Gettin a flat stomach
Posted: Sep 9, 2008 6:57 PM

Ok Ladies I have that after birth pooch as they may say. How in the world do you get it to vanish quickly. Obviously just sit-ups don't cut it.

Any advice?

I suggest Pilates. I haven't had children so obviously I can't say it definitely works, but I have had friends that swear by it. I did it for a while and saw results, but I prefer more intense workouts.

I have been doing Zumba at my local gym and absolutely love it.  It's an aerobic dance class to latin music.  We learn the samba, mamba,  salsa, etc. and even do some belly dancing.  As a result, I've lost weight everywhere, not just in one particular area. 

There's a girl in class that did it up until 3 weeks before she had her baby and now she started coming again to lose her baby weight and has already trimmed down.

I think you can look up local zumba classes on their website. Even if you've never taken dance classes before (I hadn't), you'll still be able to learn the steps and it's so much fun.

Oh man I forgot about Zumba!!! I was taking the zumba class at my old 24 hour fitness! It was awesome. You burn a ton of calories. But the 24 hour fitnesses in my new town don't offer Zumba. But it was so much fun! And I am not a very coordinated dancer!

the only way to get a flat stomach (if you are taking about nice abs) is to do lots of cardio and some weight training. The "pouch" is fat and the ab muscles are under that layer of fat. I had the same problem and after 6 weeks of alternating between light weights and cardio i Lost 10 lbs which makes a huge difference in the ab area.

If you want anymore tips let me know! It really takes hard work and determination...I got started by hiring a personal trainer just to show me how to do things right.

There is a great dowload at the excercise tv store (just search that in yahoo) and for less than $13 they have a set of pretty awesome bridal body workouts called the Bridal Slim Down Fitness System. My favorite is Bridal Absession. I did it for a while and then of course life happens but I started again today and this time I'm sticking to it!

Also, before today I hadn't done it but I used an old stationary bike we have and immediately after I finished one of the weight loss programs on the bike and I felt it in my butt, legs and abs.

Hope that's some help!!

carido is the key, all the pilates and crunches will only tone, you need cardio to melt the fat away.

running is my favorite easy fix, but there are alot of great boot camp work out dvds out there.

Not sure if you've ever heard of the ItWorks! ultimate body applicator but it tones, tightens, and firms your troubled areas in as little as 45 minutes! I am a distributor for itworks but i have also used the product myself and let me tell you it does work! I lost 9 inches in my tummy with just 2 wraps. You can go to my site and sign up as a loyal customer, get 4 wraps for $59 (retail $99) and tighten up that baby pouch in no time! This is definitely not a scam! You can email me at mommy0621@yahoo.com for more information or go to http://michellebrandel.myitworks.com

Hope to hear from you soon :)

for me its Pilates that works, especially in my abdomen. This also aids in posture and keeps the hips and spine supple.
