4 Keys To Losing The BABY WEIGHT
Gain too much weight when you were pregnant? Having a hard time shedding those extra pregnancy pounds? You are not alone. Many new moms find themselves stuck with extra pregnancy weight months even a year after they give birth. The following information will help you shed those extra pregnancy pounds.
It can be hard to find time to exercise when you have a little one to care for, but exercise is essential to shedding those extra pregnancy pounds. You need to get 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity weekly and two days of strength training. Consider taking your baby for a stroll if you are having trouble getting away.
Make a Plan
If you just play it by ear you are a lot less likely to shed those left over pounds. Talk to your health care provider. Join a weight loss support group or diet plan. Having a strategy helps get you started and keeps you motivated.
Women who breast-feed six months or longer are significantly less likely to retain their unwanted pregnancy pounds. Every one talks about how beneficial breast-feeding is for baby, but many don’t know how good it is for mom too. It helps burn calories and it can help reduce the likelihood of developing postpartum depression.
Most new moms are so focused on their little one that they forget to take care of themselves. Stress can cause weight gain, so it is important to take a breather every now and again. Set aside some time that is just for you. Ask your partner to watch the baby while you take a yoga class or do something else relaxing. Losing the baby weight is important, but if you stress yourself out about it, it can be come counter productive.
