However a simple fact that every new mother should remember is that your decision to hurry up your weight loss will affect the health of your new born child. Your body goes through a lot of changes and these changes happen over the course of a few months, so naturally they will not go away over night.
Many women ask the question of why they still look pregnant. Well it is because your body will take a little time to get back in shape. What you need to remember is that your breast milk is your baby’s only source of full nourishment.
As such if you start with a fitness regime just yet, then your body will start to go through changes it is not yet ready to go through and the quality of your milk will get sacrificed. Wait at least 2 to 3 months before thinking about starting a weight loss regime.
You have to be very careful while trying to lose pregnancy weight because you have just given birth to a baby and your body is still quite fragile. One of the most natural ways of losing your pregnancy weight is through breastfeeding. This is because breastfeeding requires your body to burn around 500 extra calories per day. By this calculation you will lose around a pound of weight in just about a week.
At this stage this statistic is more than perfect for you. You also need to make sure that even after breastfeeding you refuel your body fully so it stays strong. After breastfeeding you need to eat in order to stay strong and this food will not add to the fat in your body, rather help energize you.
Start by walking around your house for around 10 to 15 minutes every day. Once you feel fairly comfortable with this start doing this outside your house and then gradually increase your time. This will help you stay fit and lose weight effectively.
