Question: I had my baby 2 weeks ago. I know some of the weight will still come off on its own but a lot of it is fat. I was 120 when I got pregnant and I'm 175-180 now. I went from a size 3 to a size 13. Its really effecting the way I feel about myself. From what I've heard pregnancy weight is hard to loose. Its starting to get hot out and I want to be able to wear tank tops and shorts again and there is no way I would do that right now. I know I will probably never look the way I did before I got pregnant but I would be happy with 140-145ish. So for all the skinny moms out there I need some advice on how to get rid of the baby weight.

Are you breastfeeding? That will make a big difference as to how you can lose weight. If you are, you can't really restrict calories because you are feeding your baby, too, and baby needs those calories to grow. Something I found useful was wearing my baby as much as possible. It was like I was carrying constant weights. Within a few months, my legs looked amazing. The other suggestion is walk as much as possible. Since you've just had a baby two weeks ago, ease into it. Maybe talk to your doctor first to get cleared for exercise. You don't want to tear anything open again (I did, three times. I took forever to heal). Walking is good for you, since you can ease into it, but it's also great to take baby out. Later on, it will help you meet other mothers and make mommy friends. Don't get too caught up in your dress size and weight. I am 20lbs lighter now than I was before I was pregnant, and I wear a size larger, because my hips are shaped differently now. Muscle also weighs more than fat. Lastly, be patient. It took 9 months to put that weight on, so take your time losing it. Your body just had a HUGE task in creating a new life, so go easy on it. Good luck!

When you are losing weight, you should exercise and diet together. If you exercise without dieting, you will get bigger appetite, which will lead to increase of weight, or muscle grow underneath the fat layer, and make you bulkier. If you diet without exercising, you will become flabby and will have excess skin. For diet, go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food after 7 p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If you don't eat wheat then you don't eat all those sticky, fatty goey cakes, you don't eat junk food, and you don't eat biscuits. But your diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to calculate points or to buy special meals or plans. For exercising, start with walking, and then switch to running/jogging. Running is the most efficient and calorie-burn exercise ever. If you are overweight a lot, walk first or you may have health complications (heart attack, disjointed bones and so on). Weight lifting is a good means to target your problem areas for men and women. It's not necessarily to become a bodybuilder or even join a gym - a couple of dumbbells will help you to target your problem areas (stomach, butt, legs, arms, chest).

Agh!!!! The verb you're looking for is spelled 'lose'. Loose is an adjective and it rhymes with goose.

First off, be patient. You didn't gain that weight overnight and it will take awhile to come off. Second, breast feed on demand, and drink a TON of fluids - water mostly, but diluted juice or decaf tea is great too. Avoid soda and other empty calories. Breast feeding burns about 500 extra calories a day and it can really help you take off the weight. (The reason your body wants to store some extra fat when you are pregnant is to support breast feeding afterward, so it will naturally help.) If you are not breast feeding, it is not too late to start with some help, but if it is not possible then you will just have to work a bit harder. Hold your baby a lot, and you can also take her out for walks. If you put her in the stroller, well shaded with the cover so she doesn't get any sun, you can take a good 30 minute walk around to get some exercise. Eat a well-balanced diet with fruits and veggies, lean protein, and whole grains. Avoid eating a lot of sweets and junk food. If you are breast feeding, you don't want to restrict calories as you will affect milk production, but be judicious about what you are eating and always try fluids first. We often mistake thirst for hunger and try to eat to get ourselves some fluids. During the first few weeks after birth, you will lose a lot of extra fluid and blood volume, and your uterus will be shrinking back to its original size (that takes about 6 weeks), so there is some weight loss built into the process of recovery. The fat stores that you added will be used as long as you don't have an overabundance of calories. Last make sure you are enjoying your baby, and try not to stress too much about what your body is doing. You made a child, and that was a lot of work. Cut yourself some slack and take the time to enjoy being a mother. Your body will bounce back but it does take some time.

CARDIO! and also if you lift weights it makes it easier to lose weight and helps boost your immune system. Take a multi vitamin.! Also eat 5-6 small meals a day, take in around 2500 calories. or less depending on your weight, height and such. I say 2500 cals just because that way you are full, and you dont want to starve your body. If you eat Breakfast; 2 egg whites 2 glass of water, multi vitamin Snack: Can of tuna, glass of water lunch; 1 whole chicken breast, Broccli, 1 glass water Snack; can of tuna, 1glass of water dinner: salmon 12 asparagus spears 1 glass water. Do this for a month. YOU WILL LOSE WEIGHT!and of course you can change it up with diff vegatables and such, Try to eat carbs but early in the morning only, like instead of eggs you could do oatmeal. U can substitute salmon for tilapia, halibut, flounder, or other fish. Omega 3s will help. Only Sauce or item that can be used to add flavor is Olive Oil, and vinager. Drink ONLY WATER AND GREEN TEA, and you can have a glass of black coffee in the morning, the caffeine can help with weightloss. May be difficult but well worth it, get to work in the kitchen and the gym. Diet is most important, but you need both in order to succeed.
