Update (January 12, 2009):
After doing the Fit Yummy Mummy workout for a couple of weeks, I noticed my clothes were looser! I could also see my arms getting more toned.

I’m not new to exercising. In fact, before I got pregnant for the third time, I had been working out in a gym regularly. Plus, I own a dozen exercise DVDs.
But the Fit Yummy Mummy program is different:
