As you begin to build your body up after you have had a baby, it is important to write down a few postpartum weight loss goals for yourself. Just like everything else in this time after giving birth, you need to develop a strategy that will help you to cope with this new way of life. Your body has been through a major change and that can often position you to be overwhelmed easily with all that you have to do to get back in shape.

Luckily, with a few well thought out goals, you will be on your way to delivering consistent results no matter what your long term goals are. The key is to develop both long term and short term goals.

Long term goals are those goals that will focus on what you want to accomplish in six months or longer. For postpartum weight loss, your long term goal should be the maximum amount of weight you want to lose over a period of time. Further, it should include goals for tightening up muscles again to get that firm and tone body. These long term goals should be made, but they should be not expected for some time.

Second, focus on short term goals. With these goals, you want to structure them in such a way as they work to build towards your long term goals. If your six month, long term goal is to lose 30 pounds, then your short term goals need to help you to lose between one and two pounds per week. If you want to tone up your body, you will need to build short term postpartum weight loss goals that help you to accomplish this.

Here are a few things to keep in mind.

1. With postpartum weight loss, start slowly and build up to more vigorous workouts as you go. If you do this, you will feel more comfortable about working out.

 2. Instead of focusing on a gym heavy routine that you may not have the time for, focus on exercising in your day to day life in ways that you do have time for. Try doing exercises such as riding a bike, swimming or even just walking in place. You can also use the stairs to help you to tone up.

 3. Get help. The most successful people with postpartum weight loss are those that are able to do it with someone else. If you can, visit a local gym or find a group in which other new mothers are coming together to help support each other. This will give you the motivation and companionship you need to make it work.

Postpartum weight loss can be a slow process, especially since your body is already filled with new hormones

and you are tired from a lack of sleep. Through good nutrition and with regular exercise, and a few of these goals outlined for yourself, you can achieve the goals that you are looking for within your body and your fitness level.
