Hi...I had and still have a HUGE gut. When I started my new plan I did measure the largest area of my stomach. Even though it's still the largest area of my body, I have lost 10.5 inches from my gut. I know it will take a long time. Even as a child I had a "thick" stomach, as do my children.

Since you have been pregnant and nursing for the last 9 years I realize this is not your problem, but I have learned over the years that alcoholic beverages really contribute to the size of my gut. I haven't had a drink in 5 months and that has helped tremendously. (With weight, edema, and overall health)

I plan to have a tummy tuck once I reach goal and maintain my weight for a minimum of 6 months.
Highest weight - 333 pounds. Lost 193 pounds by calorie counting in 2008/09. Regained 73 pounds in the last 7 years and am working on getting back to a normal BMI.
