Bye-Bye Belly: 3 Tummy-Shrinking Tips from Fitness Expert

I hate looking at my tummy. I hate seeing the bulge of my tummy hanging over my pants. I hate it when my tummy is literally sitting on my thighs when I sit. I looking like pregnant when I'm not. When I sit and read a book, I can put the book on my tummy. It jiggles when I laugh. It is so big that I'm wondering if it is possible for me to shrink that big tummy! I always inspired by weight loss success stories. It is impressive to see how their tummies really shrink and flat compared to the "before" pictures.

Weight Loss Success Story: Ruth lost 150 lbs in 10 months
Amazing body makeover: Ruth lost 150 lbs in 10 months
I post an incredible weight loss story of Ruth aka DivaSlimsDown some time ago. You might be interested to read if you've missed it. She went from 341 lbs to 191 lbs in 10 months. Her once flabby and jiggly belly is now flat and toned. There's hope, anyone can get a flat tummy without surgery! I do care to share stories like this to inspire myself and fellow weight loss buddy. Ruth said that at first she was hesitant to lose weight because she didn't want to have a host of loose skin. It then appeared to be the best decision she ever made.

How she made her tummy shrink?

Marguerite Ogle, a Pilates guide on Compasionate Wellness shows us this 4 tips to get that flat abs.

1. Lose Weight
Fat on top of the abs will hide them and give a round appearance to the abdomen. Losing weight is the first step in gaining that flat stomach. Weight loss happens all over the body. Spot reduction is mostly a myth, so keep your workouts balanced.

2. Stay Hydrated
Retaining water can make you look and feel fatter than you are. Too much salt in our diet causes water retention. Even if you are retaining water, it is still important to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of pure water. Drinking enough water will help flush out excess sodium and water.

3. Doing Pilates Moves Correctly
When done correctly, forward bending exercises in Pilates will give you beautiful abs. But if you do them in a "crunchy way", you won't get the real core strength you're looking for and your belly will stick out.
