Our expert says:
I hear what you are saying and it is an unfortunate fact that some women do struggle to lose weight gained during pregnancy. Seeing that you seem to find it difficult to lose weight despite using 2 different diets, I would suggest that you have a medical checkup to see if you don't suffer from a hormone imbalance (thyroid, insulin or female hormones) that could have been caused by the pregnancy. Don't fret about not having a gym membership. There are many other ways of doing exercise that cost much less. Buy a skipping rope and skip for 30 min a day, starting slowly for 10 min a day, and then increasing how fast and long you skip as you get fitter. Swimming and going for brisk walks every day are also healthy aerobic exercises that stimulate the metabolism.
