My tummy has always looked like I am about 4 months pregnant. Even before I had children. 2 babies later - you can imagin it is worse!
Will excerise and toning be able to change this? I have lost 1 stone with slimming world since having DD2 (who is now 12 weeks) and I am now in the "ideal" weight range. I would still like to loose a bit more but from the right places!
I am going to tennerife in September with a big group of people (who all have flat tummys!) and would love to feel comfortable with myself for once, especially after I have lost weight anyway.
I have a wii fit etc if there is a good excercise I can do on there?
I can't do sit ups! I have no idea why, but I have never been able to do them!
Really? Interesting! Was it weight loss in general that made your stomach flat or just the wheat? I am loosing weight quite easily, but just in the wrong places (my face is starting to look odd as I have lost lots of weight there which is not where I want to loose it!) I have lost between 3-6lb a week ish so actual weight loose isn't a problem, just the area.
Isn't wheat in almost everything? (I don't have much will power when it comes to food )
I have a big tummy too, and I have been doing crunches daily - sounds horrific but it really isnt!! I do 20 normal ones, and twenty each side (with legs bend and to the side) - I do it once a day sometimes twice. My personal trainer friend also gave me a 15 minute pilates routine to do which focuses on bum and tummy - I do this two or 3 times a week instead of or as well as the crunches, when I have time. I also gave up drinking in the week (I used to have a glass of wine or beer every evening...).
All this has really helped - ive been swimming and cycling a lot too, but I think the above has been the thing that has really helped my tummy...hth!
I would expect that the reason you find sit-ups hard is because you are lacking in tone in that area, the only thing that will impove it is to practice and daily!
I have a terrible stomach after two kids, but if I exercise daily it does improve, I can highly recomend this DVD, all focused on the tummy but loads of different mini workouts, so not just slogging away at the crunches.
