How To Lose Pregnancy Weight

By Terri Bennett

Great tips to get your pre-pregnancy figure back!

Post Pregnancy Weight is Part of the Pregnancy Cycle.

In my opinion, post pregnancy weight is the hardest weight to lose. Weight control is a prevalent concern for many women after pregnancy. Incidentally, those who do gain weight over and above what is normal are the ones who struggle most with post-pregnancy weight loss, and fatigue.

Are you anxious about losing that post pregnancy weight after having a baby?

Most women experience a case of the "baby blues" after the birth of their child. There are ways though to gain back your pre-pregnancy figure.

Other causes of weight gain during and after pregnancy is the strange sleep patterns strained on you by a newborn. It can disrupt your metabolism and make it difficult for you to lose your pregnancy weight.

Gaining weight during pregnancy is inevitable; breasts are usually the first body parts that gain weight since there are many fatty cells in the tissue. So one great way to lose some of your pregnancy weight is to breastfeed!

It pulls all of your abdominal muscles every time your baby suckles, as you well know the feeling. It’s a fantastic way to tighten all those muscles.

Diet and exercise will shed the post pregnancy weight. It can be controlled and reduced with an exercise program and healthy food choices.

Through diet and exercise, it's reasonable and healthy to lose about a pound a week, that said some women will lose their pregnancy weight in as little as six to twelve weeks. Usually, women usually lose most of the weight, but often a remaining ten pounds will refuse to budge.

However, these tips will get you started to losing that “mummy tummy”:

• Stomach toning exercises. Sit-ups for example. You can watch your baby whilst doing these exercises.

• Enjoy a different routine of effective exercises. Such as yoga, Tai Chi etc.

• Consider joining a weight-loss program like Weight Watchers to keep the weight loss controlled. To ensure it doesn’t creep back on.

• Breast feed- it’s the ideal way to sculpt those muscles back into shape!

Remember; though to lose your weight safely. Exercise will help you regain muscle tone, lose weight and give you more energy.
