Thank you for giving me a bit more info! Stretched body skin can shrink if you lose weight slowly and do plenty of muscle tightening exercises like situps for the abdomen. You can also investigate treatments at beauty salons because some of them like body wrapping may well help. If your skin does not shrink then you can get assistance from a plastic surgeon. At an obesity congress awhile ago, speakers reported good results from plastic surgery to remove loose skin after large scale weightloss. I have also heard that some of the Biggest Loser contestants who lost 20 kg and more, did have plastic surgery afterwards to remove loose skin.
Keep up the good work and go lots of sit-ups.
