  • Start out slow. You just had a C-section so i wouldn't get back to exercising full force in the begining. Ease into it. Walking and swimming are great ways that are great for your body. Finding an exercise buddy will improve your odds of being successful. Drink lots of water. Nursing is a great way to drop baby weight too. Remember that it took 9 months to put the weight on, so be easy on yourself. Sometimes, your body just needs time to recover on it's own.

  • Check out Bikram yoga(Hot yoga). Its for all levels. I consider it to be more physical therapy than exercise, with the added cosmetic benefit of a dancers body. You work as hard as you can with your body, so don't worry about the chick in front of you doing a full camel...if your working towards it you are getting the same workout. I can go on and on but your better off googleing Bikram and do some research of your own. YouTube also has clips of classes. I had a C-section too and aside from shedding vanity pounds it completely healed my back and re-toned my lower abs.
