    Your before and after is amazing! You rock hard with those abs! I haven't even been thinking about abs, but you have planted a seed...

      You look AMAZING batty. Some serious inspiration there. You should definitely bask in the glory of that accomplishment! I would love to have abs like that one day - but my fat tends to hang on my abdomen, I'm not as much of a hip/thighs woman as most ladies seem to be. Oh well, have to see when I get there, won't I??

        I delivered at 34.5 weeks... baby A was 5#5oz, B was 3#11oz... Carried straight out... fortunately no one was up in my ribs... so breathing was almost normal.... but they did offer CRUSHING pain to my pelvis. DH asked what was wrong every single time I attempted to stand up. Seriously? Did you just get here??? LOL!

        Batty... I'm so glad to hear your success... I've had serious doubts that this blob of horror is ever going away. I swear, if I can get the fat off my stomach... If I just cut it off straight down, I'd be about 5 sizes smaller... but ooooohhhhhh no... it's got a life of it's own.

            eh, i did P90X a little bit last year, but not a heck of a lot else when it comes to *specific* ab exercises. i followed The New Rules of Lifting for Women, which DID include ab work, but for the most part, its been all compound movements with weights.

            and really, it IS mostly diet. nothing really started showing until i switched that up.

            twinmama: it takes FOREVER, it seems - keep the faith. i remember constantly looking in the mirror and thinking, "UGH THIS IS NEVER LEAVING ME." just stay as close as possible to the eating habits and things will change.

                Very motivating pictures! After a very severe knee in jury I ballooned to 300 pounds (I'm 6'4"). I was no longer able to run 6 or 7 miles a day to battle all the garbage I was eating!

                I've gone cold turkey on all the garbage and I am 5 days in, which is great for me. Once I make it past 3 days I'm all good!

                I dream of having abs like yours! Great job!

                    Woweeee...I keep coming back to these pics as I didn't think it would be possible!

                    I'm just beginning my primal journey and haven't sorted my exercise properly yet and can't get my head round the heavy lifting yet. I won't have any gym membership and from what I can gather you need access to those for the New Rules of Lifting for Women?

                    Need to trawl the site to work out a good substitute.

                      Mark's free Primal Fitness e-book would be a good place to start. You can do all the exercises at home with no equipment at all - no excuses! It's prominently displayed on the MDA home page.

                        I have that ready to read/print out - would help if I actually did that! Thanks for the push

                              Batty, you look phenomenal!
                              Aside from going primal, were there any dietary changes you made? (IF'ing, no dairy, etc?)
