ahh so discouraging, my belly is a totally different one. Im 7 weeks PP and i still look like im 20 weeks pregnant. My belly is sagging a bit and is just a huge chunk of fat. Before i got pregnant I had abs, and worked on my physique for a while, now its just a huge chunk of fat.



Does the sagging ever go away or is this something only plastic surgery will fix? I know when u lose weight rapidly the skin becomes kinda loose this sucks. even the shape is different and everything ewww. i look like a fat man. Totally ruined my self esteem so much, and considering im a single mom this is no good, i feel like im practically doomed a single mom for life. No one wants a fat mess.

Welcome to my world. My belly is a sagging, wrinkly mess.



And it only looks worse the more weight I lose:?

be patient!! You're only 7 weeks PP, it takes a hell of a lot longer than that to go back to normal honey lol. If you're seven weeks (if the doc said it was okay) then you should be able to start working out if you want, it'll help tone your belly faster and it is possible to get rid of that pudge without plastic surgery! You just have to be patient and work hard...and be proud of what your body gave you, it worked hard :)

cheer up mama...you are only 7 weeks PP...it took 9 months to put it on, it will take a while to get it off.



Try one of those postpartum girdle bands....drink a LOT of water to stop water retention and start doing cardio.....I got HUGE and mine went back.............but not overnight.

It will go away if you work out and eat right.
