How Did You Lose Your Baby Weight?

Photo by Kat240

My youngest is 14 months old, and I'm just now starting to recognize my body again. My strategies are, as you can see, hardly earth-shattering: I eat less and move around more. It has taken me a lonnng time.

How are other CafeMoms shedding their pounds? A recent baby weight thread in the After Pregnancy: Babies and Toddlers group was very popular about this topic.


Here are some highlights:

From charmelin: "I stopped drinking soda and coffee and rode my bike 2 or 3 times a week."

From MyTwoAngels0608: "Use playtime with your baby as a small work out. They love it. I do leg bends and hold the little one and use him as a weight. Also, I do arm presses above my head and bicep curls with him... lol! He loves this!"

From CatRose15: "I found a website called FitDay that you put in what you ate for the day and it breaks down how many carbs, fats and protiens you ate - what ones are bad and how much vitamins you are getting in you - and then I have adjusted my eating habits based on the reports - I started eating more fish, tofu and hummus to increase my protien intake without increasing my fat intake to much and I have cut down on how much bread I eat."

More good tips are always welcome. dumbbell
