Help whip my post-obesity body into shape

I used to be obese. I have lost about 80 pounds out of my goal of 100 lost, and am struggling to lose the rest. My body, even though I am in my mid 20s, is now a complete mess. I am covered in stretch marks from head to toe. I’m hardly exaggerating. They start at my shoulders and don’t let up until my calves. I have big hanging flaps of skin and fat under my arms. Some bits of stretch marks and loose skin on my tummy, hips, thighs, and rear. I look like I had a baby or four. My breasts sag and are also covered in stretch marks. I’m aware that I’ll likely only ever look normal by plastic surgery, but what I am looking for is how to improve my body as much as I can through accessible methods until I can begin to afford surgery (or better, avoid it). I’ve tried searching Google and here, but I can’t seem to find the right information. Lots of questions/background inside. [more inside]

Flabby McFlabberston

I've been (somewhat successfully) losing weight. Plus, I'm getting older, so things on my body are...shifting. Any suggestions for what to do about excessive flesh? My particular problem areas are my upper thighs. It's not fat. It's the excess skin that used to be stretched over fat. Help?!?!?

How to avoid baggy skin after weight-loss?

How to avoid skin sagging with extreme weight loss? I need to lose about 200lbs, currently I'm losing about 2-3lbs a week (about 20lbs so far) so this is a long term plan but I don't want to reach my goal weight and be a bag of sagging skin. Is there anything I can start doing now to avoid that? I'm fairly young (not yet 30) and my skin elasticity is good if that's relevant. There's a lot of skin tightening creams on the market but do any of them actually work? A lot are just wrinkle creams or anti-cellulite creams.

Can I apply exercise calories to the next day?

When one is dieting by maintaining a small calorie deficit, is it appropriate to apply calories burned via one day's exercise to the next day's calorie total? Since I can't predict beforehand what days I'll have an opportunity to exercise, I can't plan ahead. Since I exercise rather late in the evening, binging the amount of calories after I return (directly before bed) would probably send 'em directly to my waist regardless of how much I'd just exercised.
