pregnancy, baby weight, bump

You spend 9 months growing a baby and expanding and then your precious little bundle arrives. I loved my big bump while I was pregnant but the saggy tummy and extra weight after the birth was less welcome.

What are the best ways to lose the extra weight you put on during pregnancy?

Engage in a personalised exercise program, developed by a fitness professional in line with such a fitness goal. My previous health coaching experience is doing the talking here. Has worked in the past for many post-natal women.
Breastfeeding can help a lot because of all the extra calories you expend making milk. I hear it doesn't work for everyone but it worked like a charm for me and I was back to my pre-pregnancy weight within about a fortnight. Early on it didn't seem to matter how much I ate, the weight just fell off.

Exercise always helps of course, though you should be gentle with yourself at first after the birth, especially if you're recovering from a c-section. Even gentle exercise like walking is a good start.
You've got enough going on to worry too much about that - let the breast feeding help while you can, and then once your own your feet and in your rhythm, and not too tired, then just eat well and try to walk or run a bit more...
I had three children and for some reason, I added 2 kgs. on each one of them that I could no longer lose however hard I try. And the extra weights seem to be all around the belly and thighs. But I keep my regular exercise and try to eat healthy.
Exercise and eating healthy. Don't rush into loosing weight as it can affect a woman's breast milk supply.
I was overweight with my pregnancy and had to lose a lot. I used to stick baby in the stroller and go for long fast walks, and dropped the weight very quickly.
