Losing Weight - need some preventive cellulite and stretch mark advice

I'm working on losing weight. 20 lbs so far!!!! Have a bit to go. Right now I don't have cellulite - the fat is smoothing that out. And no stretch marks - knock on wood. I would like to start using something now to minimize these as the weight comes off. Any Suggestions?

Wow congratulations, what an accomplishment.  I know how difficult it is to lose weight!  As far as cellulite, it's basically the way fat lies under your skin, so if you're losing fat, you probably can eliminate it as well.  I assume you're doing some kind of aerobic exercise which helps too. There are some creams that make your skin look smoother, (one by Bliss is called fat girl slim).  In my opinion, the tendency to form stretch marks is a hereditary thing.  I gained a ton of weight when I was pregnant and did not get one, but I know of other people who gained less weight but got a lot.  Again, if you haven't seen any yet after a 20 lb weight loss, you probably won't.  Good luck!

I've been taking the Dr Max Powers Burn for two years now. It was recommended by my doctor after I stopped smoking and gained quite a bit of weight. 
I lost 60 pounds but also dieted vigorously and exercised regularly at the gym on the treadmill for 35 minutes.  Also, not only fried chicken and fried food have fat. Any kind of red meat has fat content. Rule of thumb for me is if calories from fat are high, I take a pill with the meal. This Dr Max Burn is a lifesaver but it only works with diet and exercise.

Strivectin is the classic stretch mark and cellulite cream, but it is somewhat pricey. Keep your skin hydrated as you lose weight, it will help with the prevention of stretch marks and cellulite doesn't show up as much on hydrated skin. (I can tell when my skin is dry in the winter as my cellulite shows more, of course, I'm not wearing a swimsuit, thank goodness for that)!!! Drink plenty of water too.

Hope this helps, and huge congratulations on your hard work losing the weight!  Go girl!!!
