Fat or Loose Skin? (Pictures)?

I'm a female turning 19 in a couple weeks and have recently lost 66 pounds, and started in may of last year. I am 5'9 and started out at a weight of 246 pounds and am now weighing in at 180! I lost the weight very quickly and I'm scared that I have loose fat that won't go back... SO scared! I was so excited about the weight loss and getting to show off a body this summer.. will it really not go back by then? I have been walking every night for the passed few months and a few days ago I started adding pushups and situps, etc. Anyway, any oppinions or suggestions are accepted here. Thankyou.

(leaning in.. I believe these are just love handle type things?)


and.. can you tell me which areas you think are fat and which are loose skin, and maybe roughly how much more weight I should lose? thank you!!!

Answer on Fat or Loose Skin? (Pictures)?

I can see some lose skin, but considering your weight is 180 at 5'9, you would also have a lot of fat.

According to the BMI calculator, your a bit overweight.

But excellent job on tossing those pounds away. Don't lose weight to quickly or else the loose skin will come on. (you already know that)

160 pounds is a reasonable weight for a 5'9 girl.
