Tough call: You may have developed excess skin due to your obesity, and that may not go away even though you exercise. How long were you overweight? Women who are pregnant are only distended for a few months, at most. The skin is streched during pregnancy, and then rebounds. And many women do have tummy tucks, (witch hazel) so surgery is not unheard of. A personal trainer may be able to help target specific muscle groups.
