Burn the Baby Fat Permanently - The First Steps

Jul 19, 2008
Nature has a way of teaching us. It's normal to gradually gain weight over 9 months when you are pregnant. And logic would dictate that losing pregnancy weight should also be a gradual process. But thanks to the media, this logic is ignored and Moms are looking to lose weight after giving birth in the fastest way possible. Nature points to health and wellness and the media points to the Celebrity Mom. Mom, you are looking in the wrong direction.

It is hard to ignore the various diet or diet pill products blatant claims and promises of weight loss with the greatest of ease without any effort, diet change or exercise. It is also disturbing to see how the technological age has accelerated the evolution of human slothfulness. And to know that because of this, many people ascribe to these highly questionable products. Yes, it would be a wonderful thing for a busy Mom to just take a pill and burn the baby fat but convenience doesn't necessarily make us any healthier. Facing a personal challenge like losing pregnancy weight the healthy way can only make you stronger as a person and a Mother in ways that could very well surprise you.

Lose the Weight by Loving You

To truly love yourself is easier said than done especially when you are a busy Mom. Most of your energy and love gets poured into your loved ones. But if your goal is to lose pregnancy weight fast, then you have to start loving yourself.

Love will help you to be intrinsically motivated to reach your goal. To put it simply, you have to be able to discipline, motivate, forgive and celebrate you as you take the challenging road to get a lean and toned body. A little love can take you all the way.

Face your Fears

If your self-confidence is low and your post pregnancy weight is high, it high time you get back into shape. Going about it the healthy way will require, as they say, "no pain, no gain". As a Mother you have faced and overcame many challenges running a household. But this one is personal. You have to courageously fight the temptation to procrastinate, give up or cheat with a quick-fix diet pill to trim your tummy. If you can readily cope with the responsibilities of being a Mom for your family, then why not cope with getting fit and healthy for you?

A Good dose of Honesty

Honesty is best especially when you have decided to lose weight after giving birth permanently by adapting to a healthier lifestyle. Being honest with yourself will help you to realize that you have to be patient with seeing results and that your weight loss will happen gradually. You will also be able to set realistic goals to trim your tummy and get back into shape. You will be mentally prepared to face the challenge to lose pregnancy weight fast, head on.

Look inside yourself

Professionals in the health and fitness industries all conduct some form of personal questionnaire about their clients. Your personal "portfolio" helps them to highlight your strengths and weakness and from that they will be able to better assist you on your goal to trim your tummy and get fit. Likewise, you can be your own fitness/lifestyle coach by getting to know yourself. Start by reflecting on your strengths and weaknesses that can either help or harm you shed the pounds. A little one-on-one with yourself can help your quest be successful.

Going beyond your physical appearance to address the entire person is the healthy way to lose the pregnancy weight for good. Love can conquer anything and pregnancy weight is no exception. So, by loving yourself you will be able to make the shift to living a healthier lifestyle. And knowing who you are will help you to avoid the pit falls that can set you back and to acknowledge the blessings that can propel you forward.
