Re: How in the world do you lose the baby weight?

Sooooo, ColdStone after lunch with the office (Mexican!) probably isn't helping me reach my goal . . .

Way to go on the awesome Sunday prep and organized fridge! Best I can do so far is to prep a bunch of "nearly ready to eat" toddler friendly meals for DS. But that leaves DH and I asking the "what's for dinner" tonight question.

Breastfeeding has been the best thing ever for losing weight for me, I was back to pre-pregnancy weight at 2 months postpartum, but my aunt lost nothing until she stopped nursing... It has more to do with your body than with anything else...

Re: How in the world do you lose the baby weight?

Hang in there. I was told recently that it took 9 months to put the weight on and it can take up to 9 months or more to take it off. My DD is six months and I am just now starting to really lose the weight. I just stopped trying. Being a first time mom I was just expecting for the pounds to come right off since I was BF. I was so naive. I just decided to eat when I was hungry, which is all the time, and stop focusing on the weight. I focus on the little person God gave me and keeping my little family happy. I have lost 6 lbs in the last month. Keep it up and don't get discouraged you have support.

Re: How in the world do you lose the baby weight?

Yeah, I've gained 10lbs since my low after birth 10 mos ago. Argh! I am just so hungry all the time, I don't know how on earth anyone loses weight while BF. LOL With my 3rd, the weight almost melted off once she weaned (at age 3, LOL) I really don't want to wait that long this time......

And wow on the fridge posted above.....I need to do that!
