I sometimes get emails from folks who would very much like to have dramatic and rapid weight loss on the Medifast diet, but they’re quite concernedÂ about the sagging, hanging, loose, or excess skin which they suspect will inevitably follow. One reader wrote to me and said: “I’m not sure what goodÂ losing all the weight would do if IÂ had this girdle of sagging skin all over my body. I’m almost afraid that this would look worse than how IÂ look right now and IÂ don’t want to have toÂ go through surgery to get rid of it.”Â I’ll tell you how IÂ responded to this email in the following article.
Rapid And Dramatic Weight Loss From Medifast Followed By Excess Skin:Â My Experience:Â It’s pretty common knowledge that some people do have issues with excess skin after losing a large amount of weight quickly.Â I strongly suspected that this would be an issue for me, but I still felt that it was better to deal with this than to remain overweight.Â I braced myself for this unsightly overhang and IÂ wasn’t surprised when I began to see it after losing about 40 pounds on Medifast.Â I researched everything that I could get my hands on to decide how to best deal with it.Â And, IÂ even went and saw a plastic surgeon who assured me that he could easily fix the problem.Â Still, I knew that their were always risks with surgery, and with children, IÂ just was not willing to risk this for vanity.Â I wanted to lose the weight for my health, energy levels and self esteem, but IÂ wasn’t going to take any unnecessary risks and I decided to try to deal with the skin issue naturally.
I found a couple of articles which maintained that the sagging skin is really the result of losing muscle while you are losing fat.Â Basically, you are dropping so much weight very quickly that your body is not making any distinction between the fat and muscle.Â And, it is quite possible to be thin but to still have way too much fat.Â This is why you can sometimes see even thin people with sagging skin as well.
I also read that you can non surgically tighten this skin up by changing up your body composition.Â Only losing weight is not enough.Â You must also maintain or gain muscle mass if you want to avoid or to tighten up that loose skin.Â I had been power walking through out my Medifast weight loss and this did help me to get faster results, but it did not give me the lean and long lines that IÂ really wanted. So, I started out with resistance bands, saw pretty decent results and eventually moved on to free weights.Â The results continued to improve and eventually IÂ got a very small and inexpensive weight bench.Â My goal was about 10% of body fat because my research had indicated that this is what is necessary to get rid of that loose skin.Â I have not yet reached that level, but IÂ can tell you that I continue to see improvement as I get closer to this goal.
Do IÂ wish that I had no excess skin? Absolutely.Â But, I continue to improve and I look so much better than I did before.Â Even form fitting or snug clothing now looks great and I would never ever put that weight back on just to avoid the hanging skin.Â I’m pretty confident that if IÂ can get to 10% body fat, I’ll be quite content with the results.Â My skin sag is not so bad that I can’t wear a bathing suit (and I would’ve never worn a bathing suit at my highest weight), and frankly I’m just grateful that I have this option.

Torre pendente di Pisa
Image by Rodrigo_Soldon La cosiddetta torre pendente di Pisa (chiamata semplicemente torre pendente o torre di Pisa) è il campanile della Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta, nella celeberrima Piazza dei Miracoli di cui è il monumento più famoso per via della caratteristica pendenza. Si tratta di un campanile a sé stante alto circa 56 metri, costruito nell'arco di due secoli, tra il dodicesimo e il quattordicesimo. Pesante 14.453 tonnellate, vi predomina la linea curva, con giri di arcate cieche e sei piani di loggette. La sua pendenza è dovuta ad un cedimento del terreno verificatosi già nelle prime fasi della costruzione. L'inclinazione dell'edificio attualmente misura 5° rispetto all'asse verticale. La torre di Pisa rimane in equilibrio perché la verticale che passa per il suo baricentro cade all'interno della base di appoggio. ______________________________ A torre pendente de Pisa (em italiano Torre pendente di Pisa), ou simplesmente, Torre de Pisa, é um campanário (campanile ou campanário autônomo) da catedral da cidade italiana de Pisa. Está situada atrás da catedral, e é a terceira mais antiga estrutura na praça da Catedral de Pisa (Campo dei Miracoli), depois da catedral e do baptistério. Embora destinada a ficar na vertical, a torre começou a inclinar-se para Sudeste, logo após o início da construção, em 1173, devido a uma fundação mal construída e a um solo de fundação mal compactado, que permitiu à fundação ficar com assentamentos diferenciais. A torre atualmente se inclina para o sudoeste. A altura do solo ao topo da torre é de 55,86 metros no lado mais baixo e de 56,70 metros na parte mais alta. A espessura das paredes na base mede 4,09 metros e 2,48 metros no topo. Seu peso é estimado em 14 500 toneladas . A torre tem 296 ou 294 degraus: o sétimo andar da face Norte das escadas tem dois degraus a menos. Antes do trabalho de restauração realizado entre 1990 e 2001, a torre estava inclinada com um ângulo de 5.5 graus, estando agora a torre inclinada em cerca de 3.99 graus. Isto significa que o topo da torre está a uma distância de 3.9m de onde ela estaria, se a torre estivesse perfeitamente na vertical ______________________________ The Leaning Tower of Pisa (Italian: Torre pendente di Pisa) or simply the Tower of Pisa (La Torre di Pisa) is the campanile, or freestanding bell tower, of the cathedral of the Italian city of Pisa. It is situated behind the Cathedral and is the third oldest structure in Pisa's Cathedral Square (Piazza del Duomo) after the Cathedral and the Baptistry. Although intended to stand vertically, the tower began leaning to the southeast soon after the onset of construction in 1173 due to a poorly laid foundation and loose substrate that has allowed the foundation to shift direction. The height of the tower is 55.86 m (183.27 ft) from the ground on the low side and 56.70 m (186.02 ft) on the high side. The width of the walls at the base is 4.09 m (13.42 ft) and at the top 2.48 m (8.14 ft). Its weight is estimated at 14,500 metric tons (16,000 short tons). The tower has 296 or 294 steps; the seventh floor has two fewer steps on the north-facing staircase. Prior to restoration work performed between 1990 and 2001, the tower leaned at an angle of 5.5 degrees, but the tower now leans at about 3.99 degrees. This means that the top of the tower is 3.9 metres (12 ft 10 in) from where it would stand if the tower were perfectly vertical
