Still Trying...

Kimberly - posted on 07/05/2010 ( 3 moms have responded )




About two months ago, I joined a gym and got a personal trainer. While I have a great deal more energy and feel a lot better, I'm not seeing the results I was hoping for. During my training sessions, which are an hour, at least twice a week, we work with weights for arms, legs and back, as well as about a half hour of cardio.

In addition to the training sessions, I've also made it a habit to go to pilates and yoga at least twice a week. My diet has been decent since I first learned I was pregnant, cutting out fast food and soda nearly entirely. I'm not a coffee drinker, or a smoker.

I'm wondering what I can do to work off this stomach of mine...As it's the only part of my body that I'm truly unhappy with....

I agree with Linda a healthy cleanse could seriously help you out and assist in your problem, However if you are very much in need for midsection, Then a lot of walking and core exercises is especially is good for your mid section. Pilates and yoga have moves that target those areas, do it 5-10 min a day get the results! Are you on multivitamins? eat wheat instead of the sugar carbs. white breads are pure sugar! and likes the belly section. Get a firming cream to rub on your tummy every night and morning cocoa butter lotion by palmers I found to be the best. It's very good with stretch marks too. Good luck!

Hi Kimberly,
It's been about 9 months since you posted you still need help? If you do, have you ever tried a Nutritional Cleanse? They really help me. I have a good one I use, plus I can send you a list of tips if you'd like. (And if you've already reached your goal....Way to go!)
Have a fabulous day!

Hi there,

Sorry for the delay in responding...summer's are always so busy. Anyways, since you are exercising regularly, I would say to TRACK YOUR DIET. Sounds like you got the fitness aspect down, but you haven't fully dialed in on your diet. As much as you "think" your eating healthy, you may have too much bread or carby stuff in your diet, not enough protein or too little calories. My advise would be to track your daily intake for a week, then if you like we can go over what you are comsuming and see if that is the problem or what you can do.

Take care and keep me updated.
