Will I ever lose this “baby weight”?

We, as women, place incredible pressure on ourselves to look as svelte and fit as possible. Pregnancy throws a monkey wrench into this goal and although we, for the most part, tolerate weight gain during pregnancy, we become absolutely driven postpartum to return to our pre-pregnancy selves asap. I tell patients it took them nine months to get to the end of pregnancy and our bodies don’t revert to our pre-pregnant state in 6 weeks. It’s going takes more time to do it in a healthy way: proper diet and consistent exercise and you’ll be back into your Size 4 jeans (if that’s where you started) after a few months.
