Working out to lose weight post pregnancy. Weight stable. Doing something wrong?

This is for my wife: she had our second daughter two months ago, & has started to workout seriously in the past week & 1/2 she has been eating right for atleast a month or so. the question is she lost a couple of pounds when she started working out but has since stayed at the same weight not going up but not going down, is it something she is doing wrong or is her body still just trying to adjust?

Hi there ~

Thank you for your question. I appreciate that you ask about the process of weight loss. If your wife is eating right and is also exercising she is doing everything that is necessary to lose weight. However, the pattern of weight loss is that you first usually increase your weight a little due to increased appetite after exercise then your metabolism kicks in making you lose weight. She may be at the point where she is going to lose weight hereafter if she continues to do what she is doing. I think this is going to be helpful if she continues the diet and exercise regimen. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day!
