I have been cruising around for a couple of months on this forum, just checking out how everyone else is going and I have to say it is so very inspiring!
I am a Mum of two boys aged 2 and 4 and my body is just not co-operating with me. I put on 32kg with my first pregnancy and almost 20kg with the second one. After two c sections I have accumulated what looks like a pouch that hangs over where the scar is. (Its probably really common) This has affectionately become known as pouchy. Pouchy has a mind of its own, it jiggles about when I walk and it keeps moving long after I have stopped giggling.
It has made me very self conscious.
I have managed to lose pretty much all of the weight I put on whilst pregnant and am now hovering about 6kg off my goal weight which is 64kg. I realise I am not too much overweight but on my 162cm frame the 70kg does look a bit bulky.
So I just wanted to see if there were any more "pouchy's" out there and see how other people are going about reducing them. I fit in an hour of high energy aerobics 5-6 mornings a week and do some free weights on my arms and one of those thigh toner contraptions during the tv ad breaks in the evenings. I am not a fan of situps etc so have been avoiding them in the hope that the cardio will help reduce the pouch but it just doesnt want to shift. AAARRRGGHHH !!!
I also drink just over 2 litres of water a day and only one coffee in the morning, no alcohol and a fairly strict low fat diet with heaps of vegies. I admit that the diet is realxed most weekends so that may be seriously sabotaging my efforts
It would be great to hear from some others who have been or are currently in the same situation!
