I walked - put the baby in the buggy, and off we went. I was an Avon lady at the time, and also walked to pick my daughter up from school every day - we were on the road most of the time! I was also lucky enough to have a 'bums and tums' class locally that had a creche - toots did a bit of socialising, and I did a bit of a work out (although as I was breastfeeding there were some of the 'bouncier' exercises that I had to sit out!). I weighed 71/2 stone (105 pounds) before I got pregnant, and 71/2 stone again three months after giving birth. Eat healthy, and keep moving.

Who knows.. I gained almost 100 pounds with my son, just over 90 to be exact. When you figure it out let me know.. By the way, my son is 17 months old...

I walked and walked and walked and breastfed and I was able to get back into my jenas within a week or two of giving birth. The truth of the matter is that the weight will only come off is you consume fewer calories than you work off. You can do it just put the baby in a front pouch and head out the door. If it's too cold to be outside where you live, walk around and around the mall. Good luck!

Get up off your ass and MOVE. Walking - fast, running -hurts my boobs, or just dancing to the stereo (I prefer ps2 ddr!! yeah I'm old) for moving. I don't do it consistently enough to lose a lot of weight but I can drop a couple of pounds in a week just working out every day.

with my firstborn I did the 8minute abs tape every day - its really just 8 minutes. It has a new name now, but it worked. In 3 months of using that tape every day - sometimes two or three times a day (geeze its 8 minutes who doesn't have time for that?) I was down to my prepregnancy weight.

Running. I lost 15 pounds in 6 weeks by doing that. It was right after I stopped breastfeeding my 4 month old I packed on 15 pounds! So I started running every morning by the end of 6 weeks I had shed the 15 pounds, and had a bikini body! Nobody could tell that I had a 6 month old baby! I actually met my new husband about 4 months into me running everyday and he didn't know that I had a baby at all and she was a year old. I was a runner before I was pregnant and walked my entire pregnancy. If you aren't a runner I would suggest walking everyday at a faster than normal pace for 15 minutes out and 15 back, slowly you will build up your pace and end up running and you will be able to do it for longer and longer periods of time!

Depending on how your body metabilizes is the key. If your breastfeading then you might want to try to do mommy and baby aerobics. Place her on your stomach while you do sit ups or pilaties. Use her as a baby weight lift to tone your arms. Also she at the courious age if she's crawling already crawl around on the floor playing with her. This is the cheapest way that includes her. And there are no diet pills to take.

light exercise and a new way of eating, If you are not breast feeding, lower your carb intake, and increase your fluid intake, Start a light exercise plan with walking, some cardio,and light weight training

I was told by my doctor 9 months up, 9 months down. So don't be so hard on yourself. A healthy lifestyle, drink plenty of water & a good old fashioned walk will be good for the both of you.

I lost a lot of the weight breastfeeding and when that ended, I started cutting down on what I ate and started walking! It has been hard, but so far I have dropped 21kgs in 5 weeks! It is really hard to loose it, but a bit of hard work has paid off!! Drinking lots of water also helps! Good luck with it!!!!
