Real mums speak

Indusparent spoke to real mums who swore by this to lose post-baby weight and have managed to get their pre-baby body back.

Preeti A, a former marketing professional and a full-time mum to two young young boys, Kavin, 5, and Naitik, 2, says, "Yes of course running around an active kid helps lose post-delivery weight, but thats only if you eat healthy along with the running."

She adds that a being a full-time mum means that she is involved in a lot of physical activities and that helps her keep all that weight at bay.

"Picking up toys is is like yoga, juggling shopping and the baby is weight training, running after them when they refuse to wear clothes is like cardio, and squatting over a used toilet (especially by a boy) is your squats. Who won't lose weight?" says Preethi who lost a whopping 10 kilos post her second delivery.

We spoke to another mum who also shared a similar story and admitted that being active is really the key to losing weight.

A multi-media professional and a mum to five-year-old Navya Kukreti, Avantika Bahuguna lost 12 kilos post delivery and credits the weight loss to an active lifestyle.



"Running around your baby is the best physical activity for a new mother and one that not only helps you lose the post baby weight, but also keeps you satisfied as a new mother as you are there with your baby all the time," she admits.

We are sure that many mums have followed the same and is you have similar personal stories about your weight-loss then we'd love to hear from you!
