    over the course of a year or two i've lost about 15 kilo (33 pound) of fat and put on a decent amount of muscle, i'm benching 30 kilo dumbells (66 pound) and although its not where i want to be, im getting there.

    anyways, my question is, with all this weight i've lost i've got excess skin that hasnt seem to go away, i dont have stretch marks or fat in the common places (near tricep, around chest, stomach) i've just got this lose skin. has anyone had this/trained anyone thats lost alot of weight, and is there anything i can do to get rid of this short of surgery? will it go away with time?

    thanks dudes

    is it in any way important to helping me with my question? i told you what i bench in 1st post, havent done squats in a while, but im leg pressing 200 kg, and i cant remember what i was dead lifting last (somewhere around 20kg a side? + other side + olympic bar lands me somewhere in the 60-70 kilo region?), either way at the moment ive been neglecting DL's for weighted chinups.

    the only thing that will get rid of that skin is surgical removal.

    Mine is tightening up a little. But its the combination of getting to a lower BF percentage/drinking a lot of water/building more mass/time
