The fact is, even the best diet pills won't work if mothers do not quit the couch and start moving around and getting some exercise. And unfortunately for some, even household chores won't cut it, they really need vigorous workout in order to burn the post-pregnancy weight off.
Some moms get creative. They continue doing their chores but they add a twist to them. They polish the floor using both legs to get both worked out. They use the baby as weights (and it's play for baby too!). Some brisk walk in the mall as they do errands.
Creativity and resourcefulness will pay off. And some amount of resistance. But really, it's all about quitting the couch!
