There aren't any exercises that can firm loose skin. The skin is pretty elastic when we're young and will go back to it's original shape, but as we age, it becomes less forgiving. If you're exercising, keep it up. The muscles will help fill out some of the excess skin. Also, when you've lost all the weight you intend to, then you'll be better able to see just how much exess skin you have. If it's just too much, it can be surgically removed.

Re: loose skin..

Genetics plays a HUGE role as well! I've been working on my ab's for 16yrs. Exersise of course helps.....BUT.........not the loose skin. Unfortunately, soemday you may need to talk to a PS about a tummy tuck. Read about all that on the cosmetic surgery board! So much helpful info there........keep up the exersise and diet.......................
