Mine is still hanging on, it's probably going to be the last thing to go. Taking bets between that and the cellulite galaxy on my thighs.

I think I shed a couple tears looking at the before and afters. I was so worried I would be stuck with a yucky belly from losing weight. This gives me hope. I've never been obese but I've also always have some kind of a tummy no matter how small I got.

I'm 5'8", 27, with 2 kids. l weighed 235 during both pregnancies and was still 215 when my youngest was over a year old in Nov 2009 when I decided to take control of my health and lose the weight. It took me about 6 months to lose 55lbs and I had maintained around 160 ever since. I kind of fell off the exercise and healthy eating wagon about 9 months ago though and was just feeling run down and looking flabby. I started an *amazing* workout program called Turbofire on 11/12/12 and have lost an additional 20 lbs and finally lost the belly pooch and am in the best shape of my life.
Turbofire 12 week results

Before pics - It was really hard to find any photos that had my belly in it. I avoided pictures period.

To the last two posters - AMAZING work!!

Can you tell us all what you did - especially the lady whos starting weight was 9 lbs more than her current weight!


Thanks! I'm about 70lbs lighter than my starting weight now, and my pooch became more pronounced as I lost weight until I started to incorporate strength training last November. The difference between then and now is phenominal - but I've worked hard, all of December and Jan I trained like a maniac (working out for 2-3hrs most days). Now I'm below my goal weight I've cut it back.

Strength training ontop of a calorie deficit has definitely been key for me losing my pooch.


Thank you! I have been lifting heavy and doing cardio atleast 6 days a week.. your before pic looks like how I look now so you have shown it's totally doable!

I think she means the "after" pic is 9lbs heavier than she currently is, not that she started only 9lbs heavier... If i'm understanding correctly.

For me - eating right, running, lifting, and PATIENCE! That's all it is. Work hard and you'll see the results. If you're not seeing results, change things up. Eat MORE than you think you probably should. I started at 1200 calories and did everything "right" for a month, and no change in either weight or measurements. I upped my calories to 1600+ and dropped the weight. My current profile pic shows me at the exact same weight, about a year apart. On the left, size 12, on the right, size 6. Both at 155lbs. But my body changed with running and lifting. Stick with it, ladies. And you WILL NOT bulk up if you lift. Promise!


Yes, that's what I meant laugh

GREAT advice from both of you, thanks so much for sharing! Lifting is addictive isn't it?

Not gone (I still have SOO far to go!!), but shrinking -- I feel hopeful! This has been over 3 months.

I was mortified at what my lower abdomen looked like after having my daughter. The first 2 months of good weight loss didn't seem to touch my tummy, but then the third month showed a noticeable difference to me.

There's about 9 months between those pics. I don't log weekends or vacations, so I lose weight pretty slowly. I didn't add the lifting in until December; I definitely would have seen results sooner if I had started with that earlier on. 2 months of lifting gave me a 4% decrease in body fat.
