How I lost 60 Pounds Post Pregnancy in 9 Months
I am trying to answer my best here. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask and I will keep adding them to this Q&A Section.
Q: My Pre-Pregnancy, Post-Pregnancy & Current weight?
Weight Pre-Pregnancy – 120 lbs
Weight Post-Pregnancy – 182 lbs
Weight Current – 120 lbs
Q: My workout routine?
Five to six days a week. 60 minutes of cardio (2 days), 60 minutes of strength training (3 days), 1 day Yoga or Pilates.
Q: My advice?
Watch what you eat during pregnancy, more weight you put on, the more you will have to lose! I did indulge into delicious cakes and pies from time to time, I would say I had 3 carrot cakes during 9 months and fast food few times but for us fast food means we go to wholefoods or other organic restaurants and dine at their food courts. My main snacks were still hummus and cakes, lots of dates, fresh fruits, smoothies and granola bars. I do not drink sodas, alcohol etc. and stick to only water, herbal teas, coconut water, homemade smoothies and natural fruit juices. I would also advise doing 10,000 steps a day if possible. Lastly, we all know good food and exercise is what makes person healthy and fit but most important is to have that attitude. I always remember one thing in mind while getting into weight loss that it will take me only 1 month and I will be into routine. Once I complete 1 month, I say to myself that it will take me only 3 months before I and everyone will see the difference. Once I complete those 3 months, i am already in a routine and that goes a long way! So point is whichever way it motivates you, you MUST NOT give up! After all its one life and we must make most of it 🙂
