How to shrink stretch marks & loose skin?

overweight due to depression, but i'm near my weight goal. 20-40lbs more (depending on how i feel)... (lost about 50-60lbs) now that im deciding to commit to a healthy lifestyle, wanna see if i can fix at least some if not all of the damage i did to myself when i was careless. it would be kind to not be judgemental, this was quite a long and emotional journey for me. any help tips may help, thank you and god bless

Good for you -- it's awesome that you've chosen to become healthier!
The bad news -- there's not much you can do to get rid of the skin that left when you lose a great deal of weight.
Building up your muscles will help tighten up the loose skin somewhat, and it'd be good for you overall health, as well. If you don't already have a workout routine, it'd be a great time to start one; however, if you have a LOT of excess skin, surgery to remove it is the only way you'll get rid of it.
Don't let that discourage you, keep up the good work & healthy lifestyle! :)

Banged is correct. Loose skin, stretch marks are a result of weight loss. Aside from cosmetic surgery nothing can really be done. Building muscle can help support skin tone. Congratulations! Good luck!
