Best Way to Lose Belly Fat and Trim Down
Getting rid of the baby belly can be done if it is done correctly and consistently.
Be Honest With Yourself
Having a baby is a major a lifestyle change. You have a lovely and cute baby, which you need to consider while you get back in shape. Getting back in shape and rid of the belly fat can be done if it is done correctly and consistently.
First, you need to face the reality of the condition of your body. After all, it just had a baby and you are breastfeeding. Breastfeeding is good for both you and the baby. Women who breastfeed after giving birth have a much easier time getting back in shape.
It's a good idea to tell yourself that exercise is a great way to feel better about yourself. That will be good for your baby, too.
Using a tape measure, you measure the size of 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 mentally note your weight. Next, you need to set your goals and be real honest with yourself. How many inches do you want to lose? How much weight do you want to lose?
Do a little researched and find the diet that will make you happy and feel comfortable with your body. Don`t pick claims that promote fast weight loss. Find a diet that you know you will stably lose weight and inches.
Breastfeeding is good for both you and the baby. Women who breastfeed after giving birth have a much easier time getting back in shape.
It's a smart idea to pick an exercise regimen that works for you and your baby. Join a health club with an excellent nursery or daycare center. Remember, your fitness time is your time. When you take a break from your baby, your baby takes a break from you. Taking a break from each other will help build the relationship.
Your baby will be with other babies. As he or she grows, they will make new friends at the fitness club. Two or three years done the road, you will be dropping your son or daughter off at the daycare center so they can have a playdate with their friends while you work out.
Before your baby is two or three years old, you need to get your body in shape. It would be wise to discuss the exercise regimen with your doctor. Most health clubs offer free exercise orientations for new members. During your fitness orientation discuss your goals with your instructor.
You need to schedule your workouts at least three times a week. Four times a week is better, but you can have your three-day workout week with an added fourth day 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 healthy diet.
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 a ton of weight but your body will trim down. You will start to feel better and happy about yourself.
Face Reality Again
After 6 weeks of being on your fitness program and new diet, it is time to face reality, again. You need to measure your body parts as you did at the beginning of your fitness program. After you take your second measurement, take the first measurements and compare the difference with the second measurements. Are there improvements? Did you trim down in some areas? If you followed your program, you will see positive results. You will notice that your clothes don't feel as tight, and you have more energy.
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. You can look down at your belly. It is flatter, toner, and more appealing.
