I've got to slim my midsection!

Okay, I've been doing various types of abdominal and back work outs to try to shrink the leftover baby pooch. Do you think that this will be enough to lose the fat?

I really don't have time to do aerobic workouts...I have a treadmill, but it's pretty loud and I live on the 2nd floor...I don't want to be rude, plus with the baby it's hard to be away for 30 minutes...if you have kids, you know what i mean

I'm happy that I lost all the weight I'm just not happy with my tummy. The only reason I really want to lose some weight is so my jeans will fit better. I have to get jeans really small to fit my hips/butt but they fit super tight in the waist and I end up with a muffin if I don't do some waist stretching before I wear them....

I know I shouldn't be bitching b/c I am a small size, but even small people have body issues

cardio + reduced caloric intake = reduction of fat. The sit ups and all that wont do you any good without the cardio and diet. Trust me, I've tried, all that happened was they were harder underneath my fluff.

tiff, you should take some sewing lessons, and learn to tailor on your own, it would help you a ton I think.

Agree. You gotta have some cardio to burn the fat. I never lost that little bump after my first and I lost all the baby weight plus some. It just never went away. Now, after number 2, I have a muffin top that could feed the entire US military.

I am going to do something about it after 1/1/07!

I really recommend a pilates core workout for the midsection. It is amazing! I really works those midsection muscles and the more you work those muscles the more extra in that area will burn away. This worked wonders after I had my daughter and it even worked on hubbies love handles!

I agree with what a few others have mentioned. What you are doing is good, but you're building muscle, not burning fat. You have to add some cardio in to burn the fat.

pilates is awesome. I went religiously for a few months (unfortunately, I severly started lacking in time) and I noticed my stomach getting so much prettier. It's not quite so nice anymore, though. I'm looking forward to being able to hit the gym again! End of semester killed me, though.

You could also check out this video, called 'Basic Ab Exercises for Dummies' or something like that, by fitness trainer Gay Gasper. It's available on Amazon - i do the workout once a week and i've maintained my abs ever since

I think Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas mentioned she uses that vid too, might be worth a shot.

Do Tae Bo...great workout and you can get out all your frustrations while you're at it. It feels weird doing it at first but after you get on a roll it's quite fun.

abs are made in the kitchen. don't do anything stupid like cut down your calorie intake to unhealthy low levels. keep it around 1500-2000 if you can, but eat healthy. consume plenty of protein, not too much carbs, eat only good fats. if you're patient, you can keep track of how much you're eating at FitDay - Free Weight Loss and Diet Journal.

Char, I wanted to add, there are a few weight type exercise that get your heart rate up in the range, squat thrusts are good if you really put work into them, and are not noisy at all, then if you go on with your normal sit up sand such, you should be find.

Studies also show that you get about the same benifits from 3 10 minute sessions of having you heart in the target range as you do from 1 30 minute session, so that's also something to consider.

ever consider running the stairs up and down? good cardio if you don't belong to the gym...granted your neighbors might think you're nuts

but the key to midsection fat loss is CARDIO! i'm a personal trainer and a nursing student, and i have 2 kids (3yr and 10mo)...i KNOW what you are dealing with. still trying to get rid of the excess belly hip and back-hip cushion that likes to grow when you're pregnant. i do the step mill (like walking/running stairs) 45min 3x week PLUS I teach at least 1 cycle class a day at the local gym here. 10mo later I STILL have 13lbs to loose before getting back to my pre-preg weight. but i am still bfeeding so that will also keep a good 10lbs on you for those "emergency starvation days"...like that happens anymore! can't our bodies realize that we just don't starve here like we used to?

After having a baby what is a realistic time frame to get back to pre-preg. size? I just had my second 4 months ago and still have about 5 lbs. left, however, my body is definetely different and my abs (or lack there of) are not pretty! I am still breastfeeding but am thinking the second time around I will need to check out the video mentioned or pilates. Anyone have a good pilates video to recommend (a short one, the kids always need me). THANKS!
