Sharing My Post Natal Weight Loss Story #PostNatalFatBurner #spon

Giveaway has ended.

FitTea invited me to share my post natal weight loss story.

Who remembers trying to lose weight after having a baby? To be honest, I didn't give weight loss much thought at first. I was a first time mom and I wasn't in a hurry to regain my pre-baby body. My only concern was taking care of my brand new baby and fitting into my new role as Mommy.  My husband is a very hands on parent so we learned together. He was there every step of the way. Our "baby" is now four years old. I guess that we are all different in deciding when we are ready to lose the pregnancy weight. And it's good to know that there are many options in which to drop those pounds.

During pregnancy I gained 50 pounds. It was my first (and only) pregnancy. I am thankful that I did not develop gestational diabetes. In fact I was on target with my weight gains as determined by my doctor. It wasn't until the end of my pregnancy that the most of my gains occurred. My pregnancy was considered high risk. I am an "advanced maternal aged" mom. It was both joyous and scary.

Fast forward to baby being born. In June of 2010 we had a healthy 8 pound 3 ounce baby boy. By the time I was discharged from the hospital I was 30 pound lighter. I did everything that I could to ensure the health of my child. I breastfed. Everything I ate was done mindfully. I did not want to pass along anything harmful to my baby boy. I didn't take any drastic measures in trying to lose weight. Since I was breastfeeding, I needed my calories. I didn't want to risk losing milk production.

I didn't weigh myself until  February 2011, when our son was 8 months old. I had lost a 7 pounds, without trying. No diet or exercise involved. I returned to work and was either breastfeeding or pumping constantly. By the end of March 2011, I had lost another 5 pounds. Total weight gained in pregnancy 50 lbs. Total weight LOST 42 lbs.  I was left with 8 pounds to get to my pre-pregnancy weight.

The folks at +Fittea has an option for new moms: PostNatal Fatburner . If you are researching herbal supplements to assist in your weight loss efforts, visit the FitTea website. Check with your doctor to see if this is a good option for you. Their product may be what you are looking for. They report that the supplement can actually help you to increase your breast milk if that is an area of concern for you, as it was with me.

That last 8 pounds was the toughest to lose. I think that had I learned of FitTea's PostNatal Fatburner, I may have tried it.  I would definitely talk to my doctor before trying any type of weight loss program or supplement.

  2. I was lucky to lose the weight with my boys. However, my daughter I gained too much weight and never lost it. I should try this even though it's been 4 years since I gave birth.

    1. It's been 4 years for me too since I gave birth. Those years went by so fast. I'd love to hear how it works for you if you do decide to try it.

    1. Pamela, I too took my sweet time. I lost the weight and got down to my pregnancy size - but have since put on a few pound that I would like to shed.

  4. After 3 pregnancies, I was left with an additional 20-25lbs. I didn't really work to try to lose it until a year after my last baby was born. I was busy doing Mommy things. LOL...I've slowly made a dent, but those 20+ lbs have become my nemesis! I think I might check out FitTea!

  6. Yep- as a mom of three boys I know the pain. Luckily- breastfeeding was always the most helpful. 6 month after delivery my weight was much lover than now. LOL

    1. I hear that every pregnancy is different - I've only had one so I have nothing to base that on, but all of my friends with more than one tell me that.

  8. It is harder to loose the baby weight the older you get to I believe . This sounds like an awesome product indeed and I will have to share this with my sister who has a 7 month old. I love this product because you can take it even if you have not just had a baby too. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Rebecca, I think the age thing has merit. I'm in my 40's now and my metabolism is WAY different than it was just 5 years ago!

  10. My babies are now finishing college so it's been a while. I exercised and got back on track after my kids were born. I've heard so much about this tea, I'd like to try it.

  11. I'm 5 months postpartum with my 3rd. With my second the weight just fell off, this one not so much. I also have the Implanon which I think may be contributing. I'm doing the 21 day fix now to get into shape.

  12. I would def recommend!! I was so frustrated... I was stuck with only losing 12 pounds after first, safe while breastfeeding, regular food cleansing diet that I did after 6 months of giving birth to my son. With this being my third child it wasn't easy to lose weight with just breastfeeding alone like my other two. I started taking, 10 days ago, the postnatal fit tea pills and I have finally broke my Plateau and lost 4lb in 10 days and I'm finally weighing in my high 137 but I'm just happy to be there. I still have about 10-15lb to go, to get back into all my regular clothes again. I'm determined now that I'm not craving things and I am getting fuller faster. Must try!
