When to start thinking about getting your body back in shape?

 

Women should not dive into crash diets or extreme workouts immediately after giving birth. You need to give time for your body and mind to heal. You can start with dieting only after at least six weeks post giving birth.

However, you can start doing exercises within weeks of delivery, depending on your mental preparedness.

Getting a Facelift & Tummy Tuck

 

There are chances you have put on a lot of weight, and your skin has started sagging. Undoubtedly, you are missing your 24 inches jeans and the glow on your face.

Getting a facelift and tummy tuck are some of the things you can do to get back in shape and look fabulous.

 

No More Saggy Breasts

 

Do you remember the perky breasts before marriage? It is possible that after giving birth, your breasts have become saggy and out of shape. With a breast lift, all your problems will come to an end.

Make sure you indulge in a telephone conversation with the clinic before opting for the procedure.

 

The calorie cuts, a.k.a dieting!

 

You might get tempted to reduce your calorie intake after giving birth. But it is detrimental to both your health. Since you are nursing your child, it will also harm the healthy development of the baby. You are supposed to take around 1800-2000 calories a day while breastfeeding. Besides, breastfeeding itself is a calorie-burning activity and will help you lose some of the fat gained during pregnancy. Try to be gentle to yourself, avoid taking crash diets instead aim to lose about one pound a week. Pregnancy brings a lot of changes to the female body. Focus on getting fit sustainably rather than trying to lose weight fast.

 

Shredding those extra pounds

 

The weight you have accumulated over the months of pregnancy will take time to go away. You can start walking after days or weeks of delivery. Taking the baby out for a stroll is a relaxing activity as well. It will also ease postpartum depression if you are suffering from any. Nowadays, there are some simple exercises available online that you can by supporting the stroller. Once you feel you are ready, you can start doing workouts focusing on your core. 

You can transition from simple exercises you did during pregnancy and slowly return to your old workout regimen. It should ideally take you around four to six months to go back to your old routine. Experts opine that you can start running after eight weeks. Immediately after giving birth, the hormone’ Relaxin’ will be present in the blood for a few weeks, and it makes your joints prone to injury. Thus, avoid running or performing strenuous activities during this period. 

The Takeaway 

 

Even after taking all these precautions, you must look out for signs like excessive bleeding, exhaustion from mild exercise, and other odd symptoms. If they persist for long, you should immediately seek medical help.

With a little effort and perseverance, you can bounce back to your old body shape. It may not happen over weeks like in the celebrities as they get more expert care during and after pregnancy. In a matter of few months, you can wear those killer outfits you had to trade for maternity wear and feel all the more confident once again!
