    Does anyone have any tips on how to lose the extra weight they put on during pregnancy?

    I’m a single first time mom to a 7  month old and I’ve just lost all flexibility and strength. I had emergency c section and then caught a skin infection in hospital. Was staying in bed for ages due to pain but it’s left me physically so weak.  I’m exhausted and can’t seem to find the time to exercise much. I also have tendonitis in my wrists which is really painful and limits moves I can do at times. I thought I would be back in shape by now but it’s just not happened and it’s getting me down. I’ve tried doing quick 5 minute workouts on YouTube which are good but doesn’t seem to be helping me. I don’t eat a lot really, but with the lockdown, I’ve been anxious to go to the shops so I’ve just been eating what I have in. Porridge, fruit and rusks 😂. Can anyone help or give me any tips?

    I lost mine by carrying my son in a sling.  I started with a few minutes every day and ramped it up gradually.  Honestly, it’s better than any gym, and free.   As he got heavier I lost more weight.  I gave up at a year because he was so heavy, but I’d lost my weight and I had toned tummy muscles that I didn’t have before. My son loved it.

    If your C-section is properly healed you could give that a go, and it suits lockdown and your daily exercise.

    Sorry for chiming in to the thread so late, just wanted to add my 2 cents.

    Yoga can totally help you lose weight from home if that’s your goal.

    Yoga burns calories when done the right way, that’s for sure!

    If you are serious about losing weight and getting fit, you might want to implement a 60-minute power yoga and/or vinyasa flow practice at least five to six days per week.

    This yoga weight loss program was easy to follow and worked flawlessly for me.

    Each class is easy to follow, but is varied and enjoyable. Dynamic Sequencing means you’ll always be challenged regardless of your current level.

    If you want to follow my example, think about coupling your practice with a whole foods diet for optimal results. Good luck!
