healthy_eatingIf you’ve lost weight in the past only to put it back on again, you’re not alone.
Many of us have tried to lose pregnancy weight with fad diets or drastic weight loss measures only to find that the weight piles back on once we return to normal.
So if you’re sick of the yo-yo, and want to know how to set yourself up for a realistic weight loss goal for losing weight after pregnancy – read on.

Be Realistic

Saying that you are ‘on a diet’ makes it sound like a short term thing.
Here at Lose Baby Weight we believe that to lose pregnancy weight, you need to find something that you can realistically do – for good.
That’s why you will see that our plans don’t recommend cutting out any of the major food groups, or eating a packaged meal that gets delivered to your door, or downing numerous pills and miracle potions.
So before you begin your weight loss journey, ask yourself if this is something that you can see yourself sticking with.
If not, perhaps you aren’t quite ready (or you just haven’t found the right plan yet – check out our 28 Day Plan here).

Don’t Be In A Rush

Giving yourself a crazy deadline to work towards will only stress you out and make weight loss harder. Be kind to yourself.
Remember that your body has made a baby and that takes a lot of work. It also means that you need to take it easy and not expect results within a few short weeks.
Read some stories here from real mums who explain how long it took each of them to lose pregnancy weight.

Get The Support You Need

Do you know the saying that a problem shared is a problem halved? We agree wholeheartedly, and that’s why we offer so much support to mums who want to lose pregnancy weight.
Follow us on Facebook and Instagram; sign up to our daily motivating emails; give us a call; or send us an email.
You can also sign up to our free Eat Move Lose Challenge which kicks off January 1 – details here.

You may also find that the support of a weight loss buddy can be really beneficial. Read more about that here.

Get Organised

There’s nothing like a packet of chocolate biscuits in the house to derail a healthy day’s eating.
So do a clean out – get rid of things that can tempt you (and of course don’t buy any more) and stock up on fresh, wholesome foods that will work with you instead of against you.
Arrange some babysitting so that you can fit a workout in. Plan your meals and snacks for the week so that you don’t end up ordering in.
Get your hands on our 28 Day Plan and our Healthy Mummy Smoothies so that you know what you should (and shouldn’t) be eating.

Move Your Body

Healthy eating is a big part of losing pregnancy weight, but if you want to see results such as a reduction in body measurements or a more defined body – you will need to exercise.
Something as simple as walking each day (to the park, to the shops, up and down the stairs) can be enough to start seeing results.
Have a backup plan in case of rain such as our Exercise DVD which is made specifically for mums and has all of the workouts broken down into 10 and 15 minute segments (it’s also fine to use if you are pregnant).

Stay Positive

Don’t let any past attempts at weight loss or healthy eating stop you from trying again.
The Lose Baby Weight plans are different. We don’t encourage you to starve (we recommend 3 meals + 2 – 3 snacks a day in fact) and we don’t leave anything off the menu. You can see how our plans work here
So even if you have a less than ideal day of eating, there’s no need for an ‘all or nothing’ approach.
Treat each day as a new opportunity to reach your goals and you will lose pregnancy weight in a safe and healthy way.
