how do you get rid of a "fupa" without surgery?

that area of your lower stomach that just sags if stretched to much after having a baby,mine is rediculous! how can I make it look relatively normal again without splurging on a tummy ruck?

It takes time and work, I used a weighted hula hoop. your skin is elastic but you gotta get the blood flowing to that area. Crunches didnt work great for me, i never felt it working. A hula hoop worked awesome and going from 105 to 168, and having 2 c-sections I look hot in my bikini.

I have had 4 c sections 3 years apart my last pregnancy I was diagnosed with cancer and had to do chemo therapy, I lost lots of weight and after delivering my baby I weighed 117 and I am sure it was due to the illness and chemo. It has been 16 years ago and the older you get the more droop you get its a how you eat and exercise to an extent and the other part is how big you got during your pregnancy; your skin stretches and later fills up with fat cells fatty tissue scar tissue you cant build tissue only muscle which most people know that in a csection they cut through layers of skin tissue and muscle to get to your uterus; honestly I think there is nothing you can do to bulid that up again; I have tried and tried I always still have a fuba...and being that I had 3 bikini cuts and then one cut down the middle of my stomach for that last delivery I cant get any strength back in my tummy. I hate it as well its embarrassing with your clothes off,but I guess I should be happy I am here; I beat Cancer =)

i bought a wii fit. its helped a bit, but some of it is in the genes i think. if your mom had a pooch after the kids, most likely you will too.

Sit ups!! I gained 50 pounds durring my pregnancy and I looked gross afterwards!! I started doing sit ups right away!! I do regular situps or crunches and then I drop my legs to either side and to side crunches. Also, I do lunges and push ups, walking will help too.
