Goodness me you've JUST had a baby?! lol! My son is 15mths old and I am still getting some of the baby weight off. lol! Have some patience...you're not even meant to work out for at least 6 weeks afterwards.....enjoy your baby for now and worry about yourself and your looks later.....

Why are we so obsessed with getting back to our pre baby weight?

We have just grown and nurtured another life in us for the last 9/10 months, why can't we just accept our bodies?



I have had 3 children and there is no way I'm going back to my pre baby weight. I am healthy and have curves in the right places that my Husband loves. He loves my curves because he knows that carrying my children has caused them and he knows the wonder that it is.



As long as you are in the healthy weight range for your height, why worry?

I'm still trying to loose some of my baby belly and my daughter is 2yo.
It's slowly coming off, but I do go to the gym 5 times a week. My downfall is I have no self control when it comes to food. I would probably be a size zero if I could cut down on the snacking and I wish I didn't have such a big appetite.

my second and fourth were the hardest to loose (there was a 7 year gap between 2 and 3) not sure why it was like that but it did come off just took time as the other ladies have said.

She's still young. Give yourself some time!! It took you 40 weeks to put it on. My second is almost 3 months. I've still got some weight to lose. At this point with my first I was back to my pregpregnancy weight, but I gained much less. I was underweight when I started this pregnancy so my midwife actually wanted me to gain more (good thing because I gained about 50 lbs). I'm at the point where the weight is coming off very slowly. I'm also breastfeeding and that's always helped me, but I also am very active. I'm always cleaning my house and I wear my baby (who's almost 15 lbs!) while cleaning and that give me a good workout. I also do formal workouts. Right now I like the walking videos because I separated my pelvis during the birth and am still a little sore. I also make sure that I eat healthy. Lot so of veggies and fruits, lean proteins, etc. I do love my carbs so I try to eat pasta, rice, etc in moderation. I recently gave up dairy because my daughter may have a sensitivity. I love everything dairy so it's been hard, but that automatically elimates many sweet treats that I was snacking on. I've lost 2 lbs just since then.

I do realize that my body will be different after each baby. My hips may be a little wider and my pants mayy not fit well even though I'm still that size I may need a different style. Keep at it, eat healthy and exercise! :)

Firstly calm down, we can't all be Miranda Kerr or whichever Model/Actress you know. You've only JUST had your baby. I don't care if you popped her out in half an hour and didn't even work up a sweat, you need TIME to heal and enjoy your baby.

Take it slow, eat healthy and talk with your doctor or trainer at the gym, and work out an exercise program you can start with, and please stop pressuring yourself to be thin. It takes 9 months to make a baby...

It will come off, be patient.
