Easy. Loose weight slowly. Don't try to go on a massive caloric deficit - too exteme a cut will give you the loose skin problem. You'll need to determine what your calorie intake / expendature is as a starting point. A lot of it is trial and error, but avoid extemes.

Go to www.fat2fitradio.com and work your way thru their caloric calculators based upon your daily cloric expenditures. Put yourself ona slightly negative caloric diet, and do not try to lose more than 1-2 lbs a week.

There's really nothing you can do about the skin unless you have a time machine - losing weight slowly is just going to discourage some people. Que sera sera. It's more important to get weight down, the positives far outweigh the skin.
