I hope this is where I am supposed to post this because I am still kinda sidelined! <img alt="drunken_smilie.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/drunken_smilie.gif"><br><br>
So I am up to running 1.5 miles without stopping! <img alt="icon_cheers.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_cheers.gif"><br>
Here is the problem though...My stomach is all flabby now. I need stomach exercises that work! Any suggestions?

Zina - I found this link that has the 10 best (supposedly)<br><br><a href="http://exercise.about.com/od/abs/ss/abexercises.htm" target="_blank">http://exercise.about.com/od/abs/ss/abexercises.htm</a><br><br>
I use some of the ones from Sparkpeople too, like regular crunches, clamshell crunch with ball, modified side plank, bicycle crunches, etc.

Have you ever done pilates? Within a month of practicing 2X/week, many of my students report seeing changes -- all report feeling stronger.<br><br>
There are some good videos out there if you can't get to a class.

when you do crunches/abdominals, do you do the good 'ol kegels??!!!<br>
My PT says we ladies should. I looked at him and said it's been 10 years since I last gave birth.<br><br><br>
I "need" my uterus to fall out. My doctor thinks elective hysterectomy for me is extreme, but we have to make my monthly process more minimal. Looks like she wants to send hot liquid up there. <img alt="razz.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/razz.gif">ale:

Now I'll add kegels to my new routine. <img alt="drunken_smilie.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/drunken_smilie.gif"><br><br>
My sister just had that done 2 weeks ago.(If you're talking about the balloon procedure??? I can't remember the name...) I really hope it works for her. I had never heard of it.

I believe that procedure pretty new, my doctor talked about it and said she read good results. I didn't want to be her "guinea pig". We're looking at an uteral ablation, but I keep putting it off. I had a hysterosalpingograpy where they put liquid in to get a better ultrasound and when they released the fluid, it hurt alot. I know a few women that got the ablation and they get real skimpy periods.

I'd like my uterus to fall out, too... would make lots of things in life a lot easier.<br><br>
The dang thing does nothing but cause me grief anyway.

Ever since my c-section in 2005, I've been flabby too, can't seem to get it tight anymore to save my soul.<img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

you didn't have a vertical cut did you??<br><br>
I hear you though, I had that problem with my '93 c-section. (bikini cut) With my '96 one I remember the doctor saying "hmmmm. I going to clean this up a bit" and honestly, the scar became smaller and my abdomen looked better. I guess there was alot of tissue buildup.

Nope, a horizontal right across my bikini area. Its nice because even with a (TMI warning) thong, the scar is covered up.
