How to lose weight and rebuild muscle after a c-section?

I had a baby 9 weeks ago and i’m working on losing weight. I was a fit person before i got pregnant and worked out regularly. I’ve already started walking and i’ve lost 11 pounds in 4 weeks. I’m just wondering if anyone else out there has had a c-section and what are the best work outs to rebuild abs and lose weight? I’m trying to be realistic and i realize that it’s going to take atleast a couple months.

BTW, I’m breast feeding.

    There is a good book called Essential Exercises for the Childbearing Year by Elizabeth Noble, who is a physical therapist. She has really good exercises for getting your abs and pelvic floor back in shape and keeping your core muscles strong and healthy. It may be a good place to start. Walking is fabulous though and it sounds like you are heading in the right direction. Breast feeding is even better, you are burning several hundred more calories a day and that helps with weight loss too. Just don’t be in a hurry, it took nine months to put the weight on and it will take awhile to come off, but it will.

    Sounds like what you are doing is working. My abs were never the same after my c section. They are flat as a board when I stand but rolly and flabby looking when I sit and I do 120 crunches a day still and breastfed til he was 3 and my son is now 5 years old. I look at my abs when I work them and they look so crooked and messed up and parts of them wont even flex anymore. But I didn’t get the xtra skin some women get and they do look great standing up. Lol I get a 2 pack if I work out too much, but the full six has never come back.
