I stepped on the scale after giving birth and was so excited that I had already lost 15 pounds. That was before I realized it was the baby and placenta I had lost, and that this trend was not going to continue. Now, more than three months later, the number on the scale still hasn’t budged.
I worked extra hard to stay fit during my pregnancy. Then the bed rest and recovery period, not to mention caring for a newborn, knocked me off my routine. So now any muscle I had has turned to mush after three months of doing nothing.
Falling off the exercise wagon is not new for me, as it happens every year. And then I get back into it a couple months later. But this spring I’m having a harder time getting back in gear. It doesn’t help that whenever little Franci cries for more than a minute, my stress level climbs and I reach for whatever sweet treat I have lying around.
So I’m turning to you, dear readers, for help. What did you do to loose the baby weight? I need some new tips!
