I Got You Mama:

A Pediatrician's Guide to  Understanding, Creating and Loving Your Mama Body

Mama, here is the truth:  Your pre-baby body is gone, and she is never coming back.  Mourn her if you need her, but find a way to let her go.  The good news is that your post-baby body can be far better than your pre-baby body could ever dream to be.  

In this book, Dr. Cook guides you through a mindful  step-by-step approach of understanding your current body, improving your relationship with food and helping you cultivate a love of exercise.  This is a not a weight loss book.  Rather, this book is about becoming aware of the unique person that you are.  Through recognizing personal preferences, this book will help you learn how to create sustainable changes in your mind and body in order for you to live a healthy life full of joy.
