Dear Ella
If you lose weight slowly and at the same time do plenty of exercises that target the tummy (e.g. sit-ups, etc) then you should not have sagging skin. If you lose weight very rapidly and do develop loose skin then you may have to ask a plastic surgeon to do a tummy tuck for you. Ask Fitness Doc on this Website for exercises that specifically target the stomach muscles.
