The only thing you can do other than learning to live with it, is to have plastic surgery to have it removed. Considering how much excess skin you would have from being so big, I would think your health insurance would pay for at least one surgery to have at least your pannus (hanging belly) removed as it can be a health issue. Check with your insurance. And congrats on the 200 lb loss!!

Definitely check with your insurance, hopefully they'll cover the removal. Good luck!
