Garvin and Co. : Health, Fitness and Losing Baby Weight

My doctor told me that with all the extra poundage being carried around, you burn so many more calories, so I made sure to walk at least 30 minutes per day. On the topic of breastfeeding, I know that after I had Harper the last thing I wanted to do was shovel in food after I looked like a bloated, pillow-esque-slob-kabob BUT you need those calories in order to produce milk. These workouts are SO short, you can actually watch the clock during them & always be assured that there are only a few minutes left. If you are interested, I'd be happy to share some of the workouts on the blog. I don't have a recent pic, but this is the best I can do for before & after. The left is right around when I found out that I was pregnant, June 2011 & the right is exactly one year later in June 2012. I don't have the magic remedy for losing baby weight or staying in shape. Here are the realistic tips/rules that I can give on this topic: None of this will give you the same results as running. I know it seems like all healthy food sucks, BUT keep trying new things & find those one or two healthy snacks that you can tolerate. Funny how this always makes the list when it comes to losing weight, but I swear that it works. Go out of your way to find a water bottle that you LOVE & it will instantly be easier for you to guzzle that H 2 O. Now, I have a dedicated TV , with my weights under the dresser & I will SLEEP in my workout clothes so that I cannot make a single excuse in the morning to not workout. If nothing else, inspiring or reassuring to those first time moms that are pregnant now & worried that the baby weight will never go away. more...



Fat Chic Goes Slim : Post Pregnancy Weight Loss

SO I did pray for my weight loss and I took (no matter how small) steps towards my weight loss. Starting With the obvious - During pregnancy I did eat high calorie food that I carved for, so the first step was saying no to obvious high calorie foods. I was not allowed to exercise for 2 months so to get in the weight loss I had to concentrate on my diet. Whenever I want to get in the weight loss with less exercise this is what I do and it always works for me. There I was all prepared to lose weight and there they were all prepared to tempt me with the most delicious fattening foods in the world. I had tried it during my weight loss period and it did worked for me. I had severe craving for bottle gourd and for two months I ate bottle gourd raita with every single meal. How did the weight come down - I weighed myself the day I came back from the hospital and I was 78 kilos at that time. 72 kilos stayed with me for sometime and it was very difficult to break that plateau. I only opted for healthy food combined with some exercise (only after 2 months), so breastfeeding did played a major role in my weight loss. A woman does burn calories while breastfeeding, the only problem is that burning calories leads to hunger and if you are not careful with your calorie intake you can end up gaining weight instead of losing it. Where do I stand now with my weight,exercise and diet - Now my weight is between 68-69 kilos. more...



Weight Loss – Carrots ‘N’ Cake

When I was younger, I’d managed to maintain my weight of 130 pounds by being active. I belonged to the dance team and played intramural sports, so it wasn’t difficult for me to motivate myself to exercise. I continued to exercise almost every day, but it wasn’t enough—and my weight climbed to 153 pounds, which was too much for my 5-foot-4-inch frame. Looking at the physical proof, I was embarrassed by how much weight I had gained. One of the perks was a free membership, which was the motivation I needed to take control of my weight. I wasn’t eating unhealthy foods—I stuck with salads, turkey sandwiches, and stir-fry dishes—I was just eating too much of everything. Counting calories really helped me understand my overblown portion sizes and just how many calories I was consuming. Almost a year and a half later, in the summer of 2006, I finally reached my goal weight of 130 pounds. My weight loss didn’t happen overnight—in fact it took a pretty long time—but that was because I wasn’t “dieting.” Through trial and error and figuring out what worked best for me, I made lifestyle changes, which have stuck with me to today. For example, I almost always have oatmeal with nut butter and a piece of fruit for breakfast. more...

8 Tips for Losing Weight After Pregnancy

Now that your new baby is here, you have a lot to think about: when to feed her, what to do if she cries - and how to get rid of those extra pounds you packed on during your pregnancy . If you started out at a normal weight and gained the 25-35 pounds your doctor probably recommended, it shouldn't take you more than a couple of months to get back to your pre- pregnancy weight if you watch what you eat and exercise . If, on the other hand, you were overweight before your pregnancy or you put on more weight than your doctor advised, it could take much longer - up to a year - to get the weight off. Any baby weight you don't take off could stick with you for a long time. "It's very critical that you do get the weight off, because if you don't it has been associated with overweight and obesity 15 to 20 years later in life," says Debra Krummel, Ph D, RD, endowed professor in the University of Cincinnati department of nutrition . It should take at least that long to get back to their fighting weight." With that in mind, here are some tips to help you lose weight after pregnancy and fit back into your old jeans - whatever their size. more...



