I am not fat, so what is it???

I recently posted under the subject of "Exercising to Excess". Well, I am still excerising, however probably not as much as when it was warmer. I still feel the need though. But that's irrelevant. My question is -- since I now weigh between 104-107 lbs., have done every type of ab exercise they have on On-Demand TV as well as the AbSlide almost everyday, why do I still have what looks like a small pouch of fat hanging over my C-Section scar.

The scar is approximately 6.5/7 inches and that is the only place on my body that has anything hanging that I don't want to hang.

At this point, I believe that no amount of ab exercising will get rid of this.

Anyone know what it is? Just extra skin that I have been carrying around for the last 21 years????

I would guess it was stretched when your baby was lifted out and if it was stretched enough it won't go back. There is no way to put back elasticity.

What is it? It sounds like you're still obsessed with your appearance. 104-107 lbs. is too low for 5'7".... that weight is ideal for someone around 5'3".
