3 Lose Weight Fast Tips for Moms

Whether you are a new mom or have been a mom for more than a year now, to lose weight fast after pregnancy is probably one of your many goals. Ever since you had a baby, your body is not the same. The added inches on some parts of your body such as the breasts and buttocks are good; they make you feel more voluptuous. It’s the added inches on the waistline and thighs, however, that makes for a completely different story.

Do not say “If only…” You can! When it comes to losing weight, there are no ifs and no buts. So get your head in the game and follow these 3 tips to lose weight fast.

Lose Weight Fast by Getting the Family to Exercise.

There’s nothing more motivating that not having to be motivated. That statement may sound confusing but it simply means: a motivation that stems from you naturally, without having to convince yourself or talk yourself to it, is the best feeling of all. And nothing can give you this natural positive feeling than your family.

Play with your kids outdoors and cultivate your kids’ interest in sports. Get your feel-good hormones active by going to an open field and playing catch. You can also play a game of tag to shed off those stubborn pounds. Even a simple yet regular walk with your kids can help you lose weight effortlessly.

Eat Healthy and Don’t Eat Plenty

Two important rules to live by when it comes to losing weight—eat the right kind of food and eat the right amount of food. Simple rules, yet often overlooked.

As a mother, it is difficult to watch the amount of food you eat. Oftentimes, you find yourself finishing off whatever leftovers your kids have. Your best way to go around this is to make sure you just prepare the right portions. If, even after you have considered portion sizes, you still have leftovers; do not let the thoughts of hungry people around the world prevent you from disposing food. At any rate, if you can’t bear to throw it, you can always save it for later.

Also, be conscious of the quality of food you prepare. As a mom, you probably have your hands full most of the time. As a result, you may see this as a hindrance in preparing nutritious home-cooked meal. The convenience of microwaveable food or fast food is always hard to resist. Well—Resist! After all, these foods are not only bad for your weight, but it is also bad for your kids’ health too. There are meals that don’t require long preparation time. With a little bit of dedication and a whole lot of loving, you’ll find a way to cook healthy for you and your family.

Always Have Healthy Snacks Available

This tip holds particularly true when you’re on a trip. Whether the trip is as short as a trip to a nearby park or as long as a trip to visit relatives, always have healthy snacks or foods handy. It is common for most families on a trip to just swing by a drive-thru to get food. To avoid unhealthy food and unnecessary calories, never leave your house without nutrient-filled snacks. These may include fresh fruits, vegetable trays, nuts, organic cereals for munching and many more. Also, for drinks, make sure to bring along water or flavored water instead of sodas.

Aiming to maintain the right weight is not just all about looking good; it is also about feeling good as well. To be able to lose weight fast, you have to incorporate a can-do attitude.  A positive attitude is one of the factors that separate success from failure. Remember: You are a mom, a super mom!

After having 4 children I had great success getting back to my pre-baby weight using the Fit Yummy Mummy program.

There is nothing in the world you can’t do!
