have had 2 sections and the best thing I have found is the classic give up bread stops the bloat and makes a real difference.. then try pilates... but if there is a lot of fat down there, you really need to diet as exercise will just tone up the muscles that are encased in a thick layer of fat!!

Are you pulling in your tummy muscles right now ? Sit up straight and see if you can feel them. Pull in your pevic floor muscle too. HOLD......count to 10....

Now breath out and repeat everytime you post!

See the Tue 13-Mar-07 16:11:49 post on the exercise buddy thread . This gives you the definitive guide to flat, strong abs. You have to start by strengthening your core muscles. Doing crunches only strengthens the surface muscles that gives you the six pack. In addition, you have to lose the fat around your midriff in order to see the results of your hard work. The only way to do that is to diet and undertake cardiovascular exercise that will elevate your heart rate for at least 20 minutes in order to burn fat.

Whatever you do you've got to burn the fat, otherwise you'll have a fabulous six pack under a layer of lard. I also believe that a certain amount of damage can be caused with pregnancy to skin and tissue that in some cases a flat stomach may never be achievable without surgery again, at least that's my excuse!
