Losing Weight After Having a Baby

I just had a baby and I know that breastfeeding will make me lose fat, but seriously I used to have abs and I don't have them now. I am so frustrated. I would like to know what can I drink or do in order to lose those extra pounds? I started my pregnancy at around 110lb and I finished it at 138lb. My baby is almost 4 months old and I'm now at 123lb, but my right weight is 110 pounds. I want to be back in shape. I'm drinking green tea; does it work?

The Ab Radical sold by Edison nation on-line works well for the tummy. It has a back and neck support and folds to a 4in box. I use it and it does work, I can carry it on the plane when I fly and if I need to stretch or do crunches I can pull it out, lie on the floor and do up to 100 without any problem. I would recommend it to anyone. Great product.

Losing Weight After Having a Baby

First off congrats on the little one! Second I have had the same problem and my son is 6 now. No need to be depressed or worry what a scale says because a having a baby changes so much in the mother's body it crazy. I had my obgyn check my thyroid and adrenal glands. Come to find out the problem was stress and trying to be super mom (the ex didn't help). I learned if I am healthy for myself and eat right and exercise I'd be happier and healthier for my son. I might not weigh what I did in high school, but I feel healthy. And that's all that matters is your health and happiness not what a scale says. (01/26/2011)

Weight loss is hard. If your weight is seriously hurting your happiness then I would suggest counting calories. Try going to caloriecount.com it's a helpful tool for keeping track of what you eat and making sure you're still nutritionally balanced. Also exercise just a little more. Walk just a little more when you have the opportunity. Sometimes it takes a while to see results, but don't let that discourage you.

Good luck! (01/26/2011)
