How to lose baby weight without sweating it out the gym every day. Here’s my story.
I am now one year postpartum. It’s about time I get back into shape. Full disclosure: I have lost all (and then some) of my baby weight without much effort. I know, I know. Some of you might hate me. But somehow it happened. It didn’t happen overnight, but it all came off. So here’s my story. I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I was about 10 pounds above my normal weight the summer before I got pregnant. I wasn’t working out and somehow it just happened. I started my P90X journey, which had worked for me before, in September. I found out I was pregnant in October. I continued it for another month or so, but my OB was not fond of that kind of workout at all. So I switched to running (until about 28 weeks or so) and barre. I did barre three times a week up until 38 weeks and I loved it. I really feel like it helped me throughout labor and most importantly my recovery. I felt great afterwards, and planned to start working out at at 6 weeks postpartum, but, yeah…life happened. Luckily, I was dropping pounds easily (Yeah breastfeeding!!). It definitely didn’t “melt off”, and I hit some plateaus but by around the 5 months mark I was back at my ideal weight again.
