Diet and Exercise for Moms

Want to try to squeeze back into your pre-pregnancy clothes (or,
like us, at least get back to within two sizes of them)? Use some
of these resources and you’ll have those sexy curves back in no
time.

WEIGHT WATCHERS ONLINE

*Beauty Editor’s Pick!*

Busy moms often can’t find the time to go to weight watcher’s
meetings and with their highly intuitive web tools, now you don’t
have to. I am especially fond of the “flex points” program
in which thousands and thousands of foods are already pre-programmed
in their database to make your weight loss journey simple. In
my opinion, Weight Watchers online is the best diet tool on the
web.

How does it work?

You enter your height, weight and goal weight, based on those
factors, you are allotted a certain amount of points per day.
Enter the foods you each into their user intuitive database and
it automatically deducts the food points from your days total.
If the food item is not in their database, simply enter calories,
fat, protein, portion size and save it in your database. Exercising
will give you points back for the day! What motivation! Plus,
a certain amount of “cheat” points are given to you
each week (save them for a night out or us them on a daily basis
to increase your intake allotment). I lost 30lbs on this program
last year and you can do it too! Standard monthly fees are $46.90
for the 1st month $16.95 each additional month thereafter or pick
the 3-month savings plan which is $65.00 for the first 3 months
and $16.95 for each additional month thereafter.
