  • dont do a focused workout bc all you will be doing is toning your muscles underneath without losing very much weight. cardio workouts are the a best for losing weight. iv lost 10 lbs in 2 months just with jumping jacks. 180 minutes a week is whats recommended with the average diet. (im not saying to go on a diet so dont get me wrong) if you can excersis off more calories then you eat you will also see faster results. lso if you have stretch marks be sure not to mistake skin sag for fat. it will jiggle and look like fat but really just needs time and help the shrink

  • I lost about 45lbs a year ago and YES trust me the belly is the last to go, but eventually it does. Just keep up with the ab workout and remember you need to change it up every few days because our muscles have memory, and if you just do the same thing day in and day out it will take much, much longer
