  • I don't know that you can...other than maybe in time it will readjust itself? That might be a good question for your doctor. :)

  • The loose, stretched out skin will not be "put back" no matter how much weight you lose. You can trim your waistline, lose the fat, & firm up the muscles underneath (and that WILL help your appearance) , but if it's the actual stretched out skin causing the pouch, nothing short of surgery will take care of that. I am in the same boat. I had my last baby 7 years ago and am now at a nearly ideal body weight for me. I even have a little bit of the 6-pack ab thing going on...but I still have some loose skin. You can either learn to live with it or check into having abdominoplasty (tuck). Sorry, I know it sucks, I hate mine too.
