Posting query for the sake of my sister.. My sister wAs a little chubby during childhood and teenage days , but then by proper eating and exercising habits managed to reach ideal weight range..but recently weight gain happened during pregnancy..She had some serious medical issues during pregnancy and was during bedrest, also had to take progesterone tablets and few other medications..inspite of following sensible eating, weight increased due to hormonal changes etc.. It's been 6+ months after delivery but yet to lose any weight. She has asked me not to put her age, height, weight n all but She says she needs to reduce about 9 kg to reach ideal weight..the issues that she is facing are as follows; 1. Low stamina levels..she tries to do small yoga asana or small stretching exercise , and feels tired and breathless.. And lost flexibility of body also 2. Getting up several times at night , so interrupted sleep, sleep deprived..lack of sleep makes her reach out for junk and sugary foods and unable to control appetite sometimes 3. Flab accumulated around tummy, hips, thighs..lower half always is problem area from beginning. 4. Visitors come home often during afternoon times when she wants to catch up on sleep so those days She cannot take naps properly..she doesn't have a say on who comes home and when at inlaws place. 5. When people come home they look up and down at her figure and ask her "are u doing any exercise or not?" And also make negative remarks like " it's not possible to lose belly fat or fat from hips thighs area after Caesarian" or that " oh u seem to have put on some weight there" , " you should exercise more" , " havent u lost any weight" etc..not only it irritates but also demotivates her.. 6. Many ladies boast how they managed to lose so much weight by exclusively breastfeeding..but due to low milk supply and other issues she is unable to exclusively BF...She just pump or express and feed with cup n spoon etc...else she gives formula mostly... no amount of nutritional supplements or foods or capsules helped with milk supply So such discussions make her feel upset and she cries sometimes. 7.She wants to diet but doctor told her not to diet now as milk supply maybe affected. 8. She has fallen sick couple of times since delivery..has taken 3 courses of antibiotics..feeling weak 9. she is taking calcium , vitamins, iron supplements etc so I do not think she is Anaemic. 10. She is taking thyroid tablet due to hypothyroid.. Her TSH level was 4 but now it's normal.. 11. She is the type of person who gets anxious for small small issues also.. All these months she didn't think about weight and all but now started thinking as She doesn't want to get some other health problem due to weight.. Request anyone to give some useful advice so we can help her become slim again.
