New mom needing motivation

Hello y’all!
I am 5 months postpartum and I am ready to work on abdomen! :( I was overweight before I had a baby and now I’m in 200s. Is there any new moms out there who have had any luck tightening their stomach area post baby with any YouTube videos? Trying to eat a 1200 cal diet with incorporating some kind of 30 min workout 5/7 days out of the week! Any advice is appreciated! :)

    Im not where I want to be, but look up Emily Skye on Instagram (not sure if she is on youtube). She is a new mom and she shows real un-photoshopped pics of her progress and shares exercise routines.

    you can not spot reduce. Eat in a deficit and the fat will come off where it wants to come off.

    it usually comes off where we WANT it to.... last.

    If you are eating only 1200 calories, I urge you to eat back your exercise calories.

    also, if you are breastfeeding, you need to eat more as well.