Losing The Baby Weight Scary Mommy

Oh man…I am past the baby making years (not by much, but past) and what I can’t STAND are those Mom’s who are like, “OMG! I pump 4 to 5 times a day, and I work out 6 days a week and I am still struggling to lose the weight after having my 3rd baby. All of my baby weight just came off within the first 5 months… I only eat when hungry (most times- with an occasional over indulgement – like when hubby insists on going to a buffet for dinner and all of the food looks sooo yummy!) I digress – So I am with my baby all the time, running my own business from home and I am very happy. Lost all my baby weight and I’m confident I can get the remaining pounds off. Eat when at a 3 and stop eating at the 5! I gave birth and was surprised that the 65 pounds didn’t come off. It was extremely out of my comfort zone but she just had a baby too so we were the 30 something hippos in class, out of shape and always talking about getting some margaritas after class. But I’m happy being me for the first time in years. With each of mine, I had to breastfeed and exercise 4-7 days a week, plus eat healthy and it took me 6 to 8 months to shed the weight. And even though I am back at my pre-prego weight, my body looks far from the 'same as' it did before. Getting out of bed, that was my sit-up of the day, and even that was more work-out than I wanted. I hadn’t gained much pregnancy weight and my husband assured me that once we brought the baby home and I got back to work, I could resume using the fitness center there at work… I never did understand the whole running after children thing and am so glad that I am not the only one. more...



The Realistic Skinny on Moms, Pregnancy

The Realistic Skinny on Moms, Pregnancy and Weight Gain. Moreover, the mania for “Mom-shells” - women who look like dynamite swiftly after pregnancy and delivery - obscures real concerns. Retaining pregnancy weight is a significant problem that - more crucial than how a mom looks in a bikini - contributes to the obesity epidemic among both women and children in our country. In a major study of more than 1,600 obese women, three in four gained excess weight, and, on average, still carried 40 percent of that weight a year after giving birth. In a recent study among 400 women in the early stages of pregnancy, only 42 percent said they received weight gain information. However, 22 percent of the overweight and obese women were advised to gain more weight than the advised under the Institute of Medicine’s guidelines. Women with a history of dieting are more prone to excessive weight gain, whether they are normal weight, overweight or obese when they become pregnant, according to a 2008 study of more than 1,200 women. Some women, often teenagers , do not gain enough weight during pregnancy. Bottom line, “you need to gain enough weight to provide nutrition for the fetus, but not an excess,” says my colleague Sarah Kilpatrick, MD, chair of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. This is a combination of the weight of the baby, placenta and amniotic fluid. In addition, women who regularly eat breakfast and lunch, and less snacks, are more successful in losing baby weight. more...



5 Secrets of My Post - Baby Weight Loss Success

But now I have a weight loss success story. There was a time when I frowned on weight loss success stories. And there was the assumption that it wouldn’t work for me because no one has been through what I’ve been through. My weight gain-and-loss story was a roller-coaster with more ups and downs than the Kraken at Sea World. Steep and Steady from the Start. But my grandmother had a daycare center in her home, and I learned quickly where the goodies were stashed. My weight started going up, peaking about 7 years at age 10 when combined with thick glasses and a perm, I was a rare find. Then I was lucky if they sold me a cold, hard, plain bagel and butter. But Baby Boy was different (as many people say happens.) I gained more weight and had a bigger baby. Down to the Finish. more...



