Hey! I'm twenty-four. I have two kids. A 5 and 3 year old. They were both very large babies. I had gestational diabetes. Ended up gaining over 100lbs. Had them both by horizontal c-section. I was 272lbs the day I delivered my last baby. He came out and I was 250ish that and then gradually slimmed down to the 230's. Mind you my son is now three. My weight has fluctuated between the high 230's to the low 220's. The lie I told myself was "don't start worrying till he's three then you have no excuse ;)"
Totally ridiculous. Now, my last doctor's appointment had me at 230.6lbs. I'm 5'9". I saw those numbers and it was just time. That was a little over two weeks ago and that day on I've been in beast mode. It's coming off, I'm getting toned, I'm gonna be one of those mom's I envy and admire with their flat tummies and toned arms.
The point in all of that is I need to know how hard is it to achieve that? How long does it generally take? Are there products to help aide what I'm trying to achieve?
My gut is large, it sags, I have sagging skin where strong abdominals used to be, the bottom of my tummy is kinda shaped like a butt, the muffin top is there. I'm a tall thin gangly girl naturally but after the pregnancies I look like a pear with long stick legs.
With hard work and dedication can this snap back without having surgery?
