cg, it only. i have excessivly large norks. yes, i think i need to concentrate on situps now. . i just hate doing them. which is probably why belly is in such a state to begin with. three kids and bad genetics notwithstanding.
my belly is definitly the last place to lose my baby weight this time round i do some cardio work to shift the fat as even if you have really toned muscles having a layer of fat over them will make them look as though they are not. sit ups are good and so is any excercise you do standing up! running, step machines etc. kinesis classes are good and i find my stomach muscles ache after ive been doing weights as well. good luck
no, i think i need to do some serious bra shopping again. last lot were bought 18 months ago, and no longer fab. i love doing general excercise, rather than situps, but perhaps i do need to concentrate on doing more situps than i normally do during my workout? what about clothes though? from the shoulders i have dropped a dress size already, but the belly is stubbornly still up there. and gettng more jelly like everyday.
I find v-necked tops help a bit as they divert the eye from the norks. Some sorts of material divert attention from the belly. I find high waisted jeans are good for holding the stomach in and flattening it a bit. I've started running a few times a week which has toned my legs up but the stomach is still as pregnant as ever[sigh]
