Tummy Shrinking Progress? Sort Of
My tummy measurement has not gone down! I did figure out that I was probably stressing my abs by the way I was sitting in bed most evenings. I'm not doing that anymore and I am being even more careful about how I do things. I reviewed the DVD Wednesday which is when I realized I have been making it difficult to close the separation by what I was doing.
My husband and I checked my separation last night to see if it had changed. Two inches above the belly button is coming together! We can still feel a strong pulse there though. The other two spots were the same. I'm going to focus more on getting my lower abs to work when I do the exercises. I can pull my upper abs in a lot more than when I started. I should probably buy another splint to wear on my lower abs. I think that would help. I'm going to see what I can make to use for now.
Next week I start the head lifts and use a scarf to pull the muscles together when I do the seated exercises. That should be interesting and possibly painful.
2 Chronicles 25:14-15
Now it was so, after Amaziah came from the slaughter of the Edomites, that he brought the gods of the people of Seir, set them up to be his gods, and bowed down before them and burned incense to them. Therefore the anger of the Lord was aroused against Amaziah, and he sent him a prophet who said to him, "Why have your sought the gods of the people, which could not rescue their own people from your hand?"
