I'm a mommy of two - 2 yrs and 6 yrs. I'm 5'5" and 120 lbs. I started running s year ago, and have been doing many intense fitness classss for longer then that. My main focus is my core and I've gotten pretty tone and strong. Thing is, my tummy still looks like it went through the meat grinder! Lots of extra skin and many stretch marks. The running has tightened it up but, with two kids, I can't run as often as I'd like. I think focusing on health, fitness, and feeling good has helped me accept that my stomach may not be without flaws for a while. Everyone has different elasticity so you could have great results! A friend of mine with three kids - oldest in college, youngest is like 8 - she runs twice a day and coaches cross country - she has a flat tummy with sexy definition, and very very faint stretch marks! It's possible to make changes, it just takes effort and commitment!
