Five Favourites: Weight Loss Tips

We've all been there, right? The scales don't say what we want them to, and, well, it's a bit irritating. Thankfully, here are five easy, quick, and mostly painless ways to shed a few of those extra pounds!

1. Pregnant? Go and have the baby. (Please remember I said mostly painless). You may have to wait a few months, but I can assure you, the results will be spectacular.

2. Step off the scales, put down the baby, step back onto the scales. See? A good few pounds lost in under thirty seconds. Fast, effective, and safe. Unless you put the baby down in a snake pit, whirlpool or tiger enclosure, in which case a little extra weight is the least of your worries.

3. Repeat step 2, this time with the toddler hanging off your leg.

4. Remove any and all baby-related gunk from your clothing. Empty your pockets of Kleenex, Lego, coins, keys, half-eaten pieces of toast, etc. You may also want to check your bra for cracker crumbs at this point.

5. Run downstairs to stop the toddler feeding Hama beads, hair elastics or similar to the baby. Repeat step 4 with any junk accumulated in the process. Heck, just take your clothes off. No one's watching.

There, now, doesn't that feel better?

Have fun, and embrace the wobble. (Or the Womble, if that's what floats your boat. I'm not judging).

  1. Ha! Having the baby did drop me down about 20 pounds immediately. It was awesome!

  2. This is so funny! I have been fighting with the scale for years! Who knew it would help if I would just put my 5 year old down while standing on it :) hahah. These are awesome.

    Thanks for linking up with The Koala Mom and I! Always love meeting new friends! :)

  3. Hahaha, love these tips!!! So true. :) I've often heard it said that it took 9 months to gain the baby weight, so expect it take at least 9 months to lose it too. Although I still hope to lose it all when the baby is born... :) (That only worked for my first) :) Thanks for linking up with 5Faves this week!

  4. Oh I love this so much and needed this today as well. Thanks for linking to #sharewithme

  5. Great tips to share. It takes 9 months to gain baby weights so people I think don't realize they need to take time to lose it in a healthy way too. Apologies for the late commenting the hand over of Share With Me to Mummy Fever and the busy half term has me a little behind but never forgetting your amazing support and thanking you for linking up. I hope you will link up again tomorrow for another great round of Share With Me over with Charlotte and keep Share With Me blog hop going long after my hosting. #sharewithme
