I have already told you that after giving birth, I had 18 extra pounds. I started to lose weight when I was still breastfeeding. I knew that you could not sit on a diet, so I used other methods to reduce weight.
You can not eat for two
Even during pregnancy, my appetite increased. It really seemed to me that I eat both for myself and for the baby. And after giving birth, this habit has remained. When I noticed that my figure was expanding shamelessly, I decided to tell myself a stop.
I reread a lot of literature and realized that when breastfeeding the body requires replenishment. Therefore, subconsciously, I, like many mothers who had just given birth, ate for the future.
I decided to divide my plate into two parts. I enjoyed eating the first half and left the second. Then my portions by themselves diminished.
And I read that the most correct thing is to eat in the daytime after you feed the baby. I was able to eat 5 times a day. At the same time, my volume of food at a time was equal to 1 glass.
After 19 hours I forbade myself to go to the kitchen. And, you know, after the first month of such a power schedule, I began to lose weight.
Walking is useful!
I began to walk more. And I noticed that long walks only add energy to me.
Every day, in the morning and in the evening, I pulled out the stroller with the baby and set off. By the way, I noticed that the arm muscles during this time, too, pulled up – this is not an easy thing – to lift the stroller! 🙂
I walked with the baby for 2 hours in the morning and the same in the evening. And the walk with a quick step brought me more pleasure than slow walking. Yes, and I was tired much less.
Until now, I try to walk at a brisk pace – my leg muscles are strengthened, my pounds are hidden in front of my eyes, and the figure pulls up!
Physical education with a baby
I did exercises with the child. For example, during the day when we played, I threw him up. Baby is fun, and I exercise.
When my baby crawled, I began to crawl with him. One more exercise was added, and the kilos slowly began to go away.
Sometimes I made a child rocker. Put him on his feet, and she lifted them, trying to hold longer over the floor.
It was with the help of these simple ways that my movement began back to a good figure. In the first two months of my struggle it took 4.5 kg. When I stopped breastfeeding, I diversified my methods. I will also talk about them sometime.
And how do you lose weight after giving birth? What methods were used when breast-feeding a child?
