losing weight after giving birth
24 Nov 12
If you gained a lot during pregnancy, then it really will be a challenge to go back to your pre-pregnancy weight. So, the best way is not to gain much, in the first place. Try to keep a good diet and exercise during pregnancy, and continue with it postpartum, but only when you have recovered and ready to do exercises as advised by your doctor. Now, if you're like me, who has gained more than 40lbs during pregnancy, I focused on shedding off the gained weight by dieting and exercise like zumba and pilates. After 5 months, Im now back to my pre-pregnancy weight. However, I still need to lose more because I was already a little overweight before I got pregnant.

Agreed! God im choking myself on fruits and veggies but my weight is still the same. i don't gain weight which is good but then i don't lose weight too!!! im worried im stuck like this. Then i have to buy whole new set of wardrobe. I don't know, all i do is eat lots of veggies and fruits.

If you notice celebrities especially in Hollywood they already working out before getting preggy and even attend some yoga class and Pilates during the pregnancy, then after giving birth they are working out harder and voila back to their old body

most of your pregnacy isn't fat but your stomach streatching so skin streathing isn't going to go back to normal right away a bit of it is from baby and it does take more work because your muscles have to return to there normal position before having a baby and that just doesn't happen over night. The best way is to watch what you eat, and work out.

Hi there. I haven't really given birth to a child but I think I can understand your feelings. Some of my friends are already complaining because they gained weight while they are still pregnant and it is so hard for them to lose weight now that they have given birth. I think you just have to focus. But I wish for you to rest first because the first to second month after giving birth is not really easy. You need to take some rest first before heading yourself to the gym and losing weight. You can also go on a fruit diet. Just take some fruits and vegetables first for you to maintain the body weight that you have and if you are ready to lose weight then go run outside or go to the gym. You can also take some dietary food. I take USANA's nutrimeal. It is a food replacement program which could really help you to lose weight. I lost weight 2kg in just one week. Try it
