A woman will not lose as much weight as she expected to lose after the birth of her child. She may end up with unwanted pounds due to excessive weight gain during the pregnancy. In many cases, fluid retention is the problem and the weight will drop approximately three weeks after delivering the baby due to frequent urination and perspiration.

If you are not the lucky type of woman that just soars through pregnancy like nothing happened, then prepare yourself to reclaim your body. Remember, Mom is important and not just baby. You need to think about how you will take care of yourself and put the effort in to lose weight when needed.

Is anyone not giving advice about losing weight? You can find many suggestions, but like anything, it starts with the basics. We have heard them all before. You will hear them again. Diet. Exercise. Massage Therapy. Write them down and memorize them, because you will see them again.

Diet. Diet. Diet. You are what you eat. Food is your energy. The types and range of fuels helps the body run and regulate itself appropriately. Do not fight an uphill battle. Get your intake of foods to be better quality for your bodys nutrition and you have won half the battle. Its OK to indulge with a dessert, just not everyday!

The problem with fast food is it contains high levels of sodium. Sodium helps to retain water. A good portion of the weight gain in pregnancy is water weight. Water intake is essential in flushing out the toxins of our bodies. Replace any soda or juice drinks, which contain sugar, with mineral water.

The next important step is exercise. First, get your physicians approval for when exercise is appropriate for you. Go for a walk! It is the perfect exercise. Your baby will love it too. Push the stroller and get your baby used to going out with you. It is a win-win.

Did you know that breastfeeding is a dieters dream? Breast feeding can wipe out up to 500 calories a day when you breastfeed. If you do breastfeed, you must make sure that you are getting adequate nutrition during this time. Discuss this with your physician and find out how you can lose weight while breastfeeding.

Massage chair therapy can be a great tool in the recovery process after pregnancy. Your body has gone through some tremendous changes. Massage chairs provide targeted massage that can ease aches and pains, especially in the lower back. Massage chairs help to flush out toxins from the body which helps your weight loss goals. There are many potential benefits you can obtain from a massage chair. Check with your physician on how massage chairs can be part of your regimen.

One of the toughest things to do during and after pregnancy is checking your weight. Most women fear the worst. Weight has such a psychological and emotional baggage with it. Women can't believe they are just gaining weight so fast during pregnancy while they worked their whole life to not have it. Be realistic with your weight loss targets. Just a hint, it did take you nine months to gain it.

Check with your physician and get their suggestions on how you can regain your pre-pregnancy figure. Consult your physician about these suggestions, to find out the proper nutrition, diet, exercise program and massage chair therapy that you have in mind.
