I don’t understand why women think its hard to lose the baby weight… I’m 23 and a mother of 2 and am 5foot6 and 120lbs and don’t look like I’ve had children. I’ve always gone on walks 3-7 days a week, eat whatever I want (pizza 2-5 days a week) breastfeed both children and within each baby being 1 week old I’m back to normal weight (gained about 60lbs with each child as well, and have size DD breasts with a size 2 waist)

    a friend told me that the best way to lose baby weight is walking. don’t know how true it is but it couldn’t hurt to try. good luck!

    I didn’t want to know how much weight I gained during my pregnancy (have a huge insecurity about my number) so I think for the little bit I did find out I gained around 25-30lbs and so far from pumping (i pump+do formula) and walking 2-3times a week and avoid fast food and pop most of the time I have 10-15 lbs left before I back to around my pre pregnancy weight (I weighed myself 6months before I got pregnant so not 100% what my weight was) it could be because I’m 20 I lost it so fast I don’t know. Good luck!!

    Try ten minute trainer. Fast workouts, but they can be kind of intense. Great for new moms who don’t have much time. As for diets, I love my Paleo diet. Look it up. It’s pretty much only eating lean meats, fruits, and veggies. I lose 6lbs a week. Pretty great. No sugar, salt, dairy, or grains.

    I think Justin-Tara needs to get over herself and realize not every woman’s bodies recover as quick as that, she’s just an ignorant, cocky moron who’s likely been a stick all her life and doesn’t appreciate the curvier woman.
    Cut out sugary treats and limit yourself to one carb a day. Eat plenty of white meats like fish and chicken and eat plenty of veg. If you can afford it, join a gym and use the treadmill, cross trainer and stepper to uliminate baby weight. If you can’t afford that a simple walk or speed walk would do you great! Good luck and hope it goes well! Don’t be too hard on yourself because being a mother is a busy job and you can only push yourself so far!x
