  • I had my daughter by c-section almost 4 years ago and i have been struggling with my weight ever since, But i have found a Great product that is helping me lose that weight safely i have already lost 5.8lbs. It is amazing, it has no drugs or stimulants and best part is it has zero side effects PM if you would like to know more :)

  • With my first, I was back to pre-pregnancy size in 3 weeks - unfortunately, my second took me about a year - but I didn't start really doing anything until around 6 months after she was born.

  • My dd is 16 months and I still have about 1/2 the weight I gained during the pregancy still to lose. I definatly notice doing situps and even pushups kinda hurt my incision area and the exercises are harder than before.

  • I didn't need a c-section till my third and last child and that was almost two years ago.I still have some of the weight but it seems like no matter how hard I try can't seem to lose the rest.I do notice for me though that where the incision was it tends to hang over no matter what.I got a bad feeling no matter how much weight I lose that will always be there.

  • I had a C-section in June of 07, I started going to the gym in Aug of 07 and around Aug of 08 I started seeing a big diff in my body!! I have been told by my c-section doc that it would take 1 year to start seeing results and I am living proof of that. I have been going to the gym consistantly ( with some exceptions) since last year, taking Body Pump and RPM and other things ( busting butt) so, I stuck it out and have to say I am very happy with myself that I did and didn't give up because I wasn't seeing results right away!! So make your mind up to change your life for you!! Get your butt in gear and WORKOUT!! so you can be a Hot mom!!
