Losing weight after pregnancy often top to-do list of every new mothers. It's amazing how to see celebrity mother like Victoria Beckam make losing weight after pregnancy look like no sweat. She was seen in her usual super-svelte self during New York Fashion Week last September, just weeks after giving birth to baby daughter Harper Seven.

Many moms out there still struggling to lose the baby weight, including me. I still looks like 8 months pregnant after 2 months giving birth to my second baby and I'm still in the process to lose the weight. It's really a hard process.

How Mrs Beckham actually getting back to her pre-pregnancy body so quickly? It seems that celebrity also works hard to lose weight after pregnancy.

 The famous mother of four revealed to Vogue that she running six times a week to shed her baby weight.
 "I worked out a lot. I ran a lot. I did it six days a week. I become quite obsessive when I get into something."

For new mothers who are anxious to lose weight after pregnancy fast, Baby Center offers these 5 advises.

1. Don't start dieting too soon 
Your body needs time to recover from labor and delivery. Give yourself until your six-week postpartum checkup before you start watching your calorie intake and actively trying to slim down. And if you're breastfeeding, experts recommend that you wait until your baby is at least 2 months old before you try to lose weight.

2. Be realistic about weight loss 
Keep in mind that you may not be able to return to your exact pre-pregnancy weight or shape. For many women, pregnancy causes permanent changes such as a softer belly, slightly wider hips, and a larger waistline. With this in mind, you might want to adjust your goals a bit.

3. Embrace exercise 
There's no magic pill to help you lose weight: A healthy diet combined with regular exercise is the best way to shed the pounds – and to keep them off. And it's important to exercise while trying to lose weight to ensure you're losing fat instead of muscle.

4. Lose weight slowly 
Don't go on a strict, restrictive diet. Women need a minimum of 1,200 calories a day to stay healthy, and most women need more than that – between 1,500 and 2,200 calories a day – to keep up their energy and prevent mood swings. And if you're nursing, you need a bare minimum of 1,800 calories a day (most nursing moms need more like 2,000 to 2,700 calories) to nourish both yourself and your baby. Too-rapid weight loss can also release toxins that are stored in your body fat into the bloodstream – and into your milk supply.

5. Eat up – and take your time!
With a new baby and schedule, it can be hard to find the time to eat. Don't skip meals in an attempt to lose weight – it won't help, because you'll be more likely to eat more at other meals. And you'll also probably feel tired and grouchy.
