Today on the blog we have the lovely Krissy from Her Nourished sharing her TOP 5 TIPS on how Mums can balance their weight without having to resort to restrictive dieting. Our bodies go through so much change when we become Mums, from pregnancy to post pregnancy and beyond, and weight gain can be a major pain point for many of us. I personally had a very strict ob/gyn when I was pregnant who constantly kept my weight in check due to family history of gestational diabetes. With my firstborn I dropped all the weight plus more very quickly due to a thyroid issue and major anxiety borne out of sleep deprivation. This didn't happen with my second! However, after I stopped breastfeeding and when I knew I was "done" with having babies, I then began the slow process of working on my health and weight. My youngest is now almost 3 (where does the time go!!) and it's still a work in progress, but most importantly I feel healthy and strong, which in turn makes dealing with motherhood that little bit easier!
I love the tips Krissy has shared below - they are all extremely achievable. Especially point 3 - which Mum hasn't snacked off their kids leftovers? Make sure you read to the end to grab an amazing FREEBIE too - Your Simple Wholefoods Recipe Guide for Busy Mums!
