What happens to our bodies?

Postby Littlegirl » Sat Jun 14, 2008 3:47 pm

Hi there,

I think i asked this question in the wrong section, but i was wondering is there something that happens to our bodies that makes it harder to shed weight after pregnancy? I am unable to exercise due to disability but always found that with diet i could always get to my goal weight, now its happening ever so slowly and i feel like i've plateuad with 16 kgs to get to my goal weight pre-pregancy. Does our bodies keep those extra fat stores after birth or do our metabolisms slow? I realise that my stomach will probably never get as flat, not that it was so flat in the first place!

I cant give you an expert answer because im not one.....but we keep some fat after having the baby so they can get some through breastfeeding,
In general...some people find the breasfeeding makes them lose weight easy but others are the total opposite......and our bodies change as we get older too...
Everybody is different so its hard to say for sure...but if you know that you are eating well then the weight will shift...it may just take more time than u would like. :)

thanks for the encouragment Sianna! :D . I really hope that it starts coming off soon, hopefully before my 2 year wedding anniversary in november - i highly doubt it, but if i lose at least 10 of the 16 kilos i will be happy!

i was unable to breastfeed also as well as that i cant exercise so maybe that too is why its more difficult for me to lose.

Hey everybody is different...and i can see from your ticker that you have already lost a bit of weight!!
Good luck with everything though.....i dont think we realise that it takes some time for our bodies to recover from pregnancy and birth...
so hope evrything works out for you :D

After pregnancy our body will face a lot of changes in terms of growth and development. It takes time for a body to come in normal position after the pregnancy.
keep doing exercise and follow a diet plan for eating habits and try hard work you'll surely get results.
