Ok, I am a mother of three, recently having given birth to
twins last summer. I am '5,9" and 145-150 lbs. I
exercise at home....mostly abdominal exercises. I also
run if the weather is permissible, which during the
winter...isn't. I want to be in absolute great shape and
feel good about my body. I feel I have a good body, but
not a great one....I want to be completely toned. What
exercises should I do at my age our what should I be
I much prefer informative articles like this to
that high blow literature.
I'm a mom of 3 and a half old baby....I hate my belly with such loose skin and fat around my waist...my figure looks out of order..no dress suits me ..I'm 59kgs with 5.1.....please help.

year, and would like to loose some weight around my

Hi, I just had my first baby
in April 2006. I had to have a c-section, I was 166 lbs
and wearing a size 18 jeans and now I am down to 133lbs
and I can fit into a size 7 to an 8. I am still having
problems with my stomach though. it is still rather
doughy. My jeans do fit when I'm standing up but when I
sit down I have this roll of fat that sticks out. I HATE
it so much! I want to know what I need to do to lose more
of my stomach and is it possible? I am 5 foot 1 and am
still 133lbs. I know I'm doing good but like I said, I
want to lose that the part of my stomach that sticks out
when I sit down. I am firmed up everywhere else but my
stomach. another question I had is how can I lose my back
fat? it is so visible after I put my bra on, I hate
wearing tight shirts because I feel so fat in them due to
my back fat. or could my bra's possibly be too tight? if
so how to I figure out what is the right bra for me? all
answers are deeply appreciated. Thank you. t>
I m a mother for a six month
old daughter, I gain weight for about 6 kilos I m 168 cm
tall, and 66 kg I m so depressed I got to loose weight in

someone to give me the solution to my problem please its
Hi. I'm 47, 5'1 and about 50
pounds overweight. I was thin even after having my four
children until about 10 years ago when it began to creep
on. I have always had a "tummy" even when I was
underweight...it seems to run in my family. My aunts and
my sister who have never had children or been overweight
even have "pots". I am working on it all now with diet and
exercise and have begun to lose. My concern is that my
abdomen is so loose and flabby, all the way down to and
including the entire pubic area. I am so self-conscious
that it has all but destroyed my sex life with my husband.
And then there's my butt... or rather the absence of it.
I, like my mother before me have noassatall syndrome and
though I quip it is very disheartening. What little tiny
bit of cheek there may have been at one time it sags to a
teeny point right at the center at the lowest area so it
sort of pulls the muscles around my anus down and it all
looks horrible! (even discussing it here is difficult) I
hate my body from just beneath my breasts to just above my
thighs. I can't even look at myself in the mirror. I'm not
totally negative, though; really. I have great breasts and
they're real, I have a very pretty face and look about 10
years younger in the face than I actually am. (that too
runs in my family). I have great hair (thick and
curly-ringlets, not course) and I have great legs and
pretty feet. So I have a lot going for me still but I need
to know what to do about my belly and my butt??!! And
also, once I lose the weight will I still have a pudgy
pubic area? This is just gross! I can't believe that any
amount of exercise will help enough. Is plastic surgery
going to be my only.
I had a Hysterectomy approx.
1 year ago and I gained weight. I am 5ft 4in and have
always weighed 130-135lbs. I now weigh 160lbs. I really
need to lose weight from my abs, tummy area and bust. Can
you advise me?
My wife gave birth to our
daughter 10 years ago and is not much of an exercise buff.
She has some loose skin around her belly that bothers her,
but does not bother me! She wants to know if any abdominal
exercises will help to get rid of the loose skin around
her midsection. Can you help?
Signed happy with the status quo, but am trying to help
Gosh, I thought I was alone
with my belly fat. I am 5'2", lost 3 1b in 4 weeks on
1,100 cal per day, healthy, balanced diet. Though my
weight varies during the day by 2.lb, I am currently 130
lb. the trend is very slowly downward which is pleasing
but my tummy is fatter than ever. Crunches don't do a
thing. I am 43, no children, so no excuses about
childbirth being to blame. Its a comfort to read all the
posts about this and I have total sympathy for everyone
struggling with belly fat. Its depressing.

was 120, and I have gained, I cannot lose, I've tried

Everything went downhill after the surgery. After having 2
kids it has been worse for me to be able to get a flat

time, I eat a healthy diet all the time, and my stomach
still doesn't go down. Do you have any suggestions?
Hi, I am 23 mother of three,

Hi, I have tummy, fat hip &
fat thighs. I am out of shape I need to loose my wait. My
height 5.1 & weight 65 kg. Please do the needful.
I'm 34, I have three
daughters 17, 14, and 7. I am 5'8" and weigh about 145lbs.
I used to be an exotic dancer till about a month ago. I'm
a full time college student now. My question is this, what
does an average woman my height and weight look like? I
have a TERRIBLE self image. I know there is what everyone
else sees then there's what I see. And to be honest I
don't know what everyone else sees that's so appealing. I
can still see the hip, rib and collar bones that I seen
when I weighed 120 lbs. I know that 2o lbs should make a
difference but I'm NOT seeing it. I used to think that
when I hit the 140 mark I would be happy with my body,
unfortunately I don't feel it. If anyone has pics they can
share with me PLEASE do I just need some idea of what I
can compare myself to so maybe I can realize that I do
look different. I know it kind of sounds crazy but I think
it maybe worth a shot.
Hi, I'm 13, 110 pounds, and

But now I realize that there's more important things than
your weight. Confidence. Anyways, I used these tips before
I realized that everyone though I was thin. I'm at a
healthy body weight, and I realize that I don't need to
lose weight. But..
Remember, vinegar is good.
One of the best things going. If you have a salad, use
vinegar! Ranch dressing, and other dressings are high in
fat and are very unhealthy.
NEVER SKIP BREAKFAST, THE
MOST IMPORTANT MEAL OF THE DAY!! Infect, don't skip any
DON'T OVER EAT! Take away
little food a day! Take away from your daily intake! Your
body will then become used to that, and then you will more
than likely lose some weight.
DON'T LISTEN TO THE WEIGHT
SCALE! If you listen, and exercise everyday, then you will
increase your muscle size, and muscle weights more than
Listen to the measurements
of your waist instead.
Good luck, and stick to

chubby arms and love handles. I have absolutely no clue as

I had a baby boy 5 months
ago. I had a cesarean delivery. My belly still looks like
I am 6 months pregnant. People say this is because of the
c-section, that I am swollen and it takes longer to go
down. I don't think I should look like I am still 6 months
though. Does anyone know what this is? Does anyone have
any advice for exercises? I NEED to get rid of my belly. I
know it's not going to go completely flat but I need to
not look pregnant anymore. Thanks.
Like almost everyone here
has belly and love handle problems, so do I. I know what I
should eat and I know that I need to exercise more. I am
pretty active for the most part, but I just can't seem to
stop craving sweets. If I allow myself to have a little, I
want more and give in. If I don't let myself have it, I
want it more and give in again. How do I not give into the
cravings or control them? Is there a fun exercise tape
that anyone likes if so please let me know because the
ones I have suck.
I am 31 yrs. old. I am a
black woman. I had surgery at child birth almost 6 yrs.
ago. I have had the hardest time of losing my belly fat. I
think I have tried every diet and exercise under the sun.
What can I do to lose my belly, love-handles, buttocks,
thighs, hips etc.? What is the solution for losing this
weight. It seems to me that, more women that have had
surgery delivering their babies have the hardest time
losing all of this excess weight (unless you you get a
tummy-tuck and/or plastic surgery). Help me! I need help!
Hello all. I am 31 years old

doctor said if I take off some weight I wont have the pain
in my knee as much. Good luck everyone. Bikini here I

Hey, I'm 13 5'2 and I way
230lbs....I really want to lose weight and keep it off. My
blood pressure is high as well, and I get out of breath
really easy, but have not been told I have asthma. People
make fun of me because I'm fat because I'm in middle
school and that's how kids act. Really, what I'd like to
be able to do at least by around Christmas time next year
is loose 115lbs, the only problem is I can't do that
without starving myself.
I weigh about 135 and I am
5'5". I seem to gain most of my weight in my stomach. I
have done some weight training for about a year and a
little bit of cardio. I don't want to loose weight I just
want to slim my stomach down. I'd rather the weight go to
my lower body but it loves to go to my stomach. Does this
have to do with estrogen? I am young so it shouldn't, can

could increase my bust size.
