So...I have a bit of a problem. I've lost all my baby weight (and a few extra pounds), but my stomach is still looking woefully post-baby. It's not that my tummy is all that big; it's just so mushy and wrinkly. My mom, my sister Stephanie, and I were discussing yesterday how sometimes we'll catch a glance of ourselves in the mirror while changing and just be shocked and appalled at what we see. I know that sounds a little harsh, but if your body has been ravaged by babies, I'm sure you'll understand. My skin isn't all that elastic (or so I've been told), and it's hasn't recovered much from pregnancy. I understand that I can't do much about the wrinkly skin...like a bad neighbor in an ugly house, that's here to stay. I would however like to do something about the mushy tummy muscles. I ignored the mush after I had Ezra because I planned on getting pregnant very soon and frankly, I just don't think it was this bad. The fact that it seems to be getting worse with each pregnancy gives me a sense of urgency in getting rid of it in the hopes that it won't be quite so bad next time. So I'm begging for your help! If you've been able to tone your stomach muscles at all post-baby, please tell me how. Things are getting a little desperate!
Yes...it really is that bad. If anything, the picture's a little flattering.
