Ladies that have had c-section have any progress pics?

Hi, I'm BreAnne and I've have 3 c-sections. I gained 110 pounds with my first son. I'm 5'0 and my weight was 180 when I started my journey to get healthy. Any of you ladies have any success pics of your belly? I worry that I'll always have this horrible flap of fat hanging under my stomach from my c-section, and would like to see yalls after photos. :)

    iv not got any pics, BUT I had my first c section in November 2015, after an awful recovery (thats still on going due to problems I had with the wound and scaring) I statred to count calories again in june this year. so farm Im down just over a stone and my "over hang" is alrady smaller.

    when I saw the doctor this month she said she could see a big differernce in it already and her plan to refere me to have the skin and my scar removed once in at goal weight might not be needed now if it continues to shrink like it already has been.

    but she did say that the scar from c section creates like a hinge which is why we get the over hang so even once i lost he weight there may still be a "slight" over hang just at the scar but it is possible for it to go in time

    No pics from me either, as I'm still in progress. After my third (no c-sections), I was at 180 as well and 5'0" so I'm interested in seeing similar progress pics. I've gotten to 162 counting calories loosely over the past 2 years but am really trying to tighten up on the counting and working out (loving lifting weights right now). I can tell you overhang is there on no c-section births as well

    I have no pics as well. But I will soon I've had two c sections and I have stretch marks every where. But so far my skin is snapping back. Just keep your tummy moisturized. Try out hot yoga classes I'm already seeing a difference.

    You've done so well. What kind of strength training are you doing?

    No pics but wanted to say I've had four c-sections. I too am working on that overhang! I'm down 11 pounds now and am starting to see it get smaller.

    I had 2 c-sections and 3 VABCS and I was able to get rid of the overhang with dieting, heavy lifting, and patience. I am going to have a c-section with this little one and will do the same thing.
