Baby weight

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

I have found myself to be one of those fortunate women who loses weight while pregnant. At least until the last trimester where I gain it all back plus some, but the misery is short lived and after baby is born the weight comes back off...

So, with this last birth 16 days ago I am now own 21 pounds down from my pre pregnancy weight and it hasn't stopped yet.

How do I keep the momentum going?! I'm walking daily as much as my postpartum self can's eating healthy that's not going as well. I'd really love to NOT sabotage myself this time.

I lost momentum with my first child and gained back 50 pounds! I will not do that this time! I'm taking this weight loss blessing and running with it!

    If your breastfeeding keep it up as long as possible....found this extremely helpful.

    Get sleep. So if you can't at night, take naps with your child.

    Join a baby and me group as your child gets older so you can exercise together.

    When it comes time to wean, think of starting to wean back on your food too. Try to do it gradually, or if your child decides to stop suddenly..pump until your food increase comes down.

    Now those are 25 year old suggestions....that worked for me, but then one last one:
    as they get older never lose track of the fact that setting aside time for your own fitness is one of the best gifts to give your children....I didn't do this and now am playing catch up.
