Myths about losing weight

Every woman, secretly or obviously dreaming of losing weight, at the preparatory stage for this event is faced with, alas, all of us inherent, laziness, unwillingness to “deprive” of something. The treacherous thoughts arise by themselves: “Don't, don't lose weight, you are so beautiful! What about our favorite steaks? You have so little joy in your life, do you want to deprive us of the latter? In the end, after two months you have a birthday - will you leave us without a sweet? Let's take weight loss! Yes, you have time to prepare for the beach season. ". And so on and so forth. What we do not say to ourselves, just to get rid of the painful work on ourselves.
In the world of lazy people, there are various myths that you and I should disassemble before we start the fight with extra pounds.
By the time of marriage, I unexpectedly managed to return to my “pre-tablet” form after a surgical operation. Just a month after the wedding, I realized that I was pregnant with Marusya.
Months of pregnancy flew fast. I didn’t quit my favorite job - I worked, I visited my doctor almost every day, read books about motherhood and upbringing, looked for a clinic where we would give birth, filmed for magazines and gave interviews, bought home products, even started to conjure at the stove. Although it was hard, I really liked the role of a young wife and future mother.
I am very grateful to the fate that I was given the opportunity to share the happiness of pregnancy with a close friend, that I managed to support her and share the information that I had accumulated
Three months later my friend Nastya became pregnant, and again everything coincided in our life. We, as before, called up at the earliest opportunity, only discussing not the fans and the shooting, but the vitamins for pregnant women and aching backs.
I admit, it was not easy to lead a measured lifestyle, which doctors recommend for pregnant women. I'm very smart, I like to plan a lot and have a lot of time. Of course, for the sake of Marusya, I had to temper my appetites, I became more cautious and careful. Nastya and I knew that we were responsible for our children and that we needed to limit ourselves.
You cannot, for example, go to the sea, because traveling with a long flight and an abrupt climate change is dangerous for pregnant women. In the evening, everyone goes to the cinema, and you stay at home, because the child in the stomach reacts very violently to the darkness and loud sounds. Everyone goes to the restaurant, but you don’t, because it’s full of smoke: I quit smoking and didn’t drink alcohol at all, refusing even a symbolic glass of wine. Taming the internal energy is in some sense similar to the compression of a spring. I accumulated strength - after giving birth, they were needed more than ever before.
I had a huge, well, just incredible belly. But during pregnancy I gained not so much - only 13 kilograms. That is, fit into a normal weight gain from conception to birth
Naturally, I began to recover. I did not allow myself such filth as a stake. True, I could eat a hamburger or a chocolate bar, if I really wanted to. It must be said, I was an approximate pregnant. I was not covered by any wild desires like strawberries in the middle of the night, and I did not fight hysterically until my husband got me - immediately, immediately! Or didn’t need to have a box of truffles around the clock next to the pillow. However, I also did not have a toxicosis: I felt fine, ate tasty and right.
Weight gain during pregnancy largely depends on whether you have extra pounds. The less you weigh, the more you add: if your body weight is less than the norm, depending on your height and lifestyle, your gain will be from 12 to 18, or even 20 kg! If weight is within the normal range, gain from 11 to 16 kg, overweight moms add 7 to 12 kg, and obese patients - 6 kg or less.
Naturally, the figures I give are average, your obstetrician-gynecologist, who is leading the pregnancy, will competently comment on your individual situation. By the way, if mom bears twins, weight gain will be more significant than during normal pregnancy - from about 16 to 21 kg.
While breastfeeding a child is going on, there can be no question of losing weight even - it will greatly harm the baby. If you go to work early and express milk, it is also not possible to make efforts to lose weight before completing this process.
Each of the kilograms added during gestation is needed by both mother and baby. Let's see how they are distributed.
Additional fat deposits that protect the body, gaining 3-4 kg, the baby weighs as much. About half a kilogram adds the placenta, the uterus during pregnancy weighs about 1 kg and the same amount - the amniotic fluid, the very waters that flow away at the onset of labor. While feeding a baby, breast weight increases by an average of 500 g, but this largely depends on the initial size of your bust.
