It's been 9 months postpartum..I'm stuck at same weight as I was while discharged from hospital after C section..im not going to mention my height weight etc as I'm little embarrassed..but I know exactly why I have not lost weight.. 1. Had extremely complicated pregnancy with home rest, and bedrest in advanced stages.. 2. Difficult time during and after delivery due to premature contractions and early delivery 3. Extreme mental stress due to all medical problems and tension about health of prematurely born baby 4. Hypothyroid , and taking thyronorm for it. 5. Post delivery diet was ghee rich according to family tradition and had to follow it for initial months before taking normal food 6. Lot of tensions and unexpected fights and Mis understandings in laws place so lot of irritation in mind 7. Lack of sleep..especially when baby is colicky or weather change or unwell there are sleepless nights..but that's to be expected 8. Unreliable household helps..maids are irregular and not proper..so many a time I don't get proper time for myself and end up doing household task that make me tired. 9. Low milk supply, hence could not exclusively breastfeed. 10. Lack of energy to exercise.. I try to follow diet and small exercises but I'm not consistent with it.. Every now and then guests keep coming...and now and then social occasions keep coming up which I have to attend..its so irritating when in law relatives, my relatives, neighbours, family friends etc comment on my weight..why can't these people just talk some useful stuff instead of checking out my body and commenting on it..I have few doubts * why are some people so jobless that they comment on weight like this..don't they have sympathy for lady who has gone thru such difficult time and slogging day and night without sleep.. *heights of indecency to comment in front of everyone.. * how do they expect a woman to magically reduce and become size zero after c section delivery..it takes time and effort right.. * is it normal to not lose weight even after so many months ? The belly and hips are same ..its irritating when few women boast about how they were so slim even few weeks after delivery.. I want to know how u moms reply when people make unflattering remarks about ur weight..and how long you took to come back to pre pregnancy weight..and how it's possible to reduce weight while managing house and kid with minimum help.. I'm concerned about slimming down in a healthy way..not by doing crash dieting or boot camp exercises etc.. I'm not sure if I posted in correct forum..moderators if this shud be posted in different forum pls move it.
