1) Carry your child in a carrier and not in a stroller.
My daughter is 15lbs plus all of the bags. That means I have an extra 20lbs on me when I go out... and now that it's summer I go out as much as I can. Remember how long winter felt...???
2) Eat the same portion as your child.
I find that if I eat around the size of what Jaxon is eating (or should eat) I can control my portion.
3) Eat at the same speed as your child.
Jaxon takes 45 minutes to eat 1 grape. Imagine how much time it would take to eat 6. Honestly though if I control my speed then eating every 2 to 3 hours doesn't seem so bad.
4) Have a cup of coffee during the afternoon.
Coffee makes me skip a hunger moment during the day plus it gives me the push I need to want to still be a parent.
This is easy. After a long day with 2 kids I tend to go to bed early than I want to. It helps with forgetting hunger because I am too tired to think about food. Being too tired to eat is genius. They need to put that in a bottle.
I was 186 when Anjali was born. I now weigh 171. Thanks kids.
