Hope you’re doing well.
I’ve always loved reading, whenever I had some time in hand i read an article in a newspaper, in my WhatsApp group or even in a magazine at reception desk. My love for reading took a step ahead in my pregnancy. I was at moms and obviously I wasn’t allowed to do a lot of house chores and I was left with the only option to read articles. i kept a close track on the weekly pregnancy changes in body. Sometimes my gynecologist was very much astonished to see me asking for details that no patient ask.
I also felt that post pregnancy weight loss articles had a lot of drama than the articles I read about pregnancy. There were tips, tricks, food habits, gym, yoga, GREEN TEA!
I saw few people coming up to me and politely saying that I’ve put on weight! ‘Wow as if I dint know that already and thank you for making me feel worse!!’ Did I also mention that this was said just after a month of my baby’s arrival? I don’t understand the concept where in everyone wants a slim and good-looking wife, a baby after 1 or 2 years of marriage and immediately after the pregnancy the wife should look all glammed up. If a baby takes 9 months don’t expect a woman to get to her pre pregnancy weight overnight.
There are 100 more things happening in her life. The new baby, mood swings, hormonal changes in the body, the severe pain, advises, dos and don’ts etc. she’s already having a tough time and it’s not a good idea to make her feel worse about her weight.
According to me we learn about weight loss only after the pregnancy because before that we dint face an issue of weight. Most of the girls or women are in a good happy weight before pregnancy and what happens right after pregnancy is that you start researching about the weight loss as a first timer. So there are different methods of losing weight and as you are the first timer you may not really know which one suits well for your body.
The first 6 months of baby and mother is crucial. The baby needs utmost care and attention at this particular time. So as a first timer it’s very risky to experiment with your body or diet at this stage.
Do not come under anybody’s pressure to lose weight especially for the first 6 months, stress will not make you lose weight.

Another major thing I want to disclose here is that LOVE YOUR BODY.
Make a promise to yourself to take care of your body because as I said earlier it’s your right.
Get fitter not because everyone’s asking you to,
But for yourself.
Stick to your roots. Having healthy homemade food, avoiding excess sugar and junk itself makes a lot of difference.
It’s always a good feeling to fit into your old clothes.
Most of the women face knee and joint pain in their mid-40s and it’s majorly because of the weight. If we observe closely the large amount of people who walk/jog in the park are uncle and aunties.
It’s obviously a good feeling of that sight but it’s a big lesson for us that taking care of our body at the right time is an important factor.
Let’s not just wait until our doctors’ advice to do some sort of exercise rather be fit and expect an unexpected compliment!
Don’t lose hope, day one or one day the call is yours!
There is always a person who cheers and motivates
And one such is my better half!
I believe in motivation and I hope this serves as one.
That’s it for now guys.
Until we meet again,
