I went for a physical. And i asked my doctor about the excess fat around my stomach. I had been 300lbs and i lost it all within 2 yrs and now i still have this layer around my stomach that ive been following diets on here to lose. I asked the doc about it and he said the only way to remove that fat is to have it surgically removed. So all this weight lifting and cutting aint gonna do it ...that totally ruins my goal ... had my head looked up to losing that with a clean diet and weight training. The surgery is too much money...wow what a bummer ...sorry this isnt a cry for help ...just wanted to share it with you
Don´t worry, you can take that pretty soft tissue off. Unless it is not loose skin and it is actually fat. Most of it will be water weight as well.
Keep cutting and don´t give your money to the doctor.
i weigh 200lbs now..so 100 lbs gone. And its definitely fat ..and some loose skin but mostly fat ..i can feel it. I dont think im going to quit working hard at it. Because i had similiar fat or.."love handles" and i lost those with cutting...just the front area now. Hope the doc is wrong...says i need a tummy tuck or something
Joey, I feel your pain Bro. Sounds like loose skin. I have the same problem. I was 389lbs 18 months ago. Now I'm down to 235lbs & 11.9 %BF. I feel great but I will always have this loose skin around my mid section. Nothing but surgery will fix this problem. Sorry!
How old are you? The younger you are, the better the chances of your skin shrinking back to its original size. It has more elasticity when you're young. Don't do anything radical until you've gotten to where you think you should be, and even then give your skin some time to resize. I think your doctor is full of shit and an alarmist. It may come to the point where you need some skin removed, but now is not the time to think about it. And if it does come, if you have insurance, it may be covered as long as your doctor(s) deem it medically necessary, because you have lost an emormous amount of weight. Don't be discouraged.
