Losing Pregnancy Weight – Get Your Body Back

By Mike Wilson

Losing pregnancy weight as fast as possible is every new mom’s dream, but the iron rule to remember is NEVER compare yourself with any celebrities who giving birth today and gain back her flat tummy tomorrow. Why? Here’s the reasons:

1. You are on your own, not surrounded by nutritional expert, dietician, personal trainer, and fashion designer like she does (excellent designed clothes can hide excess weight).

2. Usually, it is going take months to regain your original weight after pregnancy. If you try to make it faster by reducing calories dramatically, you will encounter a number of health problems, particularly if are nursing too.

Now that I know that the question ‘how to lose pregnancy weight’ can’t be answered overnight, what should I do to lose weight in healthy pace?

1. The first thing you should do is get used to a healthy eating habit; don’t forget to add some regular mild exercises. Once you think that your body has recovered and your period has went back to normal, take a healthy weight loss program to start reducing your extra weight.

2. Walking with your baby is a fun alternative for light exercise; Use a Snugli, swing, or baby jogger and take a 10 minutes walk with your baby on a daily basis.

3. Breastfeeding can help your weight loss process since it will release hormones to your body which will help your uterus to return to its normal size and shape. Please remember not to let your calorie intakes below healthy range; this is important to keep your milk’s quality and quantity. Please DON’T take junk foods as your calorie source, eat only nutritious foods.

When your body has recovered and you feel ready, the next step in losing pregnancy weight is picking a weight loss program; remember that your condition post pregnancy is different from normal people, so do not just take a weight loss program based on its weight loss speed. A good program for post pregnancy mom need to fulfill these criteria:

1. Fad diet is the worst possible answer to the question ‘how to lose pregnancy weight’; overlook any fad diet although they offers you fast weight loss; the unwanted side effects such as hunger, mood swing, and headaches will make you unable to do your everyday activities properly.

2. Teach you about healthy lifestyle through proper food portion and nutrition knowledge; your body hasn’t gain back its original strength and you still have to take care of the newborn baby, so stay healthy all the time is a must.

3. Having adequate portion of workout. Remember that merely lowering your meal portion won’t do. A good designed exercise session can shed your weight quickly, especially in the area with the most problem: the ‘mommy belly’.

4. You are a busy mom who have to take care of the entire family (AND the new family member) or you may even have work to do; these conditions make sparing time for a long cardio exercise or preparing some special foods are plainly impossible. You need a specifically designed program for busy mom that won’t steal your family time.

So, how to lose pregnancy weight? The iron rule is to wait patiently until your body recover from giving birth while doing moderate exercise. Once you’re ready, take a weight loss program that help you stay healthy while losing weight and doesn’t sacrifice your time with the family.
