Popular Instagrammer Rachel Graham has shared a side effect of weight loss we don’t normally see.
In a post shared to her 100,000 followers, Graham answered the question, ‘How did you avoid loose skin and stretch marks?’ with a very honest reply: She didn’t.
‘Its all there,’ wrote Graham who lost 90 lbs (40 kilograms). ‘High waisted bottoms have become my bff.’
The anxiety posting this is REAL. Taken a few minutes apart, flexing in the first. "How did you avoid loose skin and stretch marks?" Heyyyyy, I didn't! Its all there. High waisted bottoms have become my bff. Do I regret losing weight? Hellllll noooooo. NEVER. Not even a slightest thought. I am more FIT than I've ever been in my entire life. Happier. HEALTHIER. I'd be lying if I said my loose skin wasn't an insecurity of mine.. But I refuse to let it consume me. It doesn't hold me back like the weight used to. This stomach has grown two beautiful boys.. Has been through a 90lb+ gain and loss (100lb+ lost from my highest weight while pregnant!) Will you have loose skin after losing weight? I can't answer that for you, everyBODY is different. Will it be worth it, regardless? YES. Also for those who have asked.. I do plan to have surgery some day, but in the mean time I'm just working on self loooovvveeee. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ BE KINDDDD, I delete negativity ? (No itworks, creams, lotions, yada yada) #nofilter #stretchmarks
Despite the side-effect, Graham says she doesn’t regret losing weight.
‘I am more FIT than I’ve ever been in my entire life. Happier. HEALTHIER,’ she said adding, ‘I’d be lying if I said my loose skin wasn’t an insecurity of mine.. But I refuse to let it consume me. It doesn’t hold me back like the weight used to.’
Hump dayyyy! Great workout this morning. Now making lunch, and then off for a walk with my boys. Hope you're all having a great week! Sorry my posts have been a bit slack, I haven't been feeling well since Sunday night.. Much better today though! "Not the same person, her hair is different!" ? Abouuuut a 70lb difference in these, of 90lb total!
However, she does plan to have her excess skin removed in the future. ‘I do plan to have surgery some day, but in the mean time I’m just working on self loooovvveeee.’
