use this workout and this diet to lose weight on a busy schedule like that

Since your lacking time to do gym time, try power walking with your kids.
Start at 10 minutes each walk and every week add 10 minutes. Sounds like your schedule is pretty hectic and stressful, make sure to pack fruit for those times you are stressed and start to crave junk. Healthy sugars will help supply the serotonin your burning through and create that 'good feeling' your brain likes to have.

After you are able to go for hour long walks with your kids, you can add another walk. I would avoid jogging or any other type of cardio til you drop a couple hundred pounds. The pounding on your joints is something to avoid until your much lighter.

Hope this helps. Eat lots of veggies with meals. Great tummy fillers :)

Im 5'4" and had got up to 210lbs by the time I had my son Im now 180lbs from breastfeeding but my skin is all loose and stretchy.

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 ounces..so 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..?!)

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.
