loose skin isn't that easy to get rid of. once you balloon up up a hundred pounds + like he did, your skin stretches to accomodate the larger body. it takes many months, even years for your skin to tighten down to a new and smaller size when you drop that much weight. give the guy some credit, its the best shape he's been in in years.
