Losing the baby weight…it ain’t easy!

As new moms losing the baby weight must be the one part of pregnancy most of us hate, or were not looking forward to…sure I did love giving into my cravings and enjoying a Thai curry every other day at work for lunch, or the unlimited supply of chocolate and candy in the office that I have not held myself back from…but now I am paying the price for it!

When I fell pregnant I was already at my biggest self, and even though I have birth to a tiny 2.4kgs | 5.5lbs baby, I ended up putting on well over 20kgs | 40lbs, which I am now struggling to lose.

The good news is, I am half way through it all, having already lost over 10 kgs fairly easily after giving birth, but like I said – when I started I was my biggest, so I also need to lose an extra 10 kgs I have been piling on during the past few years. 

I always look at the skinny moms around me, who only ever had a big belly and lost it within weeks from giving birth (slightly jealous) – but I sigh as I realize: that it will never be me! 

So what can I do? Shall I embrace my new curves and enjoy life as a plus size mom, or lose it all? I personally would feel better with myself if I could lose it..Is it possible for me to achieve this goal? Ideally before going back to work in October? 

Between sleep deprived nights, baby nappies and quick meals – I have to give it a try! 

So after much deliberation, I have decided to try withholding my sweets cravings and my carbs intake for the next two weeks, eat healthily and take long walks with the baby – and see what happens.

Today is my Day 1 of this new routine, and I will update you all on the result in two weeks. 

How did you lose the baby weight? Did you diet? How did you find the time to exercise?
