Pregnancy for most women is a life changing experience. Seeing those 2 pink lines on your home pregnancy test kit or a confirmation by the doctor that 'congratulations!!.. You are pregnant starts a flurry of emotions. It’s a mixed feeling full of happiness, fear and even anxiety sometimes which culminates beautifully with your child being born. When you hold your child in your arms for the first time everything else seems to matter less.
There are so many new things that you see, experience and learn for the first time that the initial few months are spent in adjusting to a new life with your baby. Thereafter comes a phase when you realize that you have not only got transformed from a woman into a mother emotionally but you look different. Oodles of extra weight, a bloated tummy, a plus size starts bothering you. With an infant on breast feed and your self recovering from childbirth the question is how to lose those extra pounds?...and come back in shape.
This all happened with me too and when I weighed 58kgs in my first trimester, by the time my baby girl was born I weighed 78 kgs. It took me an year to come down to 61 kilos and this is what I did.
Seeing oneself fitting into one's pre pregnancy dresses is a joy which every new mother wants to experience. Believe me it is not unachievable. A strong will and a good plan is all you need.
