I imagine that once I do get the weight off the tummy will still be there. So I'm trying to convince my kids that once they grow up and get really good jobs they should pay to put mommy's body back to where it once was...lol.
Not sure I'm being convincing enough, but I'm trying..LOLOL
I am lower than my pre-pregnancy weight but I look worse than I did before I got pregnant. Granted I am still trying to lose another 30 pounds. I know the reason is because my stomach was tighter back then and now with loose skin...gravity is making my stomach pooch out lol.
I have a feeling its going to take a lot of work to get it tight again but in reality I think it may just take more time for the skin shrink again..or at least that is what I keep telling myself.
I would imagine that if i can get my body fat % at the lower end of what is healthy.....that there would be nothing or very little to make my stomach pooch in the first place.
If you look around at the before and after photos of women on here who have met their goals and had several kids you will see it is possible..just gotta keep working at it like they did.
I can't believe I am down over 70 pounds since last year!
I was heavy before I got pregnant and have lost much more than I gained while pregnant, my belly has no interest in disappearing! I look heavier now that I was then! It is very discouraging, especially when the pounds stop dropping. But keep working at it, I am convinced that someday I'll get there!

I recently got down to my pre-pregnancy weight! Which i was very happy about, but i have found that i still have a little belly and my clothes still don't fit quite right. I am going for another 5 pounds, but it is discouraging. Anyone else have this issue?
Also the weight was coming off well until I hit my goal, but now that i want to go farther it isn't coming off and in fact i am gaining a bit. I know i haven't eaten the best lately, but it is still discouraging. My plan it to try and track my food everyday this week. This will be no small feat as we have family coming in that we see maybe once a year and there will be lots and lots of food.
I am a proud Mommy trying to loose the pregnancy weight.
