HONESTLY, your tummy is not bad at all!!!! Have you tried changing your diet such as cutting most sugars and walking a few miles every day? Walking is very good for your back.

I think you should try losing the weight the natural way but if you really want lipo do it after pregnancy. Seeing my mom go through pregnancy and then get lipo after losing the preliminary baby weight has made me realize that your body goes through so much change during pregnancy.

Unfortunately, I would wait until after the pregnancy.

I second trying diet–I went paleo/primal over the summer where I upped my fat, and cut out all carbs except what is in fruits, veggies, and chocolate (lol).  I was always kind of “skinny fat” where my stomach looked lumpy even though I didn’t need to lose weight, and eating that way has totally changed the way my body looks.

how about spanx, so you can feel more confident.

also working a little bit on you posture, try to sit up straight, also walk straight

At 112 pounds I dont think you need to loose weight, I can barely see your pooch but having said that I dont doubt you see it or that you will feel much better about yourself if it wasnt there. I think Lipo is a great idea, but wait until after you have finished having kids.

I wish I knew someone who had done it before having kids….but I don’t.

You obviously are on a good diet and you say working out is limited so I won’t bother with that. 1. Your pooch isn’t too bad but like you, I am self concious about my body so I won’t try to convince you it’s not an issue. 2. Like a PP said, get spanx!

There are these amazing spanx that a lady who had twins endorses called The Squeem and basically it looks awesome. I plan on getting one for post-partum. You might wanna try one now…have your kiddos… and then do the procedure later in life?

Either way-good luck dear! and yaaay for baby fever!

As a mom, I would say wait until after babies-because pooches inevitably tend to come with having babies, as well as stretch marks and excess skin. I would love to have a tummy tuck once my family is complete.

What exactly is smart lipo and how does it differ from regular lipo?

with lipo, you have to be careful to try not to gain weight ever agin. it won’t come back to the spot that was lipo’d (in your case, the stomach). but when your body gains weight, it needs to put the fat somewhere, it will find a place. sometimes with unexpected results– for example, back fat where you didn’t have back fat before. 

so, if you get smartlipo and then get pregnant, just be reeeeeeaaaaly careful to only gain the weight that is required for the baby, nothing more. 

just me, but that sounds really difficult and maybe you should wait until you are finished having kids.

@MrsDulce: Wait until after the baby. After about 6 months of breast feeding and working with a personal trainer I plan to have a breast lift and a little lipo to get back to normal.

@MrsDulce: There is this one wrap they do at my spa (never tried it) but they wrap you in this seaweed stuff for a couple hours on the area you want to work on…for me they’d wrap my thighs for your theyd wrap your belly…..and basically for up to 5 days? after that you are inches flatter and smaller. I know my salon charges 150 for it. I was going to do it right before our honeymoon but then realized all of my honeymoon mini skirts and bikini bottoms might not fit well if I did it so I opted out.

Anyways—-it’s worth a look:

How about a mini tumi tuck? I would def wait till afer babies!

I think you look gorgeous, and I didn’t notice yoru belly! It’s up to you at the end of the day.

I have what you are describing, so I know how it can be. You can drive yoruself into an eating disorder ( which I did years ago) trying to get rid of it!
