How to get through it

-Breast-Feed.  
Not only is it good for the baby, but it's also much better for you, as it helps weight-loss and improves cellulite.  Massaging with body lotion or oil is also effective against cellulite.

-Reduce Your Calorie Intake.  As a new mum, you will be feeling tired and fragile. 

Aiming to lose 500g (just under a stone) a week is reasonable, but keep your diet as varied and balanced as it was before, just lower portion sizes to bring you down to 1700 - 1800 cal/day. 

A well-balanced snack to fill yourself up will help too, eg a yogourt, with an apple and a slice of wholemeal bread for a mid-afternoon break.    

-Do More Physical Activity. 
This is essential for burning fat and getting your waist back.  Water-based sports are best, as well as aerobics, but add in an endurance exercise like walking or cycling to build up your stamina.
