#PreventWeightGain #GettingBackinShape after #CSection: Start working out at least a few mos. before pregnancy, keep a healthy diet, wear a high-waisted panty about 2-3mos postpartum depending on your healing process.(Consult your doctor first) When I was young, I used to hear that when a woman bears a child at 30 years & older, she cannot get back her pre-pregnancy body anymore. That’s why my ideal age to get married was about 25 or 26, so I’d have enough time to bear children before I turn 30. But instead, I got married at 29, got pregnant at 30, now, I am 31 with an 8-month old baby; I strongly disagree that a woman can’t get back into shape at this age! It may not be exactly as it used to be, but it is possible. Perhaps, with perseverance you could even be in a better shape than before. My doctor in the Philippines once told me that I unawarely prepared my body for pregnancy long before I got pregnant, I was always in perfect condition every time I had my examinations with her. I used to workout really hard from 2014-2015, perhaps, too hard that I used to cry in the shower after my trainings thinking, “What have I gotten myself into?!”, Lol! I never wanted to show my trainer any signs of weakness, I was determined to complete my sessions to improve my endurance, discipline; and basically, every aspect of my health inside out. Having been through an emergency c-section hinders me from doing any strenuous activity at the gym ‘til 8-9 mos. postpartum, I need full recovery for my incision. I’ve done brisk walking on the treadmills & unemphatic squats a few times since 4 mos. postpartum, but no sit-ups yet. I’m so glad I trained hard a few years ago, hence, it improved my wellness & I became truly disciplined in general. I made sure I ate really well. My #PregnancyDiet : No Rice•No Pork•Quinoa•Salmon&Mackerel•Chicken Breast•Beef•Veggies everyday(I love Broccoli)•Fruits(Strawberries helped me w/my acidity)•Pasta•Wheat Bread•Eggs(contain choline w/c is good for baby's brain devt.)•No Sweets ‘til 7mos•Soy Milk My #PostpartumDiet: I eat anything but I eat rice only 2-3x/month•I rarely eat pork•I eat fruits 1st thing in the morning•Veggies everyday 👍

In the caption, Bangs shared that she got back her sexy body by working out and eating a healthy diet. 

“Start working out at least a few mos. before pregnancy, keep a healthy diet, wear a high-waisted panty about 2-3months postpartum depending on your healing process. (Consult your doctor first).”

Bangs, whose ideal age of getting pregnant was 25 or 26, said that she was 30 years old when she conceived. “I strongly disagree that a woman can’t get back into shape at this age! It may not be exactly as it used to be, but it is possible. Perhaps, with perseverance you could even be in a better shape than before,” she added.

The actress also wrote that she unconsciously prepared her body for pregnancy by working out. “My doctor in the Philippines once told me that I unawarely prepared my body for pregnancy long before I got pregnant, I was always in perfect condition every time I had my examinations with her. I used to workout really hard from 2014-2015, perhaps, too hard that I used to cry in the shower after my trainings thinking, ‘What have I gotten myself into?!’, Lol! (sic)” she said.
