While pregnant I was careful to not take the old “eat for two (or three, in my case)” route, but as every pregnant woman does, I put on weight while growing my babies. After they were born I was hoping the weight I put on would just fall off. A girl can dream, right?
I knew breastfeeding would help with some of the weight loss, and I can verify that yes, a lot of the weight came off quickly. And for good reason. I am feeding two babies at a time!
I’m exhausted just looking at it. It may be a bit of an exaggeration, but not by much. Trying to fit exercise in there isn’t easy.
What I’ve done to try to get both some “me” time and exercise in there is use the stroller and take the kiddos for some LONG walks – on average five miles.
I also recently purchased two DVDs of exercises with baby. I have yet to watch them – what do you mean I can’t lose weight just by looking at them? But I do hope to make them part of my routine soon.
I’m eating healthy, watching my portion size, and breastfeeding. I know the weight went on over time, so it will take time to take it off. And besides, the babies are growing, and that’s the important part, right?
