Weigt loss diary - Part II

After I've lost 3kgs two weeks after delivered Kaith (total weight gained is 10kgs), I've managed to shed off another 3kgs. Now my weight stands at 56kg, which means I still have to lose another 4kgs in order to regain my pre-pregnancy weight (52kg). I'm quite satisfied with my progress and I know that breastfeeding has definitely helped in burning off my calories....

Although overall I don't look fat, but I realised that my tummy has become so flabby after this pregnancy. I think exercise is the best & only way to tone up the muscle but then I wonder when I would have time & willing to start doing some sit-ups? Haha LOL

Hi K---sit ups---they are the exercise that you have to work yourself up to do (smile). But you are right, exercise is the way to lose and firm.

Well done Karen. I think by the time Kaith 4 mths you will be able to return back to pre-pregnancy weight.

Karen,
I also agree breastfeeding help to lose weight. Plus busy working life (office and at home), I myself left only 50kgs after 4 mths, only 2 kgs to go back to my prepregnancy weight (48kgs).
Same like you, my tummy is also the problem area, flabby. I applied firming and shaping gel day and night, still yet to see any result. Excercise? I doubt if there is any time for me to do it...

Sometimes we tend to be very conscious with our weights, especially with our figures after pregnancy. But however, there are always remedies for that, as long as the willingness to loss weight is there, you'll sure have your ideal figure back.
