How To Lose Weight From Bums Hips & Thighs


One of the main motivators for someone to lose pregnancy weight is often to lose weight in a specific “problem” area and on the Lose Baby Weight plans we get lots of questions about how to lose weight from bums, hips and thighs which we are going to cover here. post_pregnancy_exerciseWe cover the problem area of stomach fat in a separate section here.

Firstly, it’s often the thinking, the approach that’s a problem. There are no super fast fixes that achieve long term results.

You’ll be much more successful in sticking with an exercise regime and achieving your goals and a sense of satisfaction if you view your body as something beautiful to embrace and work with rather than battling bulges. Slow and steady does it. Especially if you’ve just given birth!

If you’re blessed with a beautiful Beyonce behind, you can certainly give it a more toned look and also improve the skin tone. What you cannot do is totally change your body shape entirely.

Your plan for improving your delicious behind and legs will be to make sure you have a healthy diet and avoid all the usual suspects to start with – The Lose Baby Weight plans really come into their own here as they are the perfect way to ensure you have a healthy diet which helps you lose that pregnancy weight and when you combine this with sensible exercise then you have a recipe for success.

Also, a point to note is that if you are a caffeine lover and drink a fair few cups a day plus throw in other things like saturated fats, sugar and toxins to take your body on a joyride,  you’ll make fat cells in those “problem” areas bloat and hang out together. Party time.. So best to steer clear of these toxins and instead eat healthy foods that will help your cells detox.

What exercise can help these areas?

Healthy diet – check. Now, add in regular cardiovascular exercise. It helps burn fat and without it, you can tone up all you want, you’re efforts will be well hidden.

After giving birth, stick to walking to start with and once you are regularly walking you can then start to increase the intensity of your walks – and you can get some tips on how to do this here. You can add in swimming once you’ve been cleared by your doctor. Cycling and running are okay once your abs have healed.

A great, safe and more fun way to get some cardio into the mix when you haven’t been doing any running, is a mini trampoline. It’s not just a whole lot of fun to bounce but it also triggers your lymphatic system – draining excess fluids and toxins -, activates your core without you having to think about it and will improve your fitness level, skin tone and legs at the same time. Almost too good to be true!

If you don’t have a trampoline, skipping is a great alternative but be careful as your joints will have to absorb much more impact! The first months after pregnancy, you could try our pilates mat exercises ON the trampoline – it’ll add an additional challenge, triggering your stabilising muscles.

Healthy diet, cardio workout – check! Now onto those delicious thighs, hips, butts. Check out the pilates side lying series video below. It’s super effective and very safe even if you have not fully healed your abs yet. (just be careful getting in and out of position!) once you are more advanced, progress to kneeling instead.

Enjoy your workout and remember: positive attitude! Embrace your body and listen to it at all times. Less is so often more.
