One day I just woke up and realized that I can’t touch yesterday. So why the heck was I letting it touch me?Steve Maraboli (via versteur)
Hey poppet. Firstly thank you- it’s always nice to hear.
For me- it’s not a simple answer. I have stretch marks from being overweight- quite a lot, which have affected the elasticity of my skin, as scar tissue isn’t quite like normal healthy skin. But I’m also not where I want to be fitness and size wise yet- I still want to lose in the region of 20lbs. I have noticed some looser skin around my stomach, and tops of my legs (also consider I am a stereotypical pear shape so that’s where I carried most of my weight)
But- ask yourself- is stretched skin that bad? For me personally, I’d rather be healthier and fitter than I am now then remain as I was but have slightly “tighter” skin.
I wouldn’t say loose skin is anything to stop you on your journey :)
do you ever just get the overwhelming urge to cry because you think you’re not going to go far in life because you’re not as smart or as talented as the people around you
