Default overhanging stomach, anyone?

i was just wondering if there are any of you with over hanging stomachs?
i got mine as a result of my first pregnancy. i know if i lose weight it wont stop over hanging but i dont care about that, so long as it doesnt hang over as much.
whats weird is one side hangs lower than the other! i have a lop sided stomach! or maybe i stand ar an angle and dont realise it....

on a lighter note i weighed myself this morning and have lost 2lbs this last week- whoo!
24lbs to go!

I too have an overhanging stomach/apron stomach. And like you it is lopsided as well. I think that one side has more fat than the other that just has more empty skin. Mine is due to having children. But the fat filled it up and made it more tolerable to look at. As I have lost weight, it has deflated and looks worse. Although no one will ever see it, I can feel muscles underneath.

I have a hang-over stomach/pouch/flap. But I was never pregnant. I hate it. Haha. I hope it will disappear one day. My one side ALSO hangs lower then the other.

I've had one since my first pregnancy when I was in shape and wasn't big. It was almost entirely skin--I know it's gross but I was able to pull on it away from my body. Now that I am much heavier since the 2nd child, the pooch is heavy, but still has too much skin. I hear the only way to get rid of it is a tummy tuck.

I kind've like being small chested. What I don't like is my left breast is smaller than the other and totally noticable. My body sucks. Hahaha.

I dream of having a front end lift--as in a tummy tuck and breast lift/reduction. I'm a D and would love to be a C. Sadly, the girls are pretty saggy now...

I still have a over hanging stomach and my children are 17 and 9 years old. I notice that when I gain weight; I gain in first in my stomach area and my pouch (I had two c-sections) become increases in inches. There is a abdominal exercises for women who have had a c-section but I feel it could also help for over hanging stomachs.

I've had the dreaded hanging pouch thing since my first pregnancy. I will never have a flat lovely stomach or nice perky breasts because of it. I'm only 24 and gravity has completely taken over my body already. I would love to get some lifts and tucks some day!! Only in my dreams... *sigh*

My advice is to get some good underwear. I always wear light control knickers (sloggi or M&S do good ones) which keeps the overhang in place and smooths it out. I don't think its possible to lose it without surgery. My pelvis is now really visible put still the pouch is there.

I've never been pregnant and have an overhanging stomach, I think it's probably from being fat from a young age or something, I have other friends who are UK size 18-20 and don't have have one at all, just a cute tummy that doesn't hang, I would give ANYTHING to have a stomach like that!

I eventually want to get to my goal weight and maintain for a couple of years and see what the situation is, I'm hoping for some tightening because I'm still young (21) and if not I have no problem with getting a tummy tuck, I also want a boob job but that is another thing haha!

I have the overhanging tummy too and I hate it. I adopted so I haven't been pregnant either, but I think mine's from having an emergency appendix operation when I was at my biggest. It's slowly getting smaller though!