Losing Weight After Pregnancy, and Getting Rid of Mommy

How do you go about losing weight after pregnancy? And I’m not talking about your pregnancy that happened 30 years ago. In this article, we’re going to discuss how to go about losing weight after pregnancy if you were pregnant less than a year ago. How to fix your diastasis recti (the abdominal muscles that separated during pregnancy) If this is your first time getting into strength training, you should check out the recording of my seminar, strength training for beginners . Those are the basics, but there are some specifics that apply during this period of your life, and we’ll go over those here: But one thing that’s fairly well-established is that breastfeeding helps you burn an extra 300-500 calories per day (depending on the size of your baby, and how much you feed him/her). There is an intricate play with the hormones during pregnancy, and in an ideal situation, the hormones balance themselves, and you lose the weight effortlessly (but maybe not quickly). Be Careful with Abdominal Exercises (And How to Fix the Diastasis Recti)  Whereas before pregnancy, you may have had your go-to abdominal exercises that would “flatten and tone” your stomach, you probably want to avoid those during the post-pregnancy period. And if you’re wondering “do I have diastasis recti?” the answer depends on how long it’s been since you were pregnant. In this book you will see that weight loss is about more than calories and willpower. You will see how important of a role your stress levels, digestive health and hormones play. more...



How To Lose Weight While Breastfeeding Without Losing

Last week,  Tracy Anderson  made some pretty provocative comments about women using pregnancy as an ‘excuse’ to gain weight, to eat whatever they want, and keep on the weight after having a baby.   While most of us in the real world cannot spend hours a day, or thousands of dollars, working to lose weight and tone our bodies after our babies are born, her body and exercise program is what she is KNOWN for. What I did appreciate was that Tracy mentioned that when you are losing weight while breastfeeding, you can’t forgo the nutritional aspect of the foods you eat and the calories you need to maintain your breastfeeding relationship. I’ve seen Tracy talk about her daily nutrition and this woman eats more than her fair share of nutrient dense foods, healthy fats, and protein, which are all going to keep up your milk supply while you exercise and gently shed those pounds after birth. Yet it is really important to make sure you are losing weight healthily so that your milk supply doesn’t end up slowly sinking away. All rights reserved by cemillerphotography.photoshelter.com Tips to Losing Pregnancy Weight While Maintaining Your Milk Supply: But, if you’re breastfeeding, it’s really important to focus on foods that are nutrient dense so you have the energy to care for your baby, to put towards all of your other responsibilities, and to exercise. Remember that producing milk takes a lot of your body’s resources and energy! The following foods will help you feel good so you have the energy to get through your day with flying colors. Third, your energy will remain more consistent throughout the day. Eat a diet that is rich in calcium and protein. Aim to eat the color of the rainbow each day when you are choosing fruits and vegetables. Yet if you find that your baby begins rejecting your milk, and you have been doing intense intervals (where your heart rate would be very high), then cut back a bit and see if that helps. more...



Jessica Alba’s ‘brutal’ post - baby weight loss tip

Celebrity moms probably deserve much of the credit (blame?) for our current obsession with the post-baby bounce back. The gorgeous star seemed to return back to her pre-baby weight in no time after the births of her daughters Honor and Haven, ditching her maternity wear for skinny jeans and barely-there bikinis. Thought to help contract the uterus and shrink the tummy, post-baby binding and corsets may seem like just another celebrity fad, but questions about the practice have been coming up among Baby Center moms for years. When I left the hospital both times with my boys I wouldn’t say I had my ‘flat’ stomach back but the large pooch I walked in with was a lot smaller than other girls walking out. Here’s what other famous moms have had to say about losing the baby weight: more...



8 Tips for Losing Weight After Pregnancy

"If you go back to eating healthy and eating for your hunger , most women find that the weight comes off pretty naturally," she says. Keep different snacks in the house to keep you from feeling hungry and give you energy throughout the day. Department of Agriculture's My Pyramid site can help you design a personalized eating plan based on your age, activity level, and weight loss goals. Choose foods that are heavy in the nutrients you need and light in calories and fat. Milk and yogurt are also super foods because they're high in the calcium you need to keep your bones strong. And don't forget the protein. They're good for you, and they'll keep you feeling full for longer. Whether breastfeeding can actually help you lose weight is still up in the air - some studies find that breastfeeding exclusively can help you return to your pre-baby weight faster, while others find no difference in weight loss between women who breastfeed and those who bottle feed. more...



