Now that I'm weeks into the 18-week program, I'm starting to do other exercises in addition to the Tupler exercises that I talked about in my previous blog.

Do you still look pregnant, even though you’re back down to pre-pregnancy weight?  I had three kids close together – when my youngest was born my oldest was only 2.5 yrs.  My body never had time to recover in between babies, and I never was able to work at getting down to pre-pregnancy weight before having the next baby.  So once my youngest was a toddler and for the first time in five years I wasn’t breastfeeding or pregnant, I started working on getting rid of that mommy tummy by eating right, doing cardio several times a week along with...
