It's hard isn't it!! I had my 2 children 10 months apart so I didn't give myself much of a chance to get rid of it. My youngest is now 12 months old and I still look 4 months pregnant (not exaggerating). I also work our nearly everyday, I walk with a double pram lugging 30kgs of children over hills etc and I still can't seem to lose it. My tummy is sort of hard though, not flabby but I still look fat. I think the best way to lose it is to just do cardio as much as you can and sweat as much as you can, while cutting down on fatty food and sugars.
My hubby is a personal trainer and the tips he has given me are:
* no sugar (or cut down)
* more protein
* heaps of cardio, you need to really sweat
* good eating habits (eg use avo instead of butter etc...)

Hey. I also have two boys, ages 2 and 4. I am small (5' 3" and 114 lbs) After having kids, my skin was very lax and I got a ton of BAD stretch marks. A friend of mine introduced me to some products. I thought, "this wont work." But I had a party for her, and the results were amazing. People have told me that I will need a tummy tuck but I don't want to spend that kind of money or undergo all the side effects. I was so amazed by the body slimming applicator that I decided to sell them. They're cheap for what you get. I use them about once every week or two and they work wonders...have helped my stretch marks a lot and tightened my skin a lot. Feel free to visit my website and purchase there. If you have any questions, feel free to call or e-mail me. The website is www.itworks.net/bscott. I would appreciate your business and I know you'll appreciate the results. We have stretch mark cream and defining gel as well. So check it out. Also, people will tell you every day not to tan your skin...but i've found that it helps some with camoflauging the imperfections. Plus your skin needs vitamin D which primarily comes from the sun during peak hours. :) Hope this helps. And be proud of your youngins!

Girl I have the same thing! It drives me nuts.. try circuit training and adding a little more cardio.. See if you can find a personal trainer for a decent rate to just get some tips and a work out or 2 in with one to help you really target what you want.
