Aim to exercise everyday, I do that and end up probably doing it 5 days a week. I have had to be really strict with my diet to lose my belly, because I had to wait to exercise due to my c-section, but I started exercising normally at probably 3 months. I am still working on it but I am almost back to normal and I would say just really watch what you eat- no bad food, only good fats (avocado, olive oil, nuts) and lots of cardio. Its not always fun but it works. Only cardio will get rid of the fat and sit ups will tone. P.S. I gained 50lbs during my pregnancy- alot for my frame- and have 10 to go so I hope this gives you some hope that you can lose it.

Hi Cassie! I know how you feel. My fifth child was born via c-sec. The good news is that it does go away. Honestly! My advise would be to make sure to eat well, don't get caught up in wanting size 0 jeans. Check out www.westonaprice.org for incredible nutrition information. Oh ya, the lovely bumpy, lumpyness you feel at your incision site? Well, it actually goes away too and you will be left with a very faint line. I wish someone would have told me that after my c-sec. I thought there was something wrong and that it would be like that forever! I think I waited 5/6 months before getting really serious about working out again. Don't worry, if you want your body back, you will get it.

Wear a girdle. Make sure it is a smaller size than what you normally wear. Wear it all day and night. Sleep with it and only take it off to shower then put it back on after. In a couple of weeks you should see a difference and by a month it should be gone.

I know it sounds funny, but yard work helped me get back in shape. All of the bending and pulling helps you to use your stomach muscles in a natural way to regrow the tissue that has been severed. If you are not active enough you could have a lot of scar tissue, but you don't want to go to the other extreme and over extend yourself either. Try mowing the lawn, pulling weeds twice a week, things like that. Also, I had a problem with sagginess in other areas, and I found that inclined push ups work wonders! I put my feet on my coffee table (not in front of the kids of course!) and my hands on the floor at shoulder width apart. At first I could only do about five, but now I do fifty a day and it really works. Hope it helps!
