Why Do Women Lose Their Shapes After Childbearing?

I often wonder why women really lose shapes after childbearing.Most of the time they get excessively shapeless leaving the men wondering where their shapely wives are.Why do women fail to work on their shapes after childbearing?I know of a man who,somewhere deep down,gets disgusted when he sees his wife bulgy tummy.Women,is it that difficult keeping in shape after bearing children?

Erm erm, sorry but erm you sound really really really and did I say really? vain!

I suspect you are quite young. If you arent, that's even worse

When the realities of life begin to hit you, you'll know how far

All these defence for shape-change is baseless. By the way, did the man marry d shape? We can't keep our shape ageless.

Ask the models that keep theirs how they pay heavily for it. They even forfeit the reality of existence. Ask MJ, Madonna, they will tell U more.

which one is "be supportive, marriage is for better for worse" bullshit?

what kinda crap is this u pple always spouting? "its called comfortable with who they are"? arrant nonsense!!

u had better be comfortable with the little or no attention you will get from me and i sure as hell will not turn my life into a painful endurance trek just because u lack discipline!!!! and i sure as hell will not be having sex or sleeping in the same room with such woman, i think i deserve to wake up to better sights than a human whale with flabs 1st thing in the morning! i cant even take u out!!!

i keep my shape and iv even cut down on my beer intake just to keep my shape and all that, if one woman thinks i will put up with such nonsense, she is joking!!

and i sure as hell aint gonna go jogging or wateva with u. if u cannot maintain discipline with ur physical structure, the marriage will either continue at a distance or u can have all the time in the world to ur self being obese.

we all had parents and if they could keep there shapes, then why cant we, mine were not obese and i wont marry a girl with obese parents, cos she will end up that way too!!!!! LOVE IS NOT BLIND!!, ITS REASONABLE!!!

indiscipline and indolence is not within reason!!!

@post

as much as some men would hate to hear it. . . . . . . the same reason why women put on weight after child bearing is the same reason why men get pot belly after a few yrs. its called being comfortable with who they are!

the only difference is that women can blame it all on the baby they carried while men would blame it on excessive beer and amala.

@sistajay i fear u r kinda off track and comments like yours could only lead to the degeneration of this simple thread into another of the ridiculous man vs woman battles. No one is denying that a good number of Nigerian men have pot bellies but the there is no need to bring that up as the topic here is why women in general gain weight after pregnancy. I for one will encourage my wife to exercise always but not excessively and i intend to do the same

Cause they focus on their kids instead of how to keep themselves in shape.

@Ebila, Ebonyeyes and I are workout-aholics. Unfortunately this is uncommon among naija girls. If I move home anytime soon, I plan on starting a classy gym chain in Lagos.

@op, are you experiencing the same thing.

I am not married and I don't have children yet, however losing weight is hard as it takes a lot of determination and dedication. I am sure it is doubly hard after giving birth, as the woman's attention is mostly on their children at this time. If you are the one going through this, you can't be brash or harsh about her weight gain because women in general are really sensitive about weight issues.

Start a routine of taking walks/jogs together, going to the gym together, compliment her on her efforts and I am sure she will start to get the hint and want to get back into shape ASAP.
