  • I hate to tell you, but when you have that much loose skin your only option is probably a tummy tuck. Why not have a word with your doctor?

  • IT sucks I totally understand. I have the same problem and besides my c-section. I've had 3 surgeries on top of it. It's not easy but unless you get a tummy tuck that will stay. IT's not easy to accept that but you can try and work off some it but even then that's a challenge I've been trying for so many years!
    good luck!

  • My belly isn't all that great to look at, either, even though I've lost thirty pounds since I had my C-section. I think sooner or later it's about accepting your body and realizing that you are so much more than what you look like. Hang in there, Mom.
