I have NO confirmation of this, it's a rumor at this point, but I heard from a member at my Curves that there are certain charities, such as burn units, that will do the skin-reduction surgeries for a minimal fee or for free if you donate the skin to their patients. it makes full sense to me and when I get to that point and more importantly when my boyfriend gets to that point, I will look more into it, but I've still got a way to go and he's got even more (he probably needs to lose 150 pounds. I'm not about to shell out the money to buy a scale to weigh him so we really don't know what he weighs currently, but he's too big, we do know that!)

maybe a google search might give you more info on reduced fee surgery if you are really in need...sometimes it just takes the skin a little longer to catch up with the loss tho....I would say not to do it right away, but rather, wait until after you've been maintaining for a while...a year or more. then if it still bothers you, do something about it because it will ALWAYS bother you!
