Answer by Sam’s Mum
I’ve always been small and the highest I went to in pregnancy was a size 10. I’m usually a size 4/6. I took my son for 40 minute walks 3 times a day, walk fast and it’s a great workout.

What do you think? Answer below!

  1. I cycle to work (I have a creaky old bike that is stuck in 3rd gear) and go swimming one or two evenings a week, I swim for 30-45 minutes and on evenings that I don’t I do about 20 minutes of light exercise. I also walk/cycle or bus it everywhere in an effort to avoid the car. During the week I eat really healthy food, low salt, sugar, alcohol and meat. No pork and plenty of fish, fruit, vegetables, nuts and pulses. I try not to buy processed foods but the swimming is really the best way to loose the tummy pooch. I live to eat so all this is highly necessary!

    After my first and second child, my body bounced right back. My third child totally destroyed me though. After the fifth I don’t think my stomach actually remembers where or what it is supposed to look like:). I do aerobics, walk, bike, etc. I’m not overweight, but wouldn’t be seen in a bikini.

    Good luck!

    The normal more calories out/less calories in should work, although do remember that you’re a mum now and you need more energy – take it slow and don’t cut out too much from your diet (depending on your height and body type, 1300 – 1400 calories a day should do it).

    As for workouts, if you don’t have a gym with childcare go for activities that you can do with your son, e.g. brisk walk with a pram. Look around in your local community for a mothers’ fitness group – there are usually a few around and you know that they’ll be child-friendly.

    I would say the food to avoid are takeaway and prepackaged food – it’s easy to fall into the trap of not cooking very often since you’re likely busier now. If you’re still breastfeeding, try not to take spicy food and alcohol very often too.
