Belly

What is the fastest way to get rid of my extra skin on my belly? I just have a circle that doesn't seem to want to go away. This is the spot where my baby was and I looked like I had swallowed a basketball.

No idea, sorry. Hope you get good answers though. It's a very annoying problem!

Once your skin loses that elasticity, it's my understanding that it will not go "all the way down".  If it's still been recent since you've lost the weight, give it time, but the only way to get it to go away may be a surgical option.  Good luck!

This I believe is true.

Did you trying toning? It sounds stupid, but after I had my last kid I noticed the skin on my belly looked "loose". I started doing sit ups and noticed that as I toned up the skin looked better.

Haven't tried that. Will try. Do you know of a good way to do sit ups besides the old fashion way of laying on the ground. What about an exercise ball or something?