Healthy weight loss after birth

These tips will help you to achieve and maintain a healthy weight: How many calories you need depends on your current weight, how active you are, and whether or not you are breastfeeding . It can be difficult to lose weight after having a baby, but try to lose the weight you gained during your pregnancy before you try for another baby . If you were a healthy weight in your first pregnancy and gain at least two BMI units before your next pregnancy, your baby is at risk after the birth too. Losing the extra weight you've gained after you've had a baby may also help you to manage your weight in the longer term, and to keep the weight off (Linne et al 2003). If you are breastfeeding , you should wait until you and your baby have got the hang of it before you start to lose weight. Breastfeeding may even help you to keep your weight off in the longer term (Bobrow et al 2012). As long as you feel healthy and ready, as a rough guide, you should aim to return your pre-pregnancy weight by the time your baby is about six months old (Amorim Adegboye et al 2013). If you put on a lot of weight during your pregnancy, it will take longer to come off. Weight management before, during and after pregnancy. more...



Weight loss after pregnancy : Tips from a specialist

Are you looking forward to getting on the scale after your baby is born? You might hope that you've literally worked your butt off having the baby. At first, you'll lose weight simply from the delivery of the baby and the placenta — as well as loss of amniotic fluid and blood. Within the next few weeks, you might also lose weight from all the fluid that used to be in your feet and ankles. It's also important to make conscious choices about what — and how much — you eat. Be aware of what you're eating and really think about it before you pop it in your mouth. So get some sleep, think about ways to include physical activity in your daily routine, and be thoughtful about what you eat. Remember, it took an entire pregnancy to gain the weight and it'll take time to lose it. more...



Honey We're Home : Losing the Baby Weight

Losing the Baby Weight. I think it’s because I haven’t reached my “goal” yet, but I decided instead that it might be worthwhile to talk about the process and celebrate my progress, even if I’m still not completely back to my pre-pregnancy body. In the six months before I got pregnant, I was working out with a trainer a couple times a week, doing a couple days of cardio, and eating pretty clean. This pic was taken in Vegas at the Bachelorette party. I’m about 5’1 and weigh about 106 pounds here. At the VERY beginning, I liked the changes to my body during pregnancy, i.e. ;)  But, then, for the first trimester of my pregnancy, I was exhausted. And even in the 2nd trimester when my energy returned, I still didn’t work out. I remember that all I felt comfortable in was sweatpants- the thin kind you can almost sleep in. And I still had 3 months to go! Here I am standing on our home’s foundation, wishing the house would hurry and get finished so we could move in! And here I am at the very END of my pregnancy, and after gaining about 55 pounds! Even with 25 pounds lost, I was somewhat horrified to discover that, at this point, I still looked pregnant. I read this book during my pregnancy, “The Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy”, that said regarding the weight loss, “nine months up, nine months down.”  But I didn’t want to believe that. more...

And if you're nursing, you need a bare minimum of 1,800 calories a day (most nursing moms need more like 2,000 to 2,700 calories) to nourish both yourself and your baby. Too-rapid weight loss can also release toxins that are stored in your body fat into the bloodstream – and into your milk supply. Weight loss of about a pound and a half a week is safe and won't affect your milk supply if you're nursing. Eat up – and take your time!

Losing extra weight before pregnancy lowers infant death

In all weight categories except the most obese, gaining less than or significantly more than recommended increased the risk of infant death. But here’s the kicker: Even when obese women gained the recommended amount of weight during pregnancy, their risk of infant death was still about twice as great as women who started pregnancy at a normal weight. “One in three women start pregnancy at an unhealthy weight, and more than half of women gain either too much or too little weight during pregnancy,” said lead study author Dr. “While more research needs to be conducted, we are hopeful that this study can be used to start a dialogue between physicians and women on the importance of not only gaining a healthy amount of weight while pregnant, but also reducing excess weight before they become pregnant as a potential way to improve infant survival.” “Our study highlights the importance of discussing weight loss with obese women prior to pregnancy because losing weight during pregnancy may increase the risk of her baby dying. Were you overweight before conceiving/did you gain more than the recommended amount of weight during pregnancy? more...

Judi Fox Blog : Losing the Baby Weight

Losing the Baby Weight. Notice that I didn’t say “How to Lose” the Baby Weight. I wish I could tell you exactly {HOW} to lose the weight, hold your hand, and be there for you ever step of the way. My only guess is that all the Christmas food and Baby Shower indulgences caught up with me and packed on the pounds near the end. The main thing that mattered was that I felt great and had very few pregnancy issues or concerns. After giving birth in February 2012 { Birth Story }, I mentally knew that the weight was there because I just nourished and carried a baby for 9 months. But I wanted the weight to be gone yesterday! The chart helped me see that I was making progress even though it didn’t feel like it and with a new baby I needed to keep things simple. In summary, the following things helped me Lose the Baby Weight: So the time of year helped me to lose the bulk of the weight during the spring, summer, and fall. But when I started googling “Losing the Baby Weight” the first and only thing that showed up was celebrity weight loss pictures and stories . That was one reason why I wanted to post my story because I am just a regular person who wanted to lose the weight. That was not the response I wanted to hear. But, please don’t give me the running around and forgetting to eat bull$#*. Hope the chart and story helps someone else struggling with losing the baby weight or I guess any kind of weight gain. more...



