Don't make the same mistake that many new moms make right now. Don't think that racing to get back in shape after childbirth is a high priority, or that the body is ready to be whipped back into shape. Realize that you just gave birth, which is a fairly traumatic experience for the body. Whether you gave birth naturally or by C-section your body needs time to heal and adjust to no longer being pregnant and giving birth. So if you gave birth in the last 30 days... relax. Focus more right now on sleep and tending to your baby.
Then, after you have come out of the fog of the first 30 days, focus you efforts on being vibrant and healthy - not worrying about how many days it will be till you get your old body back. You need to be realistic in your goals. Stop looking at stick thin models and comparing yourself to them. Beating yourself up isn't going to help anyone. Getting back into shape takes time, and it will be helpful for you to know that there are numerous studies that show you can actually be fitter and stronger after child birth then you were before.
With that being said there you need to make a timeline with realistic goals for you to achieve. These goals need to include healthy eating habits as well as exercise. The long term goal is for you to feel more vibrant and alive then you ever have before. You can do this. Start small, incorporate one good eating habit at a time. Don't try to tackle all your eating problems at once, try crash dieting, or launch head first into a vigorous exercise program. This approach can only lead to injury, disappointment and frustration.
Start small and then as your body lets you know that it is ready, you can gradually start to increase the intensity of exercise. Don't be fooled into thinking that low impact activity isn't having an affect. Even a short daily walk can have a powerful impact on the body and aid its recovery. Consistency is really the key to you getting your body back and being stronger and healthier than before.
It is perfectly reasonable to expect that you can get back into shape, rebuild, and even improve on your pre-baby body. The notion that moms are doomed to a life of 'frumpy' or 'matronly' bodies and style after childbirth is now considered old fashion. But just remember - slow and steady will get you better results for your overall wellbeing than mad exercise and dieting. There are more and more mothers these days breaking the norm and working to build strong, fit, healthy bodies, which bounce back from pregnancy with ease.
Now, I am starting to take back my body with Jogging.
My aim body ( dreaming)
1) What is my goal? I want to lose __kg in __ time.
2) Why do I want to achieve this goal? (if possible, come up with 50 reasons)
3) If I do not achieve it, what pains will I have? (come up with as many reasons as possible)
4) If I achieve it, what happiness will I have? (come up with as many reasons as possible)
5) What will happen to me if I continue my current situation for the next 10 years?
6) Then when do I want to take action?
Some solutions I can offer you for diet:
Breakfast: eat fruits/drink fruit juice
Lunch: Less carbo, more veg and fruits, less seafood, meat and eggs
Dinner: Same as lunch but no solid food after 8pm. Soups are great dinners
If you want to exercise to enhance the speed of weight loss. Go for some light jogging or do something you enjoy like an aerobic class or kick boxing class...

I love being a mom because it is the most rewarding thing I have done or will ever do in my lifetime. I’m actually shaping the life of a human being – scary at times, but I’m up for the challenge. My son is the epitome of the love my husband and I have for each other, and represents a bright future for our family.
I love being a Mom when I can make my son feel happy and secure. Nothing makes me more happy than seeing him with a smile on his face, knowing that my love helped contribute to it.
I love being a mom because I get to watch my children evolve and find what they love and learn from them.
I love watching my son interact with other kids. They seem to have a language all their own. I can see his own unique personality shine. He loves to make others laugh and is quite the comic.

Anyway, the hair color products i used was Revlon light Auburn , but since my hair is dark the result is not that really light...but i love the effect..
No matter what kind of mom you take the day to do something for yourself. Whether it's taking a long hot shower or playing with the kids. It's your day, live it and love it.
