After being completely focused on your pregnancy for nine months, it can be sort of shocking to see just yourself when you look in the mirror after your baby is born. If you’re like most new moms, you can’t wait to get out of those stretchy clothes and back into your favorite pair of jeans. This can be done! Weight loss after pregnancy takes time, but you can do it! BYOB-Fit will guide you back to your favorite outfits that have been pushed to the back of your closet. With a solid exercise plan you can achieve your goal even though your pre-pregnancy figure seems like a distant memory, but don’t start a weight-loss program too soon. Your body needs time to recover from all that it’s been through: give yourself that time. Be sure you have your doctor’s approval before starting this or any other exercise program. Waiting until your six-week postpartum checkup is a good place to start dropping the baby weight, pending the go-ahead from your O.B.
