How To Lose Post Pregnancy Weight … Fast!
With Ethan I lost my post pregnancy weight quite quickly. I was 40kg before I got pregnant and just before delivery I was 55kg. Okay, maybe I did not lose those weight as fast as I thought I did. It was just that back then I wasn’t active in social media hence I did not need to meet people often so I can just hide in my shell until I get back my pre-pregnancy figure.
With Ayden is a totally different story. I was 45kg when I got pregnant (I was heavier due to some medication which I haven’t got about to tell) and the week before my water bag broke 3 weeks before my EDD I was already 60kg. I did not know how much I weigh when I was admitted though. It’s 7 weeks after I delivered Ayden and I’m still no where near my ideal weight. I am now 48kg and have been stuck at this weight for a couple of weeks already.
I delivered both Ethan and Ayden via caesarean section. With Ayden, though my water bag broke, I wasn’t dilated hence the c-sec. You know how it is with c-sec. We can’t start exercising at least until after 6 weeks and that also depends on how well our wound is doing. Sit-ups is definitely a no-no at this stage making it harder to get a flat tummy.
Darling kept telling me to take it easy and not be paranoid with my weight. He said if he is okay with it why am I so worked out over it? Why??! Because I need to face people that’s why! I made my first public appearance immediately after my confinement during Nuffnang’s Tweat Festival and already I have many people commenting how chubby I am still :(
I’m watching my diet. I need to eat as I am breastfeeding but I am cutting down on carbs whenever possible. I take lots of protein ie fish, chicken, milk.. I also take lots of vege and fruits and drink up to keep me hydrated.
At week 7, I am starting some light exercise and my trainer is no other than Ayden himself. Here’s our exercise routine:
True enough, this exercise isn’t working. We are BOTH still chubby! LoL! Well, at least for one of us, being chubby is a good sign! Haha! :D
