  • breastfeed. I am now skinnier than before I had my three eight pound sons. and the weight's stayed off too. If you do an exercise i'd suggest swimming - it works your whole body but puts less strain on your joints, it works your abs a lot if you swim overhand laps, and just laying still floating, you have to tense your abs to keep your middle up from sinking. and yes, you can start breastfeeding up until they are six - eight months old. that's START. breastfeeding will suck alllll the fat right off a woman, in ways NO diet or pill evr could. I suspect some of what the obesity problem women have nowadays is due to them using formula after birthing instead of breastfeeding, breastfeeding is nature's way of helping to remove the baby weight. Not to mention, Breastfeeding makes your baby,like, ten times healthier throughout life than a formula fed baby. google breastfeeding or "le leche league" good luck!

  • Breastfeeding helps shrink your tummy. I lost 50 pounds 3 years ago by cutting back on my portions, drinking lots of water and exercising at Curves. I've kept it off too!! I wish I had discovered Curves right after I had my kids, I wish it didn't take me 3 years to do it!!

  • Breastfeeding definitely helps! I gained close to 70 lbs when I was pregnant, and it helped the weight melt off.

    I don't limit what I eat, in fact, I eat more b/c breastfeeding burns my calories up!

    Exercising will also help of course:) But definitely wait at least six weeks before going to a gym.
