    Build more muscle. Loose skin will eventually even out
  • Retin-A helps lessen stretch marks as well. It's a topical prescription cream that you can buy at Mercury over the counter.
  • haha, yay, more muscle... I'm on a roll these days. will do!

    & hmmm, Retin-A, I keep reminding myself to get a tube or so for my supposed varicose veins ever since, to no avail. but not anymore, yay!

    grazie! :ivy:
  • hi! ako rin may question.. I want to lose weight pero parang wala na yatang pag-asa huhu :( I'm 5' and weighs around 57kg. I tried after six diet and was able to lose 4kg, on the side I'm also doing pilates 4x a week. Since mejo nabobore na ako sa routine ko at ndi na ako naglolose, nagtry ako ng stationary bike, kaya lng I have been doing it for 4x a week for 20 mins for 3-4 weeks na pero parang alang effect. Ganun ba talaga un? Gusto ko sana maialis pa ung extra 7kg. Panu kaya?

    the key is proper diet in a healthy way(break small meals)
    etc...
    it's been a big problem for most people eyt?
    okie here it goes.
    1. try to break your meal in 6 small meals
    2. no carbs 6pm onwards
    3. try to maitain a ratio of 45:45:10 (carbs:protein:fats)
    4. stay away from white carbs instead oats, wheat, etc.
    5. hhmmm.. avoid excessive sugars and maa-alat.
    6. Exercise (cardio and gym

    ^_^

    something like that.. every individual is unique so try to figure out yourself..
    what works for me might not work for you..
