It seems like from since the beginning of time we have been finding ways to balances eating and weight. As women (no matter the age) childbirth, breastfeeding, surgeries and a combination of these things turns into an uphill battle to maintain our ideal weight and be truly comfortable and healthy inside and out.
Balance is very key before beginning any set regimen. I find these dieting commercials and books so annoying because there is no SET way to lose post pregnancy pounds. This leaves most of us drained and confused as to how to eat enough to be full and satisfied without worrying about what the scale will say later and sayings like “A Moment on the lips is a lifetime on the hips,” don’t make it any better.
While our mates might not mind the extra lumps and bumps, we can sometimes take a stroll down memory lane and find ourselves stuck in an identity crisis. Why can’t the pounds just melt away?
I don’t profess to be a guru, however I can only tell you what worked for me. A bottom heavy slim build with a mid-high metabolism. Be creative and play with it! If you find that you get no results, take the time to retain a few of the eating practices for your greater health. Try it the first month, then 3, then 6.
