When to start post pregnancy weight loss?

Your body needs time to recover from having your baby. So your practitioner won’t recommend that you go on a diet or start exercising straight after you’ve given birth. Normally, after four to six weeks you can start with some light exercise.

My experience says when your baby is around four to five months start with your goal and give it a time period of six months to get back to pre-pregnancy weight. If you have gained very less then its an altogether different story but if the weight gain is more than 15kgs you will need around five months to lose them. I am considering all the factors when I say around five months.

Let’s understand the right time to start this journey, below are a few questions which you need to ask yourself before starting the journey.

  • Is your body ready, when means no pain around your stitches and you don’t feel week?
  • Check if you don’t have any swellings around your breast or abdomen.
  • Make sure you don’t get your stitches stretch.
  • Are you getting proper sleep? Which means during nappy change and feeding duties are you getting enough sleep to start a new journey?
  • How important is weight loss for you? Which means are you thinking a lot about it or you are feeling ashamed of your body or you don’t want to buy new clothes?
  • Are you breastfeeding? If yes, you are already burning few extra calories and if you feel week then give weight loss a second thought.
  • Do you have help or support?

Better will be to check with your doctor but normally after 6 weeks, our body gets ready to start with some exercise.

Weight loss- A commoner way to think!

Not being a celebrity and having limited access to everything can’t come in between you and your health. There are so many ways to we can work so that our body became strong and healthy. I understand that we commoners are busy with our daily life so much that we don’t have time for our health but if we take out 30 mins from our daily busy life and we will be much more happy and healthy.

What we should do to make yourself think exercise is important for our health?

  1. Health is more valuable than money. You cant buy it so work for it. If you don’t work on your health thinking that it is not important and you don’t have time. Then you have to spend much more time and money visiting doctors. So change your mindset and understand “health is wealth.”
  2. If you are healthy and strong you can do more work. Yes, being healthy in a way will help you to work more and earn more.
  3. You look younger and fit if you follow a regular exercise plan.
  4. As time is changing we are not getting proper food which results in many deficiencies in our body but if we take care of our body and understand our physical body needs we can save much more pain which our body will go through.
  5. A fit body and soul is a healthy place and all good things will want to stay there. So start today, start now and take care of your health and mind.

There are many reasons you can ignore your health but a single reason to take care of your health will solve many problems. So don’t think twice but start from today!

How do I #getbacktoshape post pregnancy!

I lost some ten kgs in about 3 months just by following few diet tips and floor exercises at home. Being a mom it’s often tough to do things for self and leave your baby and go to gym unless you have a very strong support system. Unfortunately I have no support system which will allow me to leave my baby and get out to the gym, so I started doing my own exercises and managing my diet.

Five point which will help you in weight loss:

  • Drink water not caffeine.
  • Drink your food, yes I said it right. When you add extra water to your soup or milk it will not only full your stomach but will help you in not taking those extra calories.
  • Eat a good breakfast. Eating what you like in your breakfast will make your day energetic and full of happiness but if possible avoid oily and sugary stuff.
  • Do some 30-40 mins of floor exercise at home and get out with your baby for morning and evening walk.
  • Do your dinner before sunset. Yes and it helps a lot to get #backtoshape.

Follow this routine for about a month and then increase your exercise time slowly.
