Unfortunately, the two most impossible things for postpartum women to do are diet and exercise. Daily busyness and lack of motivation are among the main challenges to lose weight.


However, are you aware that every mother is endowed with a privilege? In addition to manipulating your ‘superpowers’, you should set realistic goals to lose weight and maintain health.


Let's look at the following tips:


1. BREASTFEEDING

Breastfeeding is not only beneficial to the baby, but it also benefits you. This activity can burn between 200 to 500 calories per day - it’s the equivalent of doing aerobics for an hour!

In addition, the process of breastfeeding also stimulates the secretion of hormones that help uterine contractions. While you may have problems in the process of breastfeeding, these two reasons are expected to inspire you to continue breastfeeding for up to two years.




2. NO GYM? NO PROBLEM!

Housework seems to have doubled in number since the baby was born, right? But, if viewed positively, it can provide an opportunity for you to move more actively in the house.

So you don’t have to go to the gym to burn calories. Preoccupying yourself with housework is also an efficient way to forget for a moment the feeling of ‘hunger’ that always strikes as soon as we face the television. To lift your mood, tune in to your favorite music and do your homework with a smile, yes.




3. ARE YOU BUSY WITH YOUR BABY? BETTER!

For some mothers who can't do homework while the baby is not asleep, let's use this free time to be active with the baby. Perform various movements and facial expressions while playing with it. Engage in DIY activities, such as drawing puppets and producing 'sensory games'. Babies are entertained, you sweat, save even save!

If the baby does not want to be supported, wear a baby carrier while doing homework. The act of supporting the baby is one of the exercises that can strengthen the arm muscles and at the same time help you lose weight.




4. ASK YOUR HUSBAND ON A DIET ONCE!

Your diet must be disrupted when you’re the only one trying to lose weight at home, right? Which is not the case, you are satisfied to cook something delicious but can only touch two tablespoons. That's not to mention if the husband invites you to eat out. Exhaust your diet plan!

Use your ‘superpower’ to persuade your husband to follow a moderate diet. Perhaps this is the best time for you and your family to start adopting a healthy lifestyle. At the very least, you will be more motivated if there is someone who is a friend to lose weight together.




5. SLEEP WHILE THE BABY IS SLEEPING

Since the presence of the baby, surely your night's sleep is not like before. Breastfeeding at night and crying baby is a major disturbance for you to sleep soundly causing lethargy.

According to studies, fatigue can stimulate stress hormones that drive weight gain. Not only that, fatigue is believed to be the reason you tend to choose fast food as a snack and main course. Kind of familiar with this situation? So don’t neglect your break.

Try to go to bed while the baby is asleep. At the very least it can accommodate your often disturbed night’s sleep.




6. REMEMBER, YOUR WEIGHT ONLY INCREASES IN 9 MONTHS

This is a realistic picture that you should keep in mind. Your body goes through a variety of complex processes in the 9 month pregnancy phase. So, where can all this complexity be ‘undo’ in a month or two?

So, do not be in a hurry. At the very least you should take the same amount of time to lose weight again gradually.




7. DRINK BOILED WATER

Interestingly, most mothers will feel thirsty when the baby starts sucking breast milk. According to experts, the thirst felt by women when breastfeeding is associated with the process of maintaining fluid balance in the body.

Indirectly, it will encourage you to drink more boiled water than before. Boiled water is able to control hunger and optimize the function of internal organs for a more efficient fat burning process.
