With each of my sons’ birth, after 5 months, I noticed my extra baby weight just started dropping.
I nursed both of them so that helped.
But after reading this article, I realized it was just being busy with everyday mommy activities that played a major factor also.
I was an active mom and always on the go, but rarely got to the gym bc I always had my kids with me.
I didn’t really hit the gym til each son was a year old.
So, mommies, don’t fret if you can’t hit the Treadmill and free weights. Just enjoy spending quality time with your kids and staying busy.

No excuses moms. The body you want is achieveable. Just put your mind to it and stay busy!
