But despite having these temptations around, you can still lose weight
as a mom, and achieve the weight loss for yourself. Your family need
to support you in your goals. Maybe the family needs to eat more
fruit, especially as snacks. Cut down on the sugary treats in the
house, fill the fridge with washed fruit and vegetables, so that
whenever you are feeling peckish, you can easily access a snack.
Grapes are good to have around, and a few grapes, or other fruit with
a little cottage cheese makes for a good nutritious snack.
If you have these healthy snacks available, it makes eating them much
easier - it becomes as easy to pull out washed grapes as it is to pull
out the cookie packet! And we all know which is healthier.
Along with health goes fitness, and it is important for moms to focus
on fitness too, whether it is power walking with your baby in a
stroller, or weight lifting your baby (safely), or doing a workout at
home while your baby is napping. Whatever works for you. The main
thing is to commit to exercise as regularly as possible, even if you
can only manage 10 minutes each day, that is better than not doing any
In time, you will feel good about your fitness workouts, and you'll
realize that you have accomplished a level of fitness you didn't have
before. This is a good feeling, and it means you have done something
for yourself, you are separate from your baby, even though it might
not seem like it at times!
Keep those workouts going - you're going to need to be fit for chasing
your baby, once he/she becomes mobile! And when they start playing on
play grounds, you may find a quick sprint is needed to extricate them
from some situation.
Yes, it really is good to feel good about yourself. It leads you to be
a happier, more content mom, and your family, although they will not
know it, will appreciate that. So, get fit, or fitter, exercise and
eat healthily, for your sake, and your family's! Good Luck!
