    My stomach was so bad that when I started working out, doing pushups disgusted me!! My stomach just hung there no matter how hard I tried to tighten it up. I would also sit on the couch with my husband and it would just flop over lol. I had a lot of lose skin. I read to drink a lot of water and exfoliate in the shower to remove dead skin cells and to get the circulation moving. It took a lot of patience and several months, but it got better. This picture is a 9 month process...

    OMG!! Do you have stretch marks at all? I dont see them. Yes, my belly does the same thing. How did you begin your journey? And how often do you excercise?

    That is my main construction site too, my belly. Twins and a c-section, another "normal"weight child and a 5kg child left me with stretch marks, hanging skin and no real bellybutton. Argh!

    Great to see your pictures, there is hope!

    My belly doesn´t look as as bad as it used to but it is still a long way.

    My stretch marks are there!! Trust me!! I never had them until my third!! I started with P90X last year and have stuck with the programs as best as I can. Nutrition has been the main key for the weight loss. A lot of protein and less carbs is what has been working. I exercise 5-6 times a week (weekends are hard because I hate working out when my husband is home; Sadly, I get embarrassed haha)

    The only thing I have noticed is that my stretch marks have faded some but I still have the tummy issue. I am hoping when I jump start my weight loss; I can get my stomach a little flatter. Can't wait, if i get to that point I will post a picture! :)

    For me,I want my belly to be round and that kind of fills up the belly skin and makes the stretch marks less noticeable. I did find a home remedy for stretch marks on Pinterest. I have not tried it yet.
    I try to think of my stretch marks as battle scars! lol
