Loose skin and stretch marks
Just started P90X and lovin it so far. I have a very large belly and looking forward to losing it. Just wondering what to expect in the way of stretch marks and loose skin? Anyone have any problems or issues with this? Any recommendations or advice greatly appreciated!

I have done the program twice and have lost a little over 125 lbs and 16 inches off my waist line. Although I am not 100% firm yet I can tell you that as long as you lose the weight slowly and correctly you should not have to worry too much about lose skin. As for the stretch marks, I have some myself and although they are nowhere near as noticable as they once were they are not completely gone. Of course everyone is different, I lost 80 of my 125 lbs in the first 8 months so that may have been a little too quick which is why I have some loose skin but I am confident it will improve as I continue to get healthy and workout. Like I said I went from a 46 to a 30 and don't deal with the loose skin issue too much.
