How can you burn belly fat?

I have a three year old and I just had my daughter 4 months ago and I have belly fat. Before I got pregnant the first time I weighed 108lbs. Once I got pregnant 3 years later I weighed 167lbs. After I had my daughter, I started to breastfeed and I lost 20lbs. Now I weigh 147lbs and i'm 5'1. My doctor told me that I had to lose between 10 to 15 lbs. 10 to 15lbs? That seem a little too much for me. I want to diet and exercise but its hard when you have a infant and a toddler and being a stay at home mom. Could anyone give me any advice on how to starting dieting and exercising? Thanks

  • You could wear one of those weight loss neoprene belts that they sell at walmart or any sporting good store. Basically u just wear it and u sweat ur belly area. You can also use exercise cords or pilates bands for exercise. If you keep up with them they make u stronger and all I do is three reps of 15 for a few diff exercises which takes minutes. I would take it easy on any difficult exercise plans because ur body is usually better six months after you deliver. But the stuff I mentioned is not expensive and doesn't take much time. If you can, it'd prob be a little break just to go to the gym for an hour a few times a week.

  • eat healthier food, cut down on the calories, you can do "mommy and me" exercises, take a walk, do crunches or a workout video during naptime

  • how much time do you have to fit in a workout? I agree that workout videos are a great option when you have young kids. I have a friend who has young kids and she really like Turbo Jam. Make sure you are eating enough calories, especially if you are still nursing!

  • maybe get a double stroller and go walking, walk like you are late for an appointment. Walking is great exercise, easy on the knees and you can do it with the kids. hope all goes well.

  • i like to take long brisk walks early in the morning
    something refreshing about it
    i hate crunches, but they work if you do them just 2 minutes a day
    thats not too much to ask right?
