Hello all! I just started my weight loss journey (I am 5'9 and 237 lbs) and I would like to lose 90 lbs, and I have a question about my tummy.
My stomach muscles seem to protrude out really far. Not like the separated muscle issue where you have a pooch poke out when you sit up. But, like the side abdominals and top abdominals are hard but stick out rather than lay flat.
I have 3 children, ages 5 and 2 (my second pregnancy was twins) so for 5 years I have been holding, lifting and carrying lots of little people! I am wondering i was leaning back and pushing my stomach muscles out everytime I held them to give myself more support.
Does this sound like something that could have happened? Or is it just tons of hard fat?? Honestly, it would be easier to deal with fat bc I have no idea on how to correct stomach muscles that I have conditioned to go the wrong way!
