I'm going to the dr for a few other things but I have a time slot for my weight.<br><br>
I'm going to talk about what I've been doing, the changes I've seen, the things that aren't changing, and how I feel about it all.<br><br>
I'm hoping she'll have some insight on a few things. My biggest thing is that the rest of my body is shrinking. I'm not losing weight but I am losing inches. But I have lost NOTHING from my stomach. I don't know what a "fat" stomach is supposed to look like or does look like. Mine has a "Crevice" down the center that is about 1/2 inch lower than the sides. Then there is a line that sinks lower that seperates it into a top and bottom. But the sides of my stomach is flat....kinda like this....<br><br>

Does that make sense?? If you look down from my point of view you can see it wave. I can feel my uscle underneath when I do crunches and everything but I'm still not seeing a difference. THis is in almost a year of trying to get it to go away.<br><br>
So, there ya go <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Do you do yoga or pilates? A fitness instructor told me that crunches really are a waste of time. You need to do something that will hold those muscles daily. In other words you need to do excersizes similar to your everyday movements in order to get tummy results. Pilates is an excellent way to do that. I have always had a tummy and after 3 pg thought it was a lost cause. I have been doing yoga, pilates and bosu for almost 3 weeks and have seen dramatic results. Dh says my tummy is going away.<br><br>
Good luck at the doctors.

I do yoga and a workout to develop "core muscles". I don't do crunches except to feel my muscle <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><br><br>
I actually ke p my abs tight through the day or else I look huge!<br><br>
It is jsut really weird. It looks like someone jsut stuck this mass of flesh on me. It doesn't match the rest of my outline....totally weird <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
