Post Baby Body: Why Are We so Obsessed?

When you have a newborn, it seems like your focus should be on resting, taking care of your baby and being with your family. However, for some reason, I was also concerned with my post baby body. Why are we so obsessed with women’s post baby weight?

After having my first child, I was, at first, so engrossed with my child that I didn't pay attention to my body. However, when we came home from the hospital, I remember feeling dismayed with my stomach. I didn't realize I would still look pregnant after having the baby. Yet, with time, my post-pregnancy body returned to "normal." When you have a newborn, it seems like your focus should be on resting, taking care of your baby and being with your family. However, for some reason, I was also concerned with my post-baby body. Why are we so obsessed with women's post-baby weight loss?

Celebrities' Post Baby Bods

Every time I go to the store, there are women's magazines near the checkout stand. It seems like post baby bods are splashed all over the covers. I recently saw a story about Jenna Dewan-Tatum's great post pregnancy body. Yes, she looks great. However, if she didn't, then there would be articles calling her fat. I have even seen polls asking people, who will lose the baby weight first, Kim Kardashian or Jessica Simpson? When the media turns "losing the baby weight" into a competition, it's no wonder women feel compelled to lose the baby weight as fast as they can.

Our Obsession With Body Image

Needless to say, America is obsessed with body image. We are captivated with people who are obese but also those who are extremely thin. Makeover and weight loss shows are often in the lineup for primetime television. Victoria's Secret catalogs and fashion magazine don't help either. According to brown.edu, " 74.4% of the normal-weight women (and 46% of the normal-weight men)" said they "thought about their weight or appearance 'all the time' or 'frequently." That number is alarming high and says a lot about our body-obsessed culture.

Pregnancy Weight Gain

With my first child, I was told I wasn't gaining enough weight. Then, when I did gain more weight, I was told by a different doctor that I was gaining too much weight. With my second, I stopped worrying about my weight gain and just ate healthy (but added some additional calories for the person growing inside of me). According to WebMd, a woman of average weight "should gain 25 to 35 pounds after becoming pregnant." People carrying twins should gain closer to "35 to 45." If you are underweight, the recommendation is "28 to 40 pounds" and for overweight women it is "15 to 25 pounds during pregnancy." This is just a recommendation and you should always talk to your doctor.

Tips to Lose the Weight

While it isn't good to obsess over your post-baby body, it is good to lose the weight, especially if you were overweight before the baby. However, this should be done at a gradual pace. According to WebMD, eat healthy but "try not to dip below 1,800 calories a day, particularly if you are breastfeeding." Drinking plenty of water, eating protein and breastfeeding are all ways to help you lose weight. And, once you receive the green light from your OB, you can start a moderate exercise routine.

Stop the Obsession

While it's easier said than done, I think one of the best ways not to obsess about your post-baby body is to stop comparing yourself to celebrities. While some stars lose the weight properly others probably do not. In addition, they often have housekeepers, nannies and trainers helping them. It's also important to surround yourself with people who are positive about your weight loss. Find a friend to walk with and remind your spouse to be positive too. Finally, remember that it took about 9 months to gain the weight. For most women, it's not going to come off that fast.
