nobodymove - What exercises do you do for your diastasis? I had a decent-sized diastasis after having DS, which I didn't really realize until about a year postpartum. I started working on my transverse abs, but then between a miscarriage and pregnancy, they've really gone to hell. My abs haven't seen each other for over a year now... I've been in a support binder since my c-section, but I'm looking for exercises to start to gently strengthen my abs.
milk8shake - DH's aunt and uncle lost a ton of weight by walking, too... How far do you usually go? What kind of pace? I can't manage much more than a slow mile right now, but I seem to be improving quickly (except for the past few days, since I'm exhausted from "vacation" ).
AFM - The scale this morning said 171!! I'm trying not to get too excited, since I fluctuate from day to day. I'm making an effort to eat more, which I'm hoping will help. It seemed like I was always hungry through the last few weeks of my pregnancy, and I'm just tired of eating... I don't want my body to go into starvation mode and hang onto the extra weight. I also picked up some Bolthouse Farms protein smoothies, so I can get some nutrition even when I don't have time/opportunity to actually eat. I really hope I can get back into the swing of cooking soon. These past few weeks have been barely-controlled chaos.
