Getting my stomach back to shape after having a baby!!!!

My baby boy is now 19 months and I still have a problem with my stomach. It is big and just refuses to go down and the worst part is that right at the bottom of it (Stomach), it forms a mushroon shape. My friends say i should have used one of those slimming belts to help get my stomach back down, straight after I had the baby. Problem is I had my baby through C-Section (Featal distress), I tried those slimming belts but they were just to painful and I felt that it would hinder the healing process of my stitches. I desparately need help as I am on a diet right now and feel that there is movement in everything else except my belly. This really makes me feel unconfortable because before I had my baby I had a nice slim tummy. I can deal with everything else, the strech marks and having put on some weight, but I simply cannot handle a big tummy. Any advise on how I can lose stomach fat would be much appreciated. I know it might be a long journey, but it's one I'm prepared to take. I would prefer to do it the natural way and not surgically.

Do toning exercises and lose weight. Fat does not come off our bodies uniformly. When I lose weight, the first fat I lose is in my breasts (and they're tiny anyway), then I lose belly fat, then thigh fat. Your belly may never be as flat as it was before you got pregnant, the muscles were stretched and could prevent that. When I weighed 100 pounds and had 19% body fat, I still had a tiny tummy - it'll never be flat again but I look at my children and it was all worth it!
