    Try out Organs In Place/Half Frogs Sequence (OIP/HF) (http://www.t-tapp.com/articles/flatstomach/)! The reason that Organs In Place is so effective is because it helps you connect to your transverse abdominals, cinching and pulling the organs IN and UP!

    I recently held a Facebook challenge for my fans, challenging them to add OIP/HF every day, 2 times per day for 7 days in a row and the results reported were astounding. Most lost 1-3 inches within the 7-Day Challenge and continued to lose.

    Be sure to measure before you start so that you can monitor your results. Let me know how you do!

    Mine went flat when I lost all my extra weight but I was in my 30’s. Now I understand that at 59, as I lose this weight, the belly is already stretched and I would have to go lipo. But I probably weigh twice what you do.

      Thanks for your reply. Gaining and losing weight a zillion times got me the belly-sticking-out problem. Be careful even thinking of lipo! Based on friends’ experiences, it’s not what it’s cracked up to be. You could have all sorts of extra skin hanging in place plus the weight/fat just somes back, only in a different spot. I think Jamie Lee Curtis wrote about her experience.

    I like Pilates. There’s quite a few beginner DVDs that have 3-4 10 minute segments so you can do one or do them all! My fave ab exercise is called “The 100″ – Lie on your back with your knees on top of your chest and stretch your arms down at your sides. Now roll your chin and chest off the mat so that you are raised up on your shoulder blades drawing your shoulders away from your ears. Extend your legs long and as low as you can while still keeping your lower back on the mat. (if you can’t start out with your legs straight and low, you can raise them a bit higher, with the ultimate goal eventually being about 6” off the ground). Lift your arms 6 inches and quickly pump them up and down five times while inhaling and pulse them down another five times while exhaling. Repeat 10 times to make 100 pumps.
