Why You Can’t Exercise That Extra Skin Away

You’ve worked hard to lose the weight and get where you want to be… but now there’s loose, sagging skin getting in the way of feeling totally satisfied with your results. 

Unfortunately, even the most diligent workout routine will not make that extra skin disappear.

Loose Skin: Why We Have It & What to Do

Excess skin can be a frustrating side effect of major weight loss. After achieving such a feat, you should get to enjoy your new, healthy body! In addition to the aesthetic challenge, excess skin can be very uncomfortable, making clothes fit differently and causing chafing, rashes, or irritation. 

But here’s the hard truth: Skin that has been stretched excessively for long periods of time will not return back to its original shape. 

Gaining weight long-term can weaken the elasticity of your skin and stretch your connective tissues until it becomes thin. Skin just isn’t designed to snap back into place after a significant reduction in excess fat. 

Achieving Your Goals is Possible

Some people are genetically more susceptible to weakened skin elasticity and may have more excess skin than others. Age, the amount of weight gained and lost, and other lifestyle choices factor into this as well. Luckily, whatever the reason for your excess skin, it can be corrected!
