Postpartum Weight Loss: Motivation Tips to Lose the Baby Weight

Posted Mar 24 2010 10:56am

To Sara of Fit by Sara: “I want to lose the baby weight , but am so tired, I have no motivation.  Do you have any tips to help me get started?”

From Fit by Sara: “Having a new baby can take a lot of energy out of you.  Exercise will actually give you more energy and improve your mood.  Start with baby steps, such as taking a short walk.  Even 5 min. is more than you’ve been doing, so set your goal to walk 5 min. 5 days the first week.  The next week add on 5 more, eventually working your way up to 40-45 min.. After you exercise take a moment on how good you feel after exercising.  Note the difference in your mood and energy level.  After just 2 short weeks of exercising 3-5 x per week for 35-45 min. you will notice that your body will actually crave exercise!  So start small, just 5 min. a day and soon you’ll be on your way to weight loss , muscle tone, and a better you!” -Sara Holliday MFT, CPT
