Hi, My client recently had her 2nd baby about 2 months ago. She’s in her late 20s and an athlete. She lost weight very quickly after the first one, but despite all of her exercise and portion control, she’s not losing now (actually gained 2 pounds). She weaned off of breastfeeding and is trying to cut her carbs, but it’s challenging as a vegetarian.
Any advice on how to make the scale budge after a second kid?
Jason, Vivian, Jared and Jocelyn,
Thanks so much everyone. I read her your answers, and she felt much better (as did I)!
Yes, I think she just expected herself to lose the weight as fast as she did with her first baby. I realize that every pregnancy is different, but I haven’t worked with enough new moms to really explain why. But you have helped me do so very well.
