My stomach has been shrinking down, but it's starting to look like I had a vertical c section. Is it normal for the center of the bottom belly to start going in first? It looks funny, but much better then before.

    I have noticed that this happens with a lot of women, c-section or not. I didn't have a c-section and mine is a bit like that too.

    Where you lose fat from, as you lose weight, is genetics. I actually hold more fat on my lower stomach than upper. During weight loss, there was a point where it looked like I had a larger stomach because the rest of me had shrunk but my stomach had stayed almost the same.

    Yeah, it's fine. It can take awhile for the body to even out. I've had stages in my weight loss where I just look...odd. Now I stopped losing from my waist and my hips, and I lost more right around my hip bone which basically changed the shape of my entire body.

    Thanks sweeties. I was starting to think I'd need a tummy tuck. You all look great.

    That's really common, especially if you lose a lot of weight. Kate from Jon and Kate +8 called it her "butt in the front".
