Ok, I am in limbo here and feeling very distressed about it now, I can not get rid of these last few kilo's that's hangin' around my guts!! :shock:
I have not eaten any chocolate since my last fix, the day the lammie died...I am doing a new set of tummy tucker exercises....and still not able to shift even a 100 grams!!
We are renovating the kitchen (yucky job) I have been using sanders and grinders and doing a considerable amount of physical work and not a gram nothing, zero, zilch has come off my guts!! Whinge, whinge, whinge,
:) I feel better now, thanks for letting me vent...

Hi Maria,

I am finding i have the same problem. I wanted to lose weight so i wouldnt have a bulge on my tummy when i sit down but it is still there.
What are 'tummy tucker exercises'?
I bought an Abswing and i got some jelly belly exercises from the internet (think it was cleo or cosmo online magazine) that i am just starting to do. Will let you know if i hear anything else or find something that works.
Remember you may be gaining muscle that is why the scales arent moving...

* Get regular, general exercise. Burning calories reduces overall body fat. (But just doing sit-ups won't flatten the bulge.)

* Target lower and deeper abdominal muscles. Exercises that target these muscle groups can help. An example is a pelvic tilt. Lie on your back on the floor with knees bent. Flatten your back against the floor by tightening your abdomen and bending your pelvis up. Hold for five to 10 seconds. Work up to 10 to 20 repetitions.

* Stand tall. A slouched position makes your tummy more prominent.

Beware of bloating. Some foods -- beans, cabbage and bran, for example -- can cause bloating and accentuate your bulge.

The tummy tucker exercises I am doing are:
Like a reverse wood chop using the multi-gym
Squats wuth weights
Sit-ups using the gym ball and passing ball from legs to hands and vice versa
Push ups using Gym ball (very dangerous activity, I often fall off the ball LOL)
Step squats using the gym ball.
I do at least an hour oer day of the above mentioned.
I should be like a rake LOL

How frustrating! I can only say, hang in there, it's gotta be worth it.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Hi Maria

I think you should concentrate on doing exersises to specifically target your tummy area.Good luck with it.I am sure you will get there.

Hi Maria,

With all the exercising you are doing, and being so close to your goal you think that perhaps your weight isn't "budging" cause you are building muscle which will all know weighs more??

Maybe you should measure yourself rather than go by the scales??
Are your clothes looser?

I have the tummy "flab" too and it is for me the hardest thing to shift.

Good luck!
