Over the course of my training I've lost about 80 pounds of fat. The problem is, no that I'm getting close to a sixpack, the skin around my lower gut, which is lined withh stretch marks, won't let my lower abby show. Most of the creams I've looked at are made for women who will become pregnant, and allow their skin to strech without creating stretch marks. But I'm coming from the opposite way. What can I do? P.S. I'm currently stacking Win/Sus, will those help?

Without surgery, I think your only option would be to get huge and fill it in with big ass muscles!

How long has it been? Over time lots of that will tighten up naturally..

Right now I am at 5'11" 225 at @9%, I want to be the same weight at like 6%....I expect to be in about 16 - 20 weeks....about 2 1/2 years ago I was 260 at like 22% and real thick around the midsection (classic powerlifting build)....but then cut down to around 205 so I could run, but BF wasn't great...like 12% or so....so I guess its been about 20 months or so since I lost all the weight...anyway, u can grab handfuls of skin off my stomach...I look like one of those puppys that u can pick up with the skin....I have the feeling 6% won't look as good as it would otherwise

I once heard you get all new skin every 6 years but I don't believer it. I don't think it applies to skin that has stretch marks or scar tissue.

How old are you Bigtoe? Skin looses its elasticity after age 34 or thereabouts, from what I have read. If you under that age, then your skin might tighten up naturally in time. If not, then surgery is the only option.

Thanks for all the info folks. I'm 22 so hopefully my skin will rebound. I was going along with RacerXHGHs line of reasoning and just trying to bulk up my abs enough to stick out. If all else fails, fishing knives all around!
