Many new moms want to lose the postpartum weight but feel self conscience working out with others in their “postpartum bodies”.  Keep in mind that one BIG KEY to weight loss is to work out with others because they will hold you accountable.  For example, if join an exercise group (i.e. like a stroller workout class) other moms will wonder where you are if you haven’t come to class, and will follow up with an email or a phone call.  The other KEY to weight loss is having support of other moms who have common interests and goals, plus a good instructor will motivate you and encourage you.  So get out of your comfort zone and join a class, the benefits of friendship, support, and weight loss far out weigh any discomfort you might feel initially.
