Our expert says:
It will take a while, but it’s definitely possible. What I would suggest is obviously a gradual build up in the exercise programme. I think that to start with you can exercise 3 or 4 times a week (every second day). What I would suggest for you is the following programme on the Health 24 site.
Go to "Fitness" and then click on "Shape up". Here you will find a number of different programmes, including one for walking, another for running 10 km, and a cycling one. You can choose which you prefer. These programmes contain both cardiovascular (good for weight loss) and resistance training (for toning the muscles) and so are good overall complete programmes. You will see that the programmes are designed in such a way that they build up the intensity very gradually, and this will be perfect for you.
Finally, I see that you are aiming for 12 kg. I’m not sure what your weight was before you became pregnant, but I do wonder whether you are not aiming too high at the moment. I would go first for 6 kg, and then see how that goes and then reassess the goal. Aim for your pre-pregnancy weight and then go from there.
