I'm 35, 5'7", 220#... I've had four c-s... my youngest just turned 5 & my oldest is 16. I need to get my abs back because I'm starting to have lower back pain. Please help. Oh, and I'm on a dieting loop, lowering calories just doesn't work long-term, and I've finally figured out I'm a protein type.

HI, I have three kids,with my first child my stomach went straight to being flat again, with my second it was flat but it looked like an old person face(old,sagging and wrinkled), and with this last pregnancy i gained a total of 40lbs during pregnancy, I lost all the weight. I currently weigh about 125-130lbs I'm 5'1.. I am petite, but its hard losing the extra skin. My last baby stretched me completely he was 9lbs 7.8 of course wearing a gurdle doesn't help me much, my stomach just looks smoother but then i look pregnant all overs again, I work retail so i here it on a daily routine how far along am i, or its twins.. so if you can help me with my muffin top and extra skin i would really appreciate it.Oh, and it does seem that when after i excercise my stomach looks like it has extra air, i don't know how to describe it, and my belly button is an outy already now it just looks like a nose!!!

My c section was almost three years ago..I was 125 when I got pregnant.gained 50lbs..back to 126-129..but I have a tummy and unwanted back boobs..what's your advice on the best way to lose the bellowing out of the stomach along with the back chunk? My arms and legs are thin..fortunately. I'm not big on running and my diet could always be better but I want a 6 week goal..for a flatter stomach,can you make it happen..?!)

November 19, 2013


Hello I am a mother of 3 who had c sections with them all I never overall lost 50 pound's but the skin sticks out so far it is embarrassing. I'm willing to do whatever it takes to reduce it an or lose it all by next summer. I don't eat pork or beef just needing some uplifting an exercises that with time that will trully build my muscles back.

Coconut Milk is the best way to reduce fat, after c-section it's imperative that avoid fatty oily food and do not absorb calories.

I am 24, 4'10, and 209LBS!!!! I just had a baby 6mths ago via C-section. A healthy 8lb 1oz baby boy. M stomach is outrageous. After I had him I started to drastically lose weight the first two weeks. Then out of nowhere the weight slowly crept back. I can admit I hadn't changed my eating habits fully (still eating for two kind of thing). I am also breastfeeding but the only person who benefits from it is our son. I'm naturally small I didn't start gaining weight til after our first child via csection. I just want my body back please help. Nothing drastic I'll be content at 150-160lbs.

I used to be a gym rat (going 3hrs or more every other day alternating between cardio and weights) My belly was firm and elastic before I had my son via c-section, then it seems my belly just kind of deflated and now kind of hangs over. I can't really find the time or energy to exercise like I used to and I haven't really been sucessful at modifying my routine to get the same quality in less time. As a result I keep yo-yoing around my 9month pregnancy weight :(. I would really like to lose around 80 or so pounds by Christmas, any suggestions?
