Vulnerable post: I get asked about loose skin all the time. I’ve lost 326 pounds so far, and I’m still on my journey…of course I have loose skin! But that will change. It will shrink up a bit by hitting my healthy weight, I make sure to stay hydrated to improve skin elasticity, and I do have age on my side. It’s all a part of the process. This skin is a battle scar of a life now being lived to its fullest. It’s a reminder of how far I’ve come as well as a push to keep going. I’m not going for “hot” or even skinny. I’m going for healthy 🙂 I’ll take this loose skin as trade for being the best teacher, daughter, girlfriend, coach, friend, and overall person I can be. Let the flab be free! 😆———————————————————- #TSFL #exercise #weekend #progressnotperfection #healthcoach #optavia #motivation #girlswholift #goals #transformation #skin #weightlossmotivation #obesetobeast #health #weightlosstransformation #fitfam #followers #fatgirlfedupsdietbet #inspiration #fitspo #flexfriday #BeforeAndAfter #mybiggerlife #weightlossjourney #weightlosscommunity #igaccountability #instafitness #picoftheday #transformationtuesday #friyay

May has more than 30,000 people following her weight loss journey, and she said her is “all part of the process.” Rather than comparing herself to others or feeling discouraged, she’s viewing her skin positively and embracing her goal to be the best version of herself.

“This skin is a battle scar of a life now being lived to its fullest,” she wrote. “It’s a reminder of how far I’ve come as well as a push to keep going. I’m not going for 'hot' or even skinny. I’m going for healthy … I’ll take this loose skin as trade for being the best teacher, daughter, girlfriend, coach, friend, and overall person I can be. Let the flab be free!”

Losing a significant amount of weight often leaves people with excess skin, and many decide to go under the knife to remove it. Whether or not May chooses surgery, her decision to reflect and appreciate her body is as inspiring as her motivation to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
