Will I be able to lose it??

Hi there! I have a question!!!

Can I lose my tummy fat! I am not a big person, pretty skinny actually and I could use some fat in certain areas, however, I have 2 kids and my last pregnancy was 5 years ago. I have a little bit of fat I want to get rid of and I know I need excercise to lose it but people keep saying that you can't because it's been 5 years since I had my son.... Uuuggghh!!!

I guess I just need to try and find out right?

any suggestions anyone

Re: Will I be able to lose it??

Of course you can. but it sounds like you would really benefit from srength training. If you think of yourself as 'skinny' but still have areas you want to lose fat, adding some lean muscle will help tremendously. You definitely do not want to become underweight, so putting on some healthy weight will increase your metabolism and help you to lose fat. Consider picking up the Body For Life book. It's a great beginner's program that will help you to do exercises and plan a healthy diet.
One thing you need to really, critically assess is if it is fat on your belly or if it is loose skin from the pregnancy. If it is fat, it can be lost. If it is skin that has not pulled back into place, there is really no solution to getting it back to normal other than surgery.

That is my problem also... I can't tell if is lose skin or fat.... I mean I can pinch it... but when I am standing up looking in the mirror it is not droopy or anything but when I sit it rolls over....

It may be a little bit of both. If you have other areas that seem to be holding more fat than you would like, then you probably still have a little left to lose and strength training will definitely make a difference.
