  • Some things never go back to the way they were pre-baby. Working out and eating right will help a lot, but don't expect to be exactly how you were before baby.

  • It takes time. I was back to my pre-pregnancy size about a month later but things still didn't fit the same way. It took another month or so after that because I was doing okay. But I am a VERY healthy eater and follow a strict diabetic diet. I also did work out videos at home at least once a day to try and help. It took about a year for me to be where I wanted. I was a size 14 after having my son and a year later I was at a 6. Eat healthy and try to work out some. It doesn't need to be intense. Even a few laps around a mall or the neighborhood is a great thing!
