If you had been able to maintain your weight within the ideal range before you got pregnant, if your BMI (Body Mass Index) was just right for your gender, height, and weight back then, but you unexpectedly gained a lot of weight when you were pregnant, there’s no need to worry.
It is possible to experience post pregnancy weight reduction. However, like any major undertaking, getting rid of extra weight is not something that will happen overnight.
Remember, it took nine months (assuming your baby is full term) to develop those excess pounds. So, in order to properly lose weight, you have to condition your mind to accept that postnatal weight loss won’t happen over just a few weeks either.
Proper vs Improper Weight Loss
The weight loss industry is a burgeoning business, globally, not just in Singapore.
What makes the whole situation sad is that many shortcuts to losing weight are promised, which while tempting, usually involves unethical means or unhealthy methods to get rid of unwanted pounds.
These include “miracle diet pills” and much-touted crash diets that promise weight loss of 10 to 15 pounds per week, a rate that’s not healthy, by any standards.
There are proper and improper ways of losing weight. Undertaking a personal training program, coupled with a sensible, nutritious diet can make the most impact on your postnatal goals to lose weight.
But you can’t do it on your own, nor should attempt to do so.
The healthiest and most effective way to remove post pregnancy excess fat for new moms would be to consult a personal trainer and cooperate with your trainer in coming up with a personalized plan to get you fit, full of energy, and more capable of handling your role as a new mother.
It doesn’t even really matter whether or not you were a part of the huge workforce of Singapore. A lack of time should never be an issue.
To effectively get rid of excess fat that has accumulated in various parts of your body during pregnancy, new moms need to be determined to meet their goals.
Here are some tips to help ensure that your determination won’t waver.
