I started at curves 2 months ago. so far i've only had one weigh in/measurement. My first month I lost 12.5 lbs and a little over 8 inches. I am 28, 5'6, and tipped the scales at 299 when I started at curves. (first weigh in i was down to 287) I have my next weigh in on monday. I'm hoping for results somewhere close to what I seen in the first month but I don't really feel like I've done nearly as well this month.

Thanks for your info. I have a lot of weight to lose and I was just curious about the excess skin. I guess when I get to my goal weight I won't have any qualms about getting surgery to remove the excess skin if it is necessary.
