I agree...start slow! Your best bet is probably to put baby in a stroller and start taking walks around the neighborhood. That was you're getting exercise and baby is getting some fresh air!

How are you doing w/ eating? The thing that helps me the most is to plan my meals in advance. That way I know what I'm going to eat for the day and I don't let myself get too hungry and start scrounging around for something to eat...which never ends well.

Are you breastfeeding? If so, you don't want to eat less than 1800 calories/day. If not, I think the lowest you want to go is 1200 calories/day.

Hope that helps a little bit!

Oh, and welcome to the team!!!

I dont know your fitness level but for me after my baby was born I was 5 years out of shape! If you are a beginner pick an activity like walking, jogging, running, cardio machines, etc and start off with 10min intervals and try to do at least 2 a day until you can do 3 a day (for however many days a week you want), soon enough you will find that you can go for 30-60min straight once your body gets used to the activity.

and Water!!! drink your water!!

hope this helps
