Jul 2, 2008
Today is the day to lose your pregnancy weight and get your life back in order. As human beings we need to be reinforced as to why we have to do things. So here are 5 reasons to get you off your butt and on to living life.

Life is what you make it. So if you are miserable with your current situation, why not make the necessary changes to wellness? This does not mean banking on the false promises of quick-fix diet pills and diets that are out there. And it doesn't mean joining your local gym in hopes of spending hours on the treadmill to trim your tummy. It does mean that you have to realize that this task requires a change in lifestyle and that change to wellness begins with you.

1. Pregnancy weight loss starts and ends with you.

Choosing the healthy way to shed the pounds is a very good step in the right direction but the success of your efforts and results is purely dependent on you. You have no one else to blame when your efforts of losing the baby fat is abandoned due to self-sabotage or put on the back burner. You have to find a means of motivating yourself inwardly to sustain you through the "bad" days. A lifestyle program can guide you in setting realistic goals and expectations to achieve success for the long term.

2. Respect yourself.

As any busy Mom would agree, days seem to fly by and before you know it, you are overweight Mom with low self-esteem. It's easy to get lost in translation between your pre-baby and post-baby existence. Mom, you need to take care of you. This means that you will have to find the time to lose your tummy and get back into shape. You can learn how to have a balance in your life with a lifestyle program. All work and no play will make for an unhappy-can't-lose-the-weight Mom. A Mom who feels good about herself inside and out results in a happy family.

3. Lose Inches off your Body

Moms are not as fashion savvy as they would like to be out of practicality of dealing with children but mostly out of embarrassment of being overweight. But who wants to live in Sweat pants or Mom jeans forever? The type of strength training that reduces your waistline and tones your muscle is called resistance training. You can burn the baby fat and become your own goddess by doing strength training. Resistance training re-builds your muscle into toned muscles and it doesn't require a lot of your time.

4. Boost your Energy.

Tired of being tired? When you exercise and eat right, your body will have more energy. Also, just psychologically knowing that you are looking and feeling better, can contribute to increasing your energy and putting you in a better frame of mind. A proper diet and healthy approach to life will keep you energized to maintain a balanced life and keep the weight off.

5. Reduce Stress.

The unpredictability of life makes stress inevitable. You can reduce stress in your life when you life a healthy lifestyle. This includes eating right, getting enough rest and exercise and spending quality time with your loved ones and yourself. Also learning skills to cope with certain stresses can help to make life more manageable. As we all know, reducing stress will contribute to your wellness and that of your family's.

Losing pregnancy weight will require that you commit to the task and to do so for the long run by changing to a healthier lifestyle. The right lifestyle program can guide you in losing the baby fat and becoming the healthier for it. You can have everything only if you let it happen. As Henry Van Dyke says, "Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love, to work, to play and to look up at the stars". He sums up all the reasons for you to re-claim a healthy lifestyle and live your life.
