How I lost my post-pregnancy weight

My arms, legs, ankles was HUGE whilst pregnant
I was at my heaviest when I was pregnant, weighting about 11 (70 kg) stone then straight after my daughter's birth, i only lost 5 kg.
my daughter's one month bday
The 5 kg I lost accounted for my daughters birth weight, water retention, placenta and sadly I also lost a considerable amount of blood during my C-section that I've been advised to get a blood transfusion. However, I kindly rejected it and opted for the iron tablets. First month after birth, I was completely home bound with my little one, recovering from my C-section surgery and looking after my child. My husby's mum fed me well and cooked me healthy chicken and ginger soup evey day.
just chicken and ginger soup without rice
Believe it or not, this was the only food I eat for the first month after birth. I have tried my hardest not to give in to eating carbohydrates such as rice, bread, potatoes and cakes. Even before I got pregnant I dont usually eat that much carbs apart from cakes so it wasn't that hard for me to stick with no carbs diet besides the chicken and ginger soup was soo delicious and satisfying that most of the time I was left feeling full. Although, I may have eaten some fruits and some seafood but not that much.
