How to lose that extra weight with your kids

Ladybug on a leaf.

I know a lot of moms who want to lose some weight.

You will love this, I’ve done it and it really works. I’m against any kind of diet. In some point, I decided that I want to lose the extra weight of three pregnancies. The first thing is to find your ideal-realistic weight, so I saw my family Dr. and consulted her on my ideal goal. I had to lose 10 pounds and keep it that way.

I started very slow and every day tried to be on top of my choice of food. I ate everything even I had chocolate, but the way I did it was the key to success. I just had couple of bites less than my usual portion on each meal, or tried to have rich salads for my lunch. If I liked to have a chocolate or chips or any snacks of that kind, I would check the calorie of it and had half or a small piece of that snack. The important thing is that I enjoyed eating all the time and consciously made myself not to feel guilty of having something nutty.

The second step was to burn some calories. I’m not a gym person and frankly, with two kids under three years, I don’t have the time. So I started walking, just walking for about 2 hours once or twice a week. I would put my kids in their double stroller and just walked in the neighborhood.

I had wonderful result; it’s been 6 months since I started. I’ve lost 8 pound in the first 2 months, then I took it a little lighter but I’m still losing weight, lost another 4 pounds since then.

I hope this help all other busy moms who want to have it all, enjoy their kids and lose that extra weight.
