Lose Weight in 2 Weeks After Childbirth

Lose weight in two weeks after pregnancy! Are you kidding me, who wouldn't want that? Don't get me wrong, child birth is an amazing event. For nine or so months, your body is going through beautiful changes. You're filling out in places that you didn't know you had and things are looking rather nice. Then you go through a few hours of intense labor and the next thing you know, you are looking down at your bundle of joy. Congratulations!

After a while though your next thought is "how the heck am I going to lose this weight!" or "I hate the way my body looks". You then break out the over-sized clothing to cover those parts you want to avoid. For some of you ladies, perhaps you're carrying baby weight but your baby is grown, yikes! This article will provide a few very doable tips for effective weight loss in 2 weeks after pregnancy or for some of you, years after your pregnancy.

Make yourself a priority

The first thing you should do is make it a priority. Now those may be fighting words to some. "What do you mean, make it a priority? I have a baby to take care of". Yes I understand that and that's exactly why you should make it a priority. Women are notorious for placing themselves on the bottom of their "to do" list and often times their not on there at all. Things don't become dynamic until they become specific.

Get Active

Now that you've made losing weight a priority, consult with your physician and pick an activity that you will enjoy. You can start out walking especially if you haven't worked out in a while. Walking is great and you can do it with your baby. My top pick is belly dancing even for beginners. Belly dancing is a fantastic and sensuous workout that will get you burning serious calories. You can either find a class which will allow you to get some "Me" in addition to your workout or you can follow along to a dvd at home.

Get Some Rest

Sleep when your baby sleeps. Has anyone told you that? You may be tempted to over look this piece of advice but let me tell you that the dishes and laundry will get done when they get done. When that baby of yours is lying down to rest, that is your cue to lie down and rest. Sleep is essential for your body to function both physically and mentally and is an integral part of your weight loss plan.

Good Eats

The third thing you should do is make sure you are eating well. You may have distant memories of eating an entire pizza, pints of Caribbean coconut ice cream or a bucket of fried chicken...maybe that was just me? I understand the irrational cravings during pregnancy. However, if you want to lose weight in 2 weeks after pregnancy then you need to eat small portions of nutritious meals. Quinoa is a highly nutritious grain that can be made in large quantities and stored for quick access and can be paired with just about any protein.

Fat Burning and Cleansing System

If you want to lose weight 2 weeks after childbirth then you should rid your body of toxins that have been building up for years. Where do the toxins come from? Everywhere! The air you breathe, the water you drink, your cleaning products, even the foods you eat. A toxic body cannot function at its optimal level and will hold on to weight. Some people see or hear the words "cleanse" and they usually think colonic, well that's not at all what I mean. With a fat burning and cleansing system you are still eating food, flooding it with nutrients but you are also flushing your body to help it get rid of toxins.

Can you lose weight in 2 weeks after pregnancy? Yes, the thing to keep in mind is that everybody is different and so you can't compare one person's weight loss to the results that you want to see. Don't be hard on yourself and don't have unrealistic goals. What's most important is that you are healthy and if you are consistent, the weight loss will happen over time.
