Effectively Lose Belly Fat and Trim Down
Set Your Goals
Some people experience a lifestyle change, like having a baby. It has occurred, and you put that into consideration while you try to get rid your baby belly. Getting rid of the baby belly can be done if it is done correctly and consistently.
First, you need to face reality. You need to measure your belly, thighs, arms and chest. Note the measurements and place them somewhere safe. You will not be looking at these for some time.
Now, you need to weigh yourself and note the weight. Then, you need to set your goals and be real honest.
Do a little researched and find the diet that will make you happy and feel comfortable with your body. Don`t pick claims fast weight loss. Find a diet that you know you can lose weight and inches that last.
Next, you need to pick an exercise regimen that works for you and your baby--other children in your family as well. Health clubs with excellent nursery care or day care is imperative. You get a break from your baby and your baby gets a break from you while you exercise.
It would be wise to discuss the exercise regimen with your doctor. Most health clubs offer free exercise orientations for new members. During your orientation discuss your goals with your workout instructor and make sure you set them with him.
You need to schedule your workouts at least three times a week. Four to five times a week is much better. You can have your stable three-day workout with two days dedicated to a special class like spin, kickboxing or Pilates.
While you are getting used to working out on a regular schedule, remember to stick with your diet. It`s a very smart and healthy idea to concentrate on raw vegetables more so than fruits. Vegetables are lower n carbohydrates and better for your body. Fruits have more sugar (except for carrots and beets, root plants).
You need to continue to face reality by weighing yourself once a week. Keep in mind that muscle weighs more than fat, so you might not lose that much weight but trim down more so. Family, friends, and associates will notice the change in your body and your attitude, all for the best.
After 6 weeks, face reality, again, and measure yourself as you did at the beginning. Compare the difference in size and celebrate the fact that you have trimmed down. You notice that your clothes are not as right anymore.
Consider changing your regimen when you have reached a plateau. Keep at it and don`t stop. Acknowledge each milestone in your program. Tell your friends, husband, and baby. Be delighted when your friends notice too. You can look down at your belly, flatter, toner and more appealing.
