Why moms are susceptible to obesity

Mom's are more susceptible obesity for separate reasons. First of all, you have gain a lot of weight to have a baby. Your body is processing like a factory, you are creating life it's beautiful but you have all that added weight to lose afterwards, so that's number 1. It's hard to lose the weight after you have kids. the second reason is isolation, i mean let's be frank once you have a baby it is hard to get out of the house. You just can't spring up and do stuff, there's complications, you have a baby now. So, everything is revolved around that baby and their needs. So, it not like I can just get up and do this and get up and do that, I have to think about protecting that child, which means you are stuck at home a lot more. And sometimes that leads to things like depression and health and refrigerators right there. So, I am going to the fridge more. I am getting inactive, I'm not doing things like running around such my mom's are susceptible to obesity.
