I was fat from childhood until age 54 (six years ago) when I began losing, very gradually. I'm 5'10 1/2" and was always around 250, but 270 at my absolute peak. I've been stable at 155 for about a year and a half now. The loose skin makes me feel ugly. So even though I can't afford a tuck, I'm considering it. My butt is a similar problem.
