This is a continuous process, and you will have to be patient when you choose to go for it. You can start by doing simple exercise as early as four weeks after delivery. There are several ways of doing this such as engaging in Yoga or ball exercise which will help you lose your tummy. Others include aerobic exercises, running, and biking but these require you to heal first. Depending on the individual’s body weight, these exercises can result in 10-20 pounds (5-10 kg) loss of body weight. Caution should be taken for mothers who delivered through the cesarean session as some of these exercises are very vigorous.
