Losing weight is an exhilarating feeling for most of the overweight people who are dieting. You feel good about your loss, but worry about the aftermath of it all. There may or may not be excess skin when all is said and done, but this is far better and healthier than being overweight.
The best way to attempt to avoid this plight is to lose weight slowly and exercise. This is not to say that it may not happen to some extent anyway, but the odds are in your favor to at least prevent some of it.
Other ways to prevent the hanging excess skin misfortune is to:
Drink plenty of water
Eat healthy concentrating on protein
Involve yourself in resistance training
To have lost weight and end up with a body with some loose skin is more desirable than not losing the weight at all. When we have lost weight our bodies have gone through a tremendous ordeal, but with the weight loss we achieve a new level of health awareness. Having the perfect body may not be possible, but trying to make things better for ourselves healthwise is a wise decision nonetheless.
Wearing skimpy shorts or a bikini might not be an option for those who have lost a great deal of weight, but we can still feel good about our accomplishments when we put on a smaller size pair of jeans or go to our annual health check-up and find that our cholesterol and blood pressure are now within a normal range. We were not all meant to look like a cover girl on a magazine, but we deserve a big round of applause for taking the necessary steps to get our bodies conditioned in the most optimal way that we are capable of.
Do not let fear of excess skin stand in the way of your dreams for a healthier exterior. Make it a point to get in better health today and work with what you have when you are finished to be the most attractive person that you can be. Do it for yourself and hold your head up high for you are beautiful.
