My Mood:
Weight loss & Breastfeeding

Lately I've felt terrible about my weight. I lost weight while pregnant, and then gained a bunch in fluid when I got pre-eclampsia. Still, once DS was born, I was 29 pounds LESS that I was when I got pregnant.

DS was 4 months old yesterday, and I'm about 12 pounds away from being the same weight I was when I got pregnant. I'm hungry all the time, and I've tried fruits and vegetables, and they just don't seem to fill me up. When I'm hungry, I don't want to eat because of my weight. But then I feel terrible for not eating, because I keep thinking that if my body is hungry, it obviously needs it to feed DS. So I feel bad if I don't eat, but I feel horrible if I do.

This is such a change for me. I've always been overweight, but I've never ate very much (I apparently have a really slow metabolism). Now I'm wanting to eat all the time, and steadily gaining because of it. I don't know what to do, and I break down in tears every time I'm hungry because I just don't want to eat.
