Tammy Hembrow flaunts ‘mum tum’ after backlash for unrealistic post-partum body

A fitness influencer who was slammed for setting an unrealistic standard for new mums appears to have clapped back at critics with a revealing new bikini video.

Tammy Hembrow came under fire for flaunting her six pack and slender figure to promote her fitness app just 10 months after welcoming her third child last week.

While the 29-year-old hasn’t officially commented on the backlash, she’s since shared a new video that shows her grabbing at her stomach and bending over to show little flesh rolls.

Fans of the fitness star, who has almost 17 million followers on Instagram, have been quick to commend Hembrow for sharing her “mummy tummy”.

“I love that you’re showing all of it! Let’s be proud and healthy even if our bodies are not the same,” one commended.

“The reality of having a flat tummy post partum but the skin is still there,” another applauded.

In the upper echelons of politics, there’s no shortage of men and women working well past the conventional retirement age.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., who turns 90 next month, has said she won’t seek reelection in 2024, but she continues to serve as the oldest member of the U.S. Senate, despite a recent extended medical absence and questions about her mental acuity. In the 2024 presidential election, voters are likely to face a standoff between President Biden, who will be 82 next November, and former President Trump, who will be 78.

Right Bite: Work towards that summer body in a healthy way

These methods may lead to temporary weight loss, but they can have harmful effects in the long run. And guess what? Once you return to your normal eating habits and lifestyle behaviours, boom! The weight tends to come back, and sometimes even more. This creates a cycle of yo-yo dieting that is not beneficial for your overall health.

I always advocate for setting long-term goals that prioritise your mental, physical, and emotional well-being. Rather than fixating on short-term events or specific times of the year, it’s important to view your body and health as a valuable long-term investment. This perspective helps shift the focus towards sustainable lifestyle changes that can be maintained and realistic goals that can be achieved.

Maintain a well-balanced diet: Include complex carbs, lean proteins, healthy fats, vegetables, and fruits.

Practice portion control: Avoid overeating and be mindful of your serving sizes.

Stay hydrated: Drink enough

Johnstown population health center going independent | Local News

Seven years after it was officially launched, the 1889 Jefferson Center for Population Health is ready to fly on its own.

The Johnstown organization has filed for incorporation as an independent nonprofit organization, shedding official sponsorship of Thomas Jefferson University’s Jefferson College of Population Health.

The first-of-its-kind rural population health center was announced in February 2016 and opened its doors in March 2017 with the ambitious goal of improving the health of those living in Cambria and Somerset counties.

Initial funding came from a $7.5 million allocation from the 1889 Foundation, which is the former Conemaugh Health Foundation. It was renamed and restructured as a “conversion” foundation to oversee $110 million from the 2014 acquisition of nonprofit Conemaugh Health System by the for-profit Duke-LifePoint Healthcare.

The Foundation provided the funding to the Jefferson College with a five-year commitment to develop the center and identify areas of need and institute programs
