I'm working on it :) I figure I won't really know just how bad mine is until I lose a lot more weight since I'm carrying a lot of extra in that area anyway. I don't even care if it prevents me from wearing a bikini this summer as long as there's no visible intertube-bulge in a one-piece lol

I still have mine even after losing 40 lbs. It is hanging on for dear life and I imagine it will hang on right to the end and beyond. I know I will always have it, short of surgery but I would like it to shrink a bit.

I *think* what will happen is that it will hold on even once I reach my goal weight *but* will continue to shrink after I hit my maintenance weight while I continue with core work, cardio and a healthy diet. It may take up to 2 years to catch up with the rest of the changes to my body. So that's what I have to prepare myself for. Just make sure you're doing plenty of core work and exercises to work your transverse abs.

Hold in there. I would recommend that in the meantime you pay attention to the parts of your body that are making huge changes but it could be a long time before you see much change in that area. So divert your attention for now.

Take your focus off the Marshmallow.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

Please tell me I am not the only one who had a vaginal birth who has this. This has been plaguing me for almost 8 months now and while it seems to be shrinking (I say "seems" because I don't know if it's really going away or if I'm just adjusting to it) but I'm afraid that even after I lose the rest of my baby weight (46 pounds to go!) it will still be here as a sad, stretched out flap of skin similar to Adam Sandler's in the movie Click.
If you have/have ever had it, does it go away? Is there hope without surgery?
