capacity by obesity is not going to recover, then the only option is plastic surgery to remove it.

    I lost `112 pounds, no loose skin, but I exercised 6 days a week and my job is very physical, so I lucked out. However, I have met people that have lost a lot of weight and the loose skin is unbelievable.

    Don’t have any exercise tips but if you are concerned, I would seek out a trainer or pick up a book on exercise from your local library.

    Best of luck !

    The loose skin completely depends on your age. If you are over 30 it will be hard to avoid and will most likely require surgery to get rid of. If you are not older than that, you have nothing to worry about because your skin still has elasticity and will keep up with your new weight.

    depending on your age, losing 30-40 pounds shouldn’t be enough to cause a lot of loose skin. as long as you lose the weight naturaly and slowly-no fads or fast weight loss programs- and keep excercising to tone, you should have no problems. good luck.

    diet and exercise. just don’t starve yourself. If you intake proper nutrition your body will slim as you go. There may be periods of loose skin, but if you are steady and don’t lose too fast, your body will catch up.

    Congrats!

    Water is key. I know it sounds cliche but it is. I am a massage therapist and nutritionist so I know this one. There are many factors to self care, especially when you’re dealing with extreme weight loss. First and most important, you need to be easy, slow and careful about how much weight you’re losing and how fast you are losing it. If you lose the weight at a healthy pace using only diet and exercise programs right for you that you and your doctor agreed on, you really should have that much left over loose skin. Vitamin E and Q-10 supps are things to talk about with Dr. and WATER! WATER! WATER! It’s not over rated by any means, in fact, it’s looked over too frequently. My pet peeves are people who say “Im dieting, trying to lose weight” as their popping the cap on a diet coke..IT’S BAD FOR YOU! Drink water! 64 to 70 ounces a day, every day!! K!!??

    There are a number of things you can do to help increase the elasticity of your skin while your losing weight. Lose the weight slowly, through diet and exercise. Hydrate yourself well, and stay hydrated. Eat foods high in Omega 3 fatty acids, which is very good for skin and cell regeneration. (cold water fish and tree nuts are very good, healthful sources of this essential fatty acid.)
    But remember, each of these things can only help so much, becaue if you really damged your skin while you were gaining weight (IE gained it so fast that your skin errupted in stretch marks) you will probobly have at least some saggy skin you can’t get rid of. (but there are creams that are sold by plastic surgeans that can help reduce the appearance of scars, and it works wonders on stretch marks.)
    Hope that helps.
