So embarrassed even writing this but needs must. I know my only solution is diet and exercise by the way, but I do feel it is a pre disposed type of shape and I have been unlucky. I look 8 months pregnant. It starts from between my rib cage and is quite firm at the op before t becomes the wobbly, pouchy michelin man mess. Literally pounds and pounds of doughy flesh Obviously, clothes never fit right and it's hard to find anything these days with a high enough waist to wear separates, maxi dresses- fine, but again, just look too 'maternity' on me.
Has anyone got or had the same and done anything positive about it? I literally can't feel any stomach muscles if I try and do sit ups for example...
Hi op, I have this problem also. I am over weight, and used to be pear shaped but since having children it has all gone round the middle. My stomach was rock hard until I gave up lactose and then I lost over a stone and it sort of dropped. Not a great look really! If I do any kind of sit up, even just lifting myself off the floor a tiny bit my tummy muscles go into a weird point, does anyone else have this?
Hi Angelcake, it sounds like you might have the diastasis (seperated stomach muscles) mentioned on the last page - check out the Tuplar technique. Seems like I need to give up bread and start pilates :-(
