I had twins also, 2 years ago. My skin looks really good considering but I still feel like it is saggy. I guess it will never be what it 'was' but I focus on core strength to help tone the underlying muscles. Good luck to all!

I totally understand how all of you feel. The waist is still so big after 4 months. I lost 6 lbs so more weight loss to go. I guess for me having my babies is worth the extra skin sagging.
Still want that old flat stomach back.

I can relate to your excess skin problem! My skin stretched WAY out when I was pregnant with twins (who weighed in at a combined 15.5 lbs when born!) Some of my extra skin seems to be getting better as I lose weight, but I am also very concerned about the rest... I'd love to hear of a non-surgical solution!

Exercise does not reduce excess skin... sorry!

It MAY snap back as you lose the fat under it, but usually surgery is the only remedy.

I had 2 c-sections back to back and it ruined me. I have excess skin around my waist. Have you found any exercises that help reduce this any? So far all I have heard is surgery is really my only option.
