51 and starting to have saggy skin around arms and upper legs

I am 51 and noticing that my skin is wrinkling around my elbows, upper arms, knees, and upper thighs. My face is pretty much wrinkle free. In fact, I always looked about 7 yrs. younger than my actual age. I have lost about 20 pounds since last year. I have started exercising, hoping that toning up my skin will rid the wrinkles. But, I am just toner with wrinkly skin.
My older sister at age of 57 does not have this problem. Any suggestions, on creams, or anything to use? Of course, I know some plastic surgery would do the trick, but I cannot afford to do that.

I have same problem but have noticed your thread was in 2008 and seem to have no replies!! Does that mean we are a lost cause or have you in the meantime found a solution.
