I am on a diet and have lost 1.5 stone but have a way to go. I am desperate about the state of my stomach, any tips for getting it to go down at least enough for people not to think I'm up the duff ? I am giving up booze again from today (drank at the weekend but am doing no booze in the week atm) and will be drinking lots of water and trying no bread this week. Any other tips? Can't face sit ups. TIA, any suggestions appreciated.
oh wwww, well done, i was reading about an abdominal exercise u can do whilst cooking or cleaning, whereever, for this reason, but i cant remeber it exactly will try to find it , may take theday, as i thought yeh i could hack that if it got rid of some jelly
I certainly dont have a flat stomach and my eldest often asks are we getting another baby and when I ask why he says because I have a big tummy. I generally tell him if im having one then daddy must be having twins. LOL
My stomach has never been the same since having kids.
The only way I know how to get a flat stomach is stomach crunches and its been a while since attempted.
think it is very hard to spot reduce but I have found that giving up alll whaet really works and have to say that running is good .... pilates is excellent for working the muscles but no good if there is a layer of fat over them... recommend god posture and magic knickers... all worked for me!!
I had a friend who was a sports therapist and he once told me that the only excersie you can do to get rid of a flabby tummy is running or aerobic exercise. Exercising the muscles doesn't help because the fat deposit lay over the muscles therefore are not affected by abdominal excersice unless of course you are really burning a lot of calories with that excersise. On a personal note, I'm exercising acceptance
Thanks for all these suggestions. Gosh, it seems I need to lose weight AND do sit ups, yuk. You know what, I wore magic knicks out on Sat and about 9pm snuck to the loo and took them off, I couldn't bear the discomfort! So actually, I think I'll cover up until I've lost more weight, it's got to go from round there surely.
It is worth doing sit ups though because they help your posture and to hold your stomach in and when you do lose the weight the benefits will show. I would really recommend getting a video such as "I want those Abs" (I know it's American ) and just doing the 15min of that once or twice a week. You don't have to do as much as you think to show a difference.
only kiddin, have same prob myself www and i often think it'd be the easiest solution to have tummy tuck, but alas i cant afford one and even if i cud, im a wuss and wud never be brave enough for it..
Excercise is the key to toning up everywhere but do something you enjoy or you'll never stick to it.. Apparently the tummy is the last place to show any loss weight wise.. and im told by all those who know, it will come off eventually
as regards the majic knickers, im with ya on that one..
good luck with it anyway
