His & Hers
Well rather mine and his. Trying to get my post baby body back is proving to be a huge challenge that I am willing to take.
3months on and I am still not at my desired weight or size which at times is depressing; however I’ve decided to take each week as it comes and not push myself too hard.
I initially wanted to jump back straight into gym but with exclusively breastfeeding it is difficult to fit in as many gym sessions as I want to attend.
I decided to start with my diet, as I am breastfeeding any fad diets would affect my supply that will be passed on to bubs. So i thought the easiest way would be to completely cut out the junk and not to eat carbs. The not eating carbs is proving a real heart quincher as everything yummy is a carb.
For breakfast I eat a high in fibre and energy granola topped with chai seeds with fat free natural yogurt with a cup of Neuners (breastfeeding tea).
For lunch I would have a glass of Oat milk (trying to stay away from cows milk) along side lots of fruit. If I’m feeling adventurous I’ll blend it into a smoothie.
I’ve decided to weigh myself every Friday to see if there are any noticeable changes with this no carbs diet and I am seeing results.
Week 1: 190.1 lbs
Week 2: 186.2 lbs
Week 3: 185.6 lbs (current weight)
My current size is a lot more curvy and I am embracing those motherly curves just working on getting toned and tighter. I mean after all I did just carry a whole human being for 10 months.
Just a reminder to all new moms, don’t look at your post partum body as shameful, embrace your new bodily additions. I myself see them as a constant reminder that my body is a wonderful creator of life.
