This definitely works! I used to model and this is what they told us to do and now it just comes naturally. You're telling them right...good advice!

this is basically isometrics, right? I do this alot when I'm getting ready for work, and I'll do it even more now!

The free tummy tuck thing works for as long as your weightloss wasn't too dramatic and for as long as there is not a huge amount of excess skin. To truly know if it works check out how your tummy looks while suckin in and bending over. I something hangs towards the floor... Then it didn't work.

That's what happens to me. It works only if I'm in an upright and standing position ;( so my guess is that i'll need a tummy tuck if i reach my goal weight. But i need to win the lottery first XD

If you win the lottery, then real tummy tucks for all of us - on you!

"I was at a seminar once where the speaker challenged us to hold in our stomachs for a full two minutes. He talked about how difficult it is and that it requires strength and determination we don't usually think about in every day life. He gave us a "go" cue, then went on to talk about other things. At the end of two minutes, he asked who was still holding in their stomachs. A good 2/3 of the audience raised their hands--they'd started but then forgot as they listened to the speaker. He used this as an analogy for how we let our attention drift based on what's going on around us and how it's important to be mindful of what we're doing if we want to get the most out of our fitness efforts. This was back in 1985 and I've remembered it on and off over the years. Thank you for reminding me again. Now...to be mindful about sucking it in. :) " bump

If you win the lottery and are passing out goodies to Mfp folks, instead of a real tummy tuck...I'll take a gift certificate to an organic market or health food store instead. Maybe a $10,000 gift certificate to an organic market will last me for a few weeks or so, cause WHEW....foods and stuff is so expensive in organic markets and health food stores noway grumble explode

I've been doing the same thing... but, not as much as you. I need to start doing this morning. You're right, though... it's definitely not easy. LOL.

Definitely going to be doing this! I've been in maintenance for awhile now, only area I'm not thrilled with is my stomach!

I do something similar to this, I saw this on a web site or youtube, you bend over at the waist, breath out very heavily, then as you breathe in you tighten your stomach and butt muscles and hold for 30 seconds to 1 minute if you can. Continue for 10 minutes twice a day. Seems to help me...

Great post ~ nobody ever talks about this! I have been sucking it in for the last year, I do it naturally without thinking about it now. My belly was biggest problem area and I am happy to say it's not so bad anymore. My six pack will appear one day!

I started doing this in ballet, and I've been working up to doing it all the time. It's definitely hard! But I can now get through 4 1/2 hours of dance classes plus an hour or so before/after with only short breaks :)

Doing this has completely slipped my mind for the past couple of months...beginning again today purposely keeping my tummy pulled in.

Growing up my mother said that a woman is supposed to always have her stomach sucked in no matter what! So I have done this my whole life. I feel very weird if I let it out.

My mom never said it but I have done it as far back as I can remember. It's habit now. Was a huge eyeopener when I DID let it all out to measure sick

how long does it take before it becomes naturally? I've been trying it for weeks but every time my mind slips (like every three minutes) it goes out but then I do it again when I remember so it happens like 20 times a day. when will it just start to happen naturally?
February 15, 2013 8:02 PM
Yes this is part of my overall become more active plan. It was part of what made my belly go away. It never became natural so I just do it as often as I remember. Thanks for the reminder... now I am doing it again.

I was thinking the exact same thing. It seems to super slip my mind and I just thought about it now, so haven't done it all day nor yesterday eitherohwell

I didn't realize that any female not totally comfortable with their weight DIDN'T do this. I have done this nearly my whole weight any time I am around other people. It's totally natural and I don't even think about it.
