Greetings everyone! Although I am well-versed regarding nutrition, I am still an infant when it comes to muscle building and toning. So I need some advice from those "in the know."
I am now 21 years, 180 lbs, 6'2" tall. When I was younger (around 13-14) I lost around 100 pounds in less than a year. Since, I have not ever been obese, but my weight has fluctuated. I say all of that to say the following:
I still have a glaring problem with excess skin just hanging on my lower mid-section. It is not a grotesque amount, but it is certainly noticeable.
I am starting a new routine (the Homegrown Muscle Program from Men's Health) in an effort to put on some muscle to help.
This is my question: I don't want surgery, but can I flatten my body and "fill-in" my extra skin by gaining muscle and weight or do you all think surgery may be required.
I know that this issue has been talked to death, and I apologize for yet running it in the ground again, but I want to take the initiative and obtain some advice from you all who know and may have had similar experiences. Thank you a thousand times. Though I am reluctant to post pictures (it is somewhat personal) I am willing to do so if it would help in the counseling. Thank you.
