I don't want to end up FLABBY after my weight loss

I want to lift my boobs (naturally, lol), tighten my butt, and flatten my tummy while I lose the rest of my weight. So far I have gone from 207 to 172, over a period of 7 months, and intend on losing around 35 more pounds. However I don't want to be flabby. I seem to have lost most of my weight so far in the upper portion of my body.

If I start exercising now, which I detest, are the odds good that I can still tighten my body? How long does it normally take to see changes from flab to toned muscles, and what are some of the most basic exercises that I should do? I'm pretty much a boring person, I would rather just get it done - I have no need to do different stuff every day.

In advance thank you.

Congrats on your weight loss. So I'm guessing you only did it through diet? You should definitely start working out now. Just start off walking or doing something fun, like the pool? Strength training is key to tone your muscle. But besides that, adding muscle will speed up your weight loss because perhaps eventually you'll hit a plateau. I'd recommend walking 30 minutes a few times a week to start off and you should look up strength training exercises online. Just work out the major muscle groups like your biceps, triceps, shoulders, back, chest, abs, obliques, lower back, and thighs. Good luck!

I am getting down to within 10 lbs of my weight loss goal but I am more skinny flabby than I am toned and firm in my stomach area. I do strength training and crunches but I am not really seeing improvement. HELP!

it takes time, but use a very strong glycolic acid all over your body. I use 15% daily - it's strong enough to keep the skin active. If the skin is active, not just some inert organ it's going to reassess and reabsorb. 15% is strong enough that it stings, but glycolic leaves your skin soft and post peel care isn't required.

If you really want faster results use salicylic acid. Actually, you may want to start there, as it really removes dead skin. If you are using a strong salicylic acid, you are going to need to heal your skin with a lotion containing copper peptides after.

You might want to start with a mild salicylic acid- like the stronger ones offered at Paula's Choice. Search online for Glytone if you want to go the glycolic route.

Good luck!

PP- does this actually tighten the loose skin back up?

A lot of people get plastic surgery after they lose weight to feel better about themselves. If you lose your weight slowly, you sometimes look better and have a lot less loose skin.
