Is how you feel about your post-baby body ruining the joys of becoming a mom?

You're not alone in feeling like this.

A lot of new moms find it difficult to come to terms with their post-baby body.

On the one hand, you’re full of limitless love for your new baby.

But on the other hand you can’t believe what having that baby has done to your body.

It doesn’t have to be this way, you know.2

You don’t have to hate yourself.

Take a deep breath, read on, and make peace with your post-baby body.

1. Give It Time

Give your body time to recover from giving birth.

It took you nine whole months to grow a little being inside you.

Give yourself at least that much time to get back into shape.

You owe yourself that right?

So take it one day at a time, exercise well and eat smart, and you'll love your post-baby body again.

Babies take up a lot of the mom’s time and energy so don’t exhaust yourself trying to lose weight or starve yourself of essential nutrients.

2. Have Realistic Expectations

Don’t set goals like losing 20 pounds in a month.

You know that’s not possible or even healthy!

Why set yourself up for disappointment and then get all bummed out about how you look?

Be realistic in your expectations from your post-baby body.

The weight takes some time to move and you need to believe that slow and steady is the way to go.

3. Don’t Be Too Hard on Yourself

You’re a new mom, surviving on minimal sleep, hurried meals and two-minute showers.

Don’t be too hard on yourself if you don’t manage to take the time out to exercise.

It’ll take a while for a routine to set in and once both you and your baby are comfortable, you can get into a regular workout regime.

Don’t beat yourself up over it.

Oh, and definitely don’t agonize over that donut you had for breakfast.

You’re allowed a little sugary treat you know.

Being a mom is hard work!