Approximately 1.5 kg adds additional blood, which feeds the fetus, and about 2 kg of water, which is additionally retained in the body, so that all the organs responsible for the metabolism can cope.
Most of the gained weight disappears immediately after childbirth. Then begins the long and delicate process of returning to its former form. The most important mistake young mothers make is unwillingness to reckon with anatomy. It also forces them not to prepare for pregnancy in any way, and after all the press pumped in advance will facilitate obstetric aid, and then help to quickly return to normal.
After pregnancy, the body largely works for lactation: everything that we have comes into the milk.
Read at least one book devoted to pregnancy, and you will see that a lot of complex processes go on in our body for nine months waiting for a miracle. Naturally, the body cannot play everything back in one day, especially considering the need for lactation. Postpartum hormonal adjustment takes six months to a year, before worrying about your weight just is not worth it!

Exercise a child, enjoy motherhood and get ready to lose weight - collect and analyze information.
If you want to know how long the normalization of hormonal background will last, discuss this issue with your doctor, as well as with your mother and grandmother - they will share information about how and how much women of your kind have recovered after pregnancy.
This process, of course, depends not only on heredity, but also on lifestyle. By the way, I know a couple of examples of how these donuts became slimmer after giving birth, without making any significant efforts at all! I think that this is a consequence of happy motherhood and the absence of a bothersome bustle - psychologically, they were more slender girls ready for fullness. In front of me there is an example of a rapid return to the original form - Alena Vodonaeva, with whom we still maintain friendly relations, after the birth of her son Bogdan six months later was the same reed as before. What's the secret? Genes, enjoyment of motherhood and, of course, love for yourself and your body!
I had a difficult birth - I groaned and screamed for 13 hours. It seemed to me that the pain would never end. After all, I just wanted to lie in bed, where no one would touch me.
My friends were almost always there and supported me as best they could. Nastya the next day after the birth of Marusya was brought to me and, cautiously looking around at her belly, asked what it was like to give birth to a child?
Yura, like many young fathers, was completely stunned by the changes in our life, and did not help me with anything.
I heard that it hardly hurt that she was afraid of anything.
After the birth I began to think that I was married to Karinka and Nastya. Household aspects of family life lay on my rather narrow shoulders. I was shaking over Marusya, I wanted to spend every minute looking at my little princess. All the riches of the world I would not hesitate for a second, I would trade for her wonderful curls and pink heels. I terribly did not want to give my daughter to the nurse, but life dictated its own conditions, and a month after the birth I went to work.
There was no time at all! At night, I got up to the child, in the morning I had to express milk, feed Marusya. Then I slept for an hour, fed again, did a little more sleep, and at nine in the morning I already met the make-up artist, then ran to the shooting and — again home to my daughter. And you still have to catch up at the grocery store, you still need to be interviewed, you still need to devote at least some time to your appearance.
Living in such a rhythm, I did not have time to overeat. What is there to eat again - I could only have time for ten minutes in the shower, and then with the door open - to watch when the child wakes up. Marusya helped me as best she could: she was not particularly restless, rather the opposite - a rather balanced girl.
However, after pregnancy, my figure changed a little, and it was necessary to update my wardrobe - the same TV presenter cannot appear on the screen in the same outfits for the week in a row. Of course, the grandmother and mother rescued, but it was still terribly difficult to do everything.
Usually the life of a young mother is a special period. This is a happy time when a woman spends a lot of time at home. A refrigerator and a stove are nearby, and nothing seems to be required, in addition to being engaged in the baby.
It so happens that the husband, seeing his well-groomed and unclean wife in children's cares, seeks to calm her down. But the phrase: “Oh, don't worry, for me you are the most beautiful”, can not commit to anything - in time the husband will start to walk on the side.
In general, do not listen to them. For those young moms who agree with ease and pleasure that they are “so beautiful”, you can often see some wild color palette on your head: the hair at the roots has grown back, the paint has been washed from the middle, the ends have turned yellow. There is a wonderful excuse for everything: a child.
