Loose Skin After Weight Loss
After losing -67lbs in 42 weeks from Mounjaro, I frequently get asked, “Do you have loose skin after weight loss?!”.
Why yes. Yes, I do!
Below are my 5 solutions for what has worked well for me for my loose skin due to weight loss.
I want to be clear that the only way to remove fully loose saggy skin after weight loss is through skin removal surgery.
HOWEVER, my 5 solutions that have worked well for me have helped me greatly and helped my confidence greatly!
Tip 1: Recognizing that a lotion or potion is not going suddenly remove loose skin, I do have a cream that has dramatically helped the texture of my body skin.
I find this cream out of the 100s I have bought and tested is the best.
It’s not going to change your life, but for me, it has made a dramatic difference for my skin.
I have worn this cream during the summer in my bathing suit when I felt self conscious…but ended up slaying my swimsuit!
My legs, stomach and arms look so much better when I apply this cream.
Again, not life-changing, but is very noticeable the difference!
Even our 90lb foster dog wanted to see what the action was about with Crepe Erase Cream!

Tip 2: Intermittent Fasting
There is so much science behind intermittent fasting benefits.
Dr. Jason Fung has so much scientific data behind intermittent fasting in his book, The Obesity Code.
(In my non-scientific way) Intermittent fasting can lead to autophagy, which is where junk cells get destroyed through fasting. You need to hit certain fasting times to get autophagy.
Through autophagy from fasting, can lead to less loose skin.
In fact, Dr. Jason Fung has never had to recommend loose skin surgery to his weight loss patients as a result.

Tip 3: Protein
I have been focused on protein on my -67lb (so far!) weight loss journey.
Read more about 125 Protein Ideas (HERE).
Tip 4: Collagen
I consume collagen by eating gristle in meat and also through supplements.
Collagen helps to prevent sagging skin.
My favorite collagen is easy to consume.
It takes 3 months to see a difference in my hair with collagen.

Tip 5: Drinking more water
Seems easy, but sometimes I get so busy I don’t drink as much water as I should.
Staying hydrated helps to keep skin looking plump and hydrated.
I may have loose skin, but by-gum it won’t be dry, dull loose skin. 😉
Here are 5 Tips To Drink More Water (READ MORE).

Step 1: Starting off with a great body exfoliant for the shower. The best body scrub:

Mounjaro Weight Loss
Sharp Container – You will need somewhere to dispose of your Mounjaro, Wegovy or Ozempic syringe after injecting it. I love this container, but it’s smaller to fight underneath your bathroom sink, but large enough to fit the Mounjaro injection afterwards. SHOP HERE.1) Biohazard Needle & Syringe Disposal
Alcohol Prep Pads
Alcohol Prep Pads For Injection Site – I didn’t realize prior to my Mounjaro injections that I should make sure my injection site was clean with an alcohol pads. I love these because they are so little I can easily store them with my other Mounjaro items. SHOP HERE.
