Tips on getting rid of extra baby weight?

I have an almost-two-year-old. I had to have an emergency C-Section when he was born. Since he was born, I gave my body a couple of months to heal then started working out. I have lost a lot of baby weight, to the point I am very comfortable in my body and love my progress. My question is, once you get to that point and what you’re left with is just flab hanging, how do you get rid of it? I have done sit-ups, crunches, and other workouts of this type, it has helped most my belly but that stubborn flab that hangs over where I had a C-Section. What else can I do? Will it ever go away?

Surgery is the only way. There’s no way to tighten skin that’s lost it’s elasticity.

alot of people are paying for the surgery it’s like the only way

Plastic surgery, your stomach muscles become distended so while you may lose the weight you wont lose the belly

The zip up body shaper from amazon has became my best friend :sob:

I want to say look into collagen supplements. It helps with elasticity. Do some research on it. Talk to your DR.

I have had 3 c-sections and unfortunately there is no way to be rid of the flab. I have tried everything including wrapping my belly

After a c-section you should have gotten a laxative or suppository to release the gas and as soon as able to do stairs do them as often as possible and walk often too. If you don’t do that as soon as possible after c-section it is hard to get rid of.

Try an antidepressant, Prozac is good for hormonal weight gain that you can’t lose.

Welcome to the mom shelf. We all have one. You can get a skin tightener but it wont help much. Sorry mommy! And congrats on the weight loss and semi new baby :slight_smile:

Spanx work wonders. I have one that covers my stomach and thighs and I love it.

With a c section
Sit ups and crunches have been known to make rebuilding your core more difficult because it separates the muscles more

I’ve started Noom
It’s helped a ton
I’m not actually dieting and my workouts are helpful and healthy

My mom had 3 kids and a c-section with me and she doesn’t have the extra skin, she actually went back to what she weighed before kids and the same body. No special diet, didn’t work out…just happened as soon as she had me.

You gotta embrace what you got beautiful. Mader… (From the movie) without said weight you would have no baby!! Be confident, happy and realize your baby could care less what your weight is… Cares id mommy is happy! Rock that shit!

Some of these comments are just fuckin gross.
