Well, after having a C-section I was really busy sitting around and breast feeding; I'm sure you can relate to that too! After being able to eat sweets again, I did just that! Luckily, because of the breastfeeding, I wasn't gaining weight even though I was eating a lot of dessert. I tried keeping the carbs down for the rest of the day though. Once I was totally back to normal after the c-section, I just felt motivated to lose weight. And as you can see, I still haven't lost very much, even after 5 months, but I don't have any sweets in the house anymore. And I think I had an advantage by not gaining any weight during pregnancy, because that probably would have just discouraged me. I'm still trying to make it a habit to follow the same eating plan I had to follow while pregnant. Good luck to you! 1933 days ago
First and foremost, congrats on your new little one!! How exciting!! I was over anxious to lose my baby weight after my second child was born in October. I kept on trying to start exercising and my body kept telling me to take it easy. I started slowly and basically just counted calories and exercised. I did Jillian Michaels' 30 day shred which really seemed to kick my metabolism in gear. I gained 70 lbs. with both of my pregnancies, but the weight seems to be coming off faster after my second. My grandmother told me it's because I am chasing after my preschooler all the time on top of everything else. 1934 days ago

Hi! Having a baby is a good reason to gain weight. Things are good here. I'm losing again what I lost before. I've struggled for quite a while but am finally getting consistent again. 1934 days ago
