5. Stretching/yoga

Try yoga and some simple stretching exercises at home. If you can’t find a personal instructor, try downloading some instructional videos online. Stay away from those types of activities that make you run out of breath. Yoga is effective for new mothers because it is light and it builds muscle without tiring you out.

6. Be positive

Remove from your social circle all those toxic people. It’s alright to have a friend that points out how ugly or fat you look, but he/she must help and not just pinpoint your flaws. Postpartum mothers that are always hearing positive words of acceptance and encouragement have a greater chance of achieving a healthy weight and a positive body image.

7. Eat right and keep yourself hydrated

What’s good about breastfeeding is that you can eat just about any of your cravings without feeling guilty. As long as you are breastfeeding exclusively, you can increase your food intake. Eat healthy as whatever you eat transfer to your breastmilk. Eat regular meals in small portions throughout the day. It is also better to cook at home so you can choose healthy and fresh ingredients at every meal.

8. Be choosy – I know that you already have too much going on so you don’t have

    lots of time to plan your meals. Nevertheless, opt for lean meats instead of fatty foods    

    that can just leave you bloated. Munch on carrot sticks or cucumber slices in between                       meals. Feast on greens such as lettuce, cabbage, beans and legumes.

9. Water – Drink lots of water during the day to make you feel fuller longer. Keep yourself hydrated so that you’ll have plenty of breastmilk. Make sure that you drink around 10 big glasses of water daily. Do not resort to soda even during your cheat days.

Find an enjoyable exercise, something that you can do daily without feeling obliged. Accept yourself for all your extra bulges and flaws while keeping your eyes on your weight loss goal.
