weight loss after birth?

I was wondering for all you mommies what helped you lose your tummy weight? Also if any of you know of a girdle type thing that helps you lose the belly weight? Thanks in advance!  :)

There's the Belly Bandit and Bellafit. I'm going to try one myself after my baby is born. I hear really good things about them.

Oh, I perfectly understand you. The tummy weight is indeed the hardest to lose but it will go if you have the right amount of determination. Set goals, plan, and work hard on achieving your weight goal.
I know that is easier said than done, especially with a little baby in tow but you can find a way if you really want.
Find time to exercise whenever you can and make fresh fruits and vegetables the bulk of what you eat.
If you are not breastfeeding, I can recommend Liproxenol. It contributed immensely on my weight loss.
As for girdles, I'm not really a big fan as I can't stand the restriction in movement.
