Right, it is so flabby and vile that something has to be done. Feeling well enough to start doing situps etc now.

Who wants to join me?

And who knows some good pilates style exercises that I can do?

oh come on you lot, there must be someone else out there who needs toning up! I can't do it on my own FFS!

Maybe we should reinstate the 30/40/50 situps a day club. Coddy could get her flab fighting whip out to beat us all into submission

yep i will

CountessDracula Mon 19-Apr-04 16:57:28

Hurrah! Will go with your detox.

Watch out you may turn into Madge

I've got 5 weeks before I go on holiday. If I start doing situps today how much 'wobble' can I lose? Its all that horrible apres baby jelly belly I'm afraid.

CountessDracula Mon 19-Apr-04 17:03:31

Lydia if you are good and do them every day you will be in much much better beach shape I promise!

Tex111 Mon 19-Apr-04 17:14:38

Yes! Count me in. Tried on bathing suits yesterday and ended up buying a one piece for the first time in my life. Still too much wobbly baby belly. Will the exercise help tighten up the loose skin too or is that a gift for life?

I'd like to join in - can I do sit ups with my new prolapse, does anyone know? Don't want to find my cervix at my knees!

CountessDracula Mon 19-Apr-04 17:18:33

Lisa I don't know about that, I would check with your doctor or midwife first though.

lydialemon Mon 19-Apr-04 17:28:44

How many are we going to do a day? I'm going to have to do mine whilst DS2 is in Nursery, otherwise I'll end up with him sitting on me (and they'll laugh)

CountessDracula Mon 19-Apr-04 17:34:12

well I think we should start with 40 and work up from there. Is that too many for anyone? Obv you are welcome to do more if you like but you must do 40 a day even if you don't feel like it.

Tex111 Mon 19-Apr-04 17:37:54

That sounds great. Any particular style that you recommend - sit-up, crunch, etc? It's been a looong time for me.

CountessDracula Mon 19-Apr-04 17:39:39

Entirely up to you. Do them in a slow and controlled way, none of the squaddie style super fast ones!!

Browbeaten Mon 19-Apr-04 17:59:11

May I join in too as way too much overhang at the moment.

Spod Mon 19-Apr-04 18:02:31

count me in! dd 6 months now and i wanna lose the flabby bits.... know pilates exercises too... when i get more time i shall post instructions if you want CD?

Blu Mon 19-Apr-04 18:02:44

CD, PLEASE declare war on mine too, I'm going on holiday in 3 weeks and shall have to wear a beach hut at all times unless something radical happens....

CountessDracula Mon 19-Apr-04 18:03:40

I am the Hitler of flab

Spod Mon 19-Apr-04 18:06:04

do we have to report how many sits ups we're doing to you ?

gemilou Mon 19-Apr-04 18:06:19

Can I join in, started diet today so it would be a good time to start sit ups to

kiwisbird Mon 19-Apr-04 18:16:20

I'm there, otherwise in great nick, belly just keeps expanding I HATE it, I'm not technically overweight but should be, I eat far too much rubbish and drink far too much alcohol and do no exercise...

sarochka Mon 19-Apr-04 18:21:06

I'd like to join in too - belly needs a warning on it at the moment. Very depressing. Maybe this'll help get it back into some sort of shape!

champs Mon 19-Apr-04 19:52:39

I'd like to join in too. my belly has waged war on me, my thighs and arms have joined forces and my waist is MIA to top all that my willpower has gone AWOL!!!
can i do my 40 spread out in the day? am very unfit.

suzywong Mon 19-Apr-04 19:54:49

I barely feel up to sitting up at all.
It's been a full on day and the most static time I have had is four minutes.
Hey ho musn't grumble, I'm with you in spirit and will start tomorrow
