What exactly does LOOSE skin look like

I know what loose skin looks like after someone who was heavy and lost alot of weight in a shore period of time. But I was wondering if I might have it.
I am 139 pounds 5'5. Now its a common thing in my family to have that tummy pouch, before I had my son mine was rather small, but after I the c-section it was bigger. The first month home I thought I was definately doomed to have loose skin since it hung, but now 2 yrs later it has lifted and when I suck in my stomach it flattens somewhat. If you press on it, its really hard just like the rest of my stomach.There is a crease in it that I use to chart if its lifting, when I first found the crease it was really low now its in the middle of the pouch. So is this loose skin or just something that if I work on could go away?

Thumbs up Re: What exactly does LOOSE skin look like

I thought it is the skin that for example sags under your arm when you stretch them out!
