(L-R) Iya Villania, Isabel Oli, and Shamcey Supsup all became mommies this year.

Most first-time moms will be one in saying that that motherhood means joining "Team No Sleep."

But aside from the sleepless nights, another constant worry of many women is getting rid of the pregnancy weight gain.

Some had done it quite effortlessly; others some had to go the extra mile.

Check out the post-pregnancy fitness diaries of the six first-time moms who gave birth this 2016.

1. Shamcey Supsup

The former Binibining Pilipinas-Universe gave birth to Baby Nyke last January 24 by Caesarean section.

A month after, people kept on congratulating her, but not because of becoming a mother.

On Instagram, Shamcey wrote, "Have you ever been congratulated on your pregnancy, only to inform them that you've actually already given birth over a month ago?

"Well I have... not once, not twice, but three times today! #ismybellythatbig #idontknowwhattosay"

Thanks to her genes and waist corset, she's now back to her pre-pregnancy weight.

2. Beauty Gonzalez

The Kapamilya star shared her struggles as a first-time mom in an interview on Magandang Buhay last May.

She admitted that after her pregnancy, she had to deal with the changes in her body.

"Yung difference ng body mo talagang nakaka-oh my God. And she was so big, she was like 8.3 pounds, that's why I had a Caesarean [section]."

She said being a hands-on mom helped her get back in shape.

“Siyempre, I’m very hands on with my child and in the house so anything regarding my kid, yung puyat, padede, lahat so nakakapayat din siguro, di ba?
"And we always travel, and I only travel with my partner and the baby walang yaya so nakakapayat din talaga."
Beauty also watched her food intake.
"Puro dahon-dahon na lang, lettuce, camote, gulay 'tapos tofu-tofu.”

On her blog, she shared her thoughts about losing weight.

"I knew it’s part of what we have to go through as moms. What I did not realize though and this certainly caught me unprepared, was the fact that losing these pounds is DIFFICULT."

Before she got marriage, Isabel religiously worked out despite her busy schedule.

"But having been in hiatus from working out for almost a year now, going back to my workout routines is really hard for me," Isabel said.

How long will it take before she becomes thin again?

Isabel said, "We shall see."

4. Michela Cazzola

The Italian banker who gave birth to Baby Michael James last August 8, has been getting some help from her waist corset.

Very soon, the partner of James Yap will start working out again, so she'll lose more pounds in the coming days.

Can't wait to work out again ???????? In the meantime, thank you, Carla ???????????? @slimmingcorsetsph

6. Iya Villania

Iya actually planned doing simple workouts right after giving birth.

Hence, her labor kit contained different exercise paraphernalia, such as jungle gym, Orb ball, mini-core ball, gym ball, to name a few.

She's been wearing waist trainers as well.

She wrote, "The next project is to get my waist back to its pre-pregnancy size [or close to it, at least].

"So I have 2 waist trainers to help me hold everything together after all the rearranging of guts and road widening of hips."
