Looking back at my Post-Partum body journey (still in the journey) I have a few key things I did early on, that I believe helped out immensely!
Of course breastfeeding helps to shed off those pounds in those first few weeks! I know not all mamas can or want to breastfeed, but I def recommend it & love it! Another thing that helped, was eating healthy and getting out of bed! I didn't start working out until about 4/5 weeks PP, but I tried my best to at least go on lots of walks, and ate well balanced meals! On top of being somewhat active, I also IMMEDIATELY (1 day after birth) started wearing a waist trainer! I wanna talk about that today!
My mom always told me how much a waist trainer helped her stomach get back to normal after her 5 pregnancies! My mom looks freaking BOMB, so of course I took her advice. I bought a ultra cheap one for the first week because I was still so sore everywhere. But, I invested in some really good and effective ones from HourGlass Angel that really helped me to see a difference! Let's face it, our stomach stretches out so much during pregnancy. Right after you give birth...and even weeks/months after you will have a pooch from having a baby. It doesn't matter how many sit ups you do, or how healthy you're eating....that pooch stays! But wearing a waist trainer, helps to do just THAT, train your waist back down to its normal/smaller size! I wore mine 4-5 hours a day, and after a few weeks...I saw major results. Just like anything, you have to be diligent about wearing it to see results! I still wear mine, and I am finally starting to look how I did pre-pregnancy!
Another reason I love my waist trainer, is because it helped me so much with my confidence early PP. I felt pretty crappy, and hated how weird my stomach looked, even with clothes on. When I felt confident, I was a better and happier mom! I want Marloe to feel and be confident in whatever she chooses to do! And I don't want her noticing me feeling insecure about my body! My Hourglass waist trainers lifted my confidence so much! I posted the ones I have from Hourglass Angel below! Comment below if you have any questions!
