It seems to be a never ending battle. You gain weight, you lose weight, you gain weight…you know the drill. When you have kids, things expand easily, but the trouble is, they don’t shrink as easily. After having two kids, I can tell you that losing weight is one of the hardest things. I found after both pregnancies my secret weapon was breastfeeding. It shed the pounds quicker than anything else. The trouble is after you’re done breastfeeding, the weight starts to creep back.
That’s when you hit the gym hardcore. I try to go as often as I can, but it’s hard when you have kids. They have those kids’ club babysitter things, but I don’t completely trust them to be honest with you! I know a lot of other moms who turn to Weight Watchers, while some try other means. Whatever you do, it’s always best to check in with your doctor too. Sometimes he or she can also get you on the path to becoming a slimmer momma. Here’s my advice, for what it’s worth…After having kids, I’ve come to realize that my body will never be the same again, and I’m okay with that. As long as I’m healthy for myself and my family, the size 4 jeans can stay on the rack.
