How to get a flat stomach after having twins? Don’t bother, eat cake and be happy.

Last week I finally hit my Slimming World target. I say finally, because to be honest, I should have hit it months ago if I’d just put my mind to it. And stopped eating cake. And drinking wine. After giving birth to Toddler I lost more weight in less time than I have after the… Continue reading How to get a flat stomach after having twins? Don’t bother, eat cake and be happy.
