Congratulations on becoming a new Mum!
You have to create your own motivation - you can find pictures or people that will inspire you , but you alone have to do the work.
First of all I would suggest that you look at the total weight you want to lose, identify why you want to lose it - health? vanity? be able to play with your baby? to get back your joy in life? (I was going to say - but got called to the phone - then break it down into manageable steps e.g. 5kg stages, or 5percent of total weight to lose and realistic time targets - emphasis on realistic and sustainable!!!)
Then - start drinking at least 2litres of water a day - (I'd say stay away from flavoured cos they have unnecessary kilojoules!!)
Make notes of everything you put in your mouth day and night, and calculate the calories - you can use onlineconversion.com to convert kjs to cals - and start tracking.
Use Spark tools for nutrition to calculate what you need to burn to lose weight
Set up an exercise plan - you can use the 10minute Spark videos - and go for walks. Take your baby to the park and meet other Mums too!
Simply joining teams, getting involved with challenges and being accountable to people who care but dont judge - all these can help you
Have fun with your journey to health and fitness
