Kate Winslet won't worry about her body after pregnancy
by Missy Jaramillo
Kate Winslet has been in the spotlight ever since she announced her pregnancy to the media, and she appears to be taking it in stride. Recently, she answered questions pertaining to her post-pregnancy body - specifically whether she's intent on recovering her flat tummy once the pregnancy calendar comes to an end.
Hello! Magazine reported that Winslet doesn't intend to worry much about her size after she gives birth. It seems as if she wants to relax and enjoy motherhood rather than face pressure from the media pertaining to her body.
"I want to be as healthy as I can be, and I want to have as much fun as I can have," Winslet said in an interview with Time Out magazine. "I want to be around for my children. That's it. Those are the priorities. Not getting a flat stomach. Don't get me wrong. I like staying fit and healthy. It's all part of a healthy attitude to life."
Winslet is slated to give birth this fall with her husband and baby daddy, Ned Rocknroll, by her side. She elaborated on the questions being asked of her about her post-baby body, adding that she doesn't understand how people have time to focus on a flat belly with a newborn at home.
"Let's be real here," Winslet continued. "Everyone is different. Springing back into shape after a baby - that's not really something that's ever happened particularly swiftly for me. That's just me."
Losing your baby weight
There's no official solution you can use to get rid of your baby weight once your pregnancy comes to an end. Every woman is different, and some take longer to shed their excess pounds than others. However, there are a couple of ways you can make it easier on yourself once your infant arrives.
Eating healthy foods is critical to shedding excess pounds. Talk to your doctor about diet and exercise - he or she can let you know which physical activities are suitable for your body following labor and delivery. In addition to adopting a workout plan and eating right, try to move as often as possible. Take the stairs if you can and try cycling to work. These tips can help you tone your muscles faster.