Losing the Baby Weight : The Truth About Shedding Pounds

It’s important to keep your expectations in check: Depending on the size of your newborn (usually between five and 10 pounds) and precise weight of your amniotic fluid and placenta (which you deliver at birth), most pregnant women can lose up to 12 pounds during delivery . Considering the average pregnancy weight gain is between 25 and 35 pounds, that’s a healthy start! What’s more, it stimulates the release of hormones that help shrink your uterus (and your post-baby belly). Once you feel ready to start a post-baby diet (and you’ve gotten the OK from your doctor), make sure you’re still eating enough calories. Your doctor can help determine exactly how many calories you should be eating, since the number will vary depending on your BMI before pregnancy and your activity level. Also remember that the less you weigh, the fewer calories your body needs — so you may need to adjust your calorie intake as you slim down. That said, it likely has nothing to do with being pregnant but is more related to changes in your diet and activity levels after baby is in the picture: Caring for a new baby leaves a lot less time to take care of yourself — especially as you struggle to cope with a lot more work and a lot less sleep! But while losing the last few pounds might be tough, diet and exercise really can get your body back to its pre-baby shape. No matter where you are on your post-baby weight loss journey, patience is the key. You need all the support you can get — so get your partner on board. Remember that it took you nine months to gain the weight, and slimming down will likely be as challenging as it was before you began to pack on pregnancy pounds. And even when the scale hits a number you like, you may find your body’s shape is somewhat different than it was before birth. That’s OK — and a great reason to splurge on some new clothes that flatter the new you! more...



Lose Baby Weight : What Worked For Me With Pictures

LOSE THE BABY WEIGHT. And it isn’t always vanity for the sake of what OTHER’S think – I just don’t like letting MYSELF down. Like most women, I worried about whether or not I’d look the same, whether I’d lose the baby weight, whether I’d be able to get into “those” jeans, and if I could somehow make stretch marks the “new black”. I think the biggest challenge with each up and down cycle was trying to come to grips with the fact that I would never get my old body back. …So I just went ahead and got a better one! Losing The Baby Weight: What worked for me. I had two healthy pregnancies and was fortunate enough to continue for the entire 42 weeks. Having the support and help of Travis has been CRUCIAL in finding time to workout.   Everyday, when Travis gets home from work, he watches the kids and lets me go to the gym. When you take care of a newborn all day, it is quite refreshing to be able to leave the house, clear your mind, and SWEAT.

How Chrissy is Losing Weight After Pregnancy - LA Fitness

After nine noble months of pregnancy, it wasn’t long after her delivery that Chrissy was ready to have her old body back. So she began to develop a plan to get back her pre-pregnancy weight, but first she had to consider the limitations that came with her new life. Before she could exercise, her body needed time to recover from the strain of pregnancy and giving birth. “I decided that if I could not exercise then I would have to be extra careful of the foods I ate,” said Chrissy. Writing down her food means that she has to revisit the times when she eats something that she knows is contradicting her goal.

Even though she was given the “okay” to exercise from her doctor, finding time to do so has proved to be more of a challenge than she had expected.

Losing the baby weight - He and I

*Disclaimer: I don’t usually talk about weight and fitness here on the blog, so I’m being brave today posting this! I knew that it was healthy and necessary for bringing a beautiful baby into the world. I wasn’t in the best of shape when I got pregnant, but tried to be somewhat active during pregnancy (keyword: somewhat :) Although I struggled with being much larger than I ever had been, I was so happy to have sweet Ellie come into our family. The day Ellie was born – September 20, 2012. I was still in the process of recovering (dang episiotomy!), so we would try to go out for a walk everyday, but that was about it.

I learned to listen to my body and eat for nourishment, not because I was bored. ;) I also have so much more energy during the day!
