‘More’… always not a good option?

I see lot of Women retaining back their ‘pregnancy’ weight even after delivery and they also gain some extra kilos every year… we have accepted a baby would change our life for better and welcoming another new member in our family is a extra ordinary experience… with this change our priorities would alter for certain extent but there would not be any major difference as such. Then why putting on extra kilos? Knowingly or in a vein this weight would make you remember you have gained the same during the pregnancy… apart from bringing health problems, this extra weight would bring that ‘extra’ stress to you… if you wish to not take a chance with all these, then take some time out, concentrate on losing weight;

Are these your obstacles from Exercise?

Exhaustion and fatigue -- These are common after giving birth, especially if you're breastfeeding, which can deplete your energy. Be aware of your energy levels, and only do what you can handle.

An Erratic schedule -- For the first few weeks and months after you give birth, your baby's feeding schedule may change constantly, making it tough to follow any kind of normal routine.

Time constraints -- You may find that you only have a few minutes here or there for exercise. If that's the case, take advantage of the time you have, and don't be afraid to spread your workouts throughout the day.

Mood swings -- As your hormones get back to normal, you may have some ups and downs, perhaps even dealing with postpartum depression. Exercise may help your mood, but you should talk to your doctor about the best way to handle your situation.

Exercise can actually help with some of these issues, and there are ways to make it easier to fit exercise into your life:

Split your workouts -- Short workouts spread throughout the day are just as effective as continuous workouts.

Keep it simple -- If you have a few minutes while the baby sleeps, take some laps around the house or trips up and down the stairs. Exercise doesn't have to be complicated, it only has to get you moving.

Find support -- Talk to friends, family or neighbors about how they've handled having a baby and staying in shape. You'll be amazed at the creative ideas out there.

Focus on what's important -- It's easy to get stressed out about losing weight, especially after inhabiting a body so different from the one you've been used to for most of your life. You will get back to normal, even if your body isn't exactly the same. Give yourself permission to enjoy your baby and your body, even if it's not what you hoped it would be.
