Thanks for the advice. Ive had the ok to exercise since 16weeks post, been losing weight, that extra bit of skin is my main problem. I didnt think about a collagen cream though. I have read about "body wraps" too. People say they work and Ive looked up homemade ones, but I just dont see the point. I get it that you sweat, but thats really just water weight. I dont see how effective it would be. Might try a homemade one at night while I sleep. They say to use cellulite cream? Anyone ever used or made a homemade wrap before?
