LOSING WEIGHT... IT IS ONE OF THE HARDEST THINGS TO DO AFTER PREGNANCY... MOST COMMON QUESTION?... HOW QUICKLY CAN YOU GET BACK TO EXERCISE?

SHE WON'T ACCEPT WOMEN INTO HER CLASS WITHOUT A NOTE FROM THEIR DOCTOR... AND NOT RIGHT AWAY...
"We like to see new Mom's after their 6 week post partum check-up."
MOST MOMS GAIN AN AVERAGE OF 30 POUNDS DURING PREGNANCY..
18 - 20 OF THAT CAN USUALLY BE LOST WITHIN A MONTH OF HAVING THE BABY.
THOSE LAST FIVE TO TEN POUNDS CAN BE HARD TO GET RID OF...
HEIDI MURKOFF, AUTHOR OF "WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE FIRST YEAR" COUNSELS NEW MOMS TO NOT EXPECT MIRACLES.
it took you NINE months to gain that weight.. it might take you AT LEAST nine months to take it off. so cut yourself some slack.. just maybe don't cut yourself another piece of cake!
EASTER MAYNARD GAINED 40 POUNDS DURING HER PREGNANCY. SIX MONTHS LATER SHE'S LOST 35 POUNDS.. SHE HAS ANOTHER INSPIRATION...
I love being able to work out with my kid. I know I wouldn't do it if I didn't have the oppurtunity to bring her with me.
AND THAT MAY BE ONE OF THE BEST SECRETS OF LOSING POST PREGNANCY WEIGHT...EXERCISE WITH YOUR BABY.. YOU'RE MORE LIKELY TO STICK WITH IT.
babies love being part of the action and new moms definitely enjoy the commaraterie of being around other new moms.
OTHER TIPS: START SLOW. ONLY SIMPLE EXERCISES THE FIRST WEEK OR TWO. A SLOW WALK CAN GET BLOOD FLOWING TO HELP HEAL C-SECTION INCISIONS OR OTHER DELIVERY DAMAGE.
"It also might help mom deal with her baby blues."
NO AB CRUNCHES..THEY MIGHT HURT YOU. INSTEAD, FOCUS ON PELVIC TILTS, ABDOMINAL COMPRESSIONS AND SLOW BELLY BREATHING TO STRENGTHEN AND TONE YOUR MIDDLE.

natsot/take a drink of that water, moms!


STAY HYDRATED. ESPECIALLY IF YOU'RE NURSING.
AND EAT SENSIBLY.. STRENUOUS DIETING SHOULD BE AVOIDED..
cuz it can zap you of that energy that you so desperately need during those early months of mothering.
MORE ENERGY AND MORE FIT...
IF YOUR DOCTOR GIVES YOU THE "O-K", IT'S A GREAT IDEA TO EXERCISE DURING PREGNANCY TOO.. .
EXERCISE CAN HELP YOU CONTROL YOUR WEIGHT GAIN.. GIVE YOU A BETTER DELIVERY AND HELPS YOUR
BODY SNAP BACK TO ITS OLD SELF QUICKER AFTER THE BIRTH OF YOUR CHILD.
