    Angry Still Flabby at Goal Weight!

    I have been doing okay with my weight loss plan. I just made a few small changes, and it seemed to work. I lost 10 pounds, and I now weigh 115. That was my goal, but I still look really flabby! Especially in my stomach and legs. In fact, I really don't see that I have lost any weight, but other people notice and my clothes fit looser. I am doing pilates and jogging. Why do I still look so soft and flabby? Do I need to change my goal to 100? That seems unreasonable, but it's starting to look like I should do that. By the way, no I am not anorexic.

    do you do any weight training or resistance training at all? It doesn't help to be skinny if you have no muscle tone... If you build up and tone your muscles I think you will see a difference- even at 20- 25 lbs over GW I still see a difference in definition from working out with weights. Good luck!

    Weight training is the answer. It really helps tone up the muscles.

    I'll say it too

    I'll say it too. You have to lift weights. There are so many good reasons why a person should lift weights, even if they're not trying to lose weight or tighten loose skin. It's good for your heart. It improves blood circulation to the skin. It helps prevent bone and muscle loss which anyone over 25 should be concerned about. It increases flexibility. I think a lot of people dismiss weight training thinking that it's for people who want to bulk up or athletes. It really is something everyone should be doing. In your case, it will also tighten skin and the lactic acid buildup from weight lifting will indirectly cause your body to burn fat.
