Losing the baby weight!

Over the past five years I've been in the range of 140lbs to 174 pounds. Let me preface this by saying I've never been what someone would call thin.

I'm now a 5th grade teacher. I just had a little boy, and I'm trying to get down to 145lbs. Currently, I'm exclusively breastfeeding so I don't want to lose too much too fast. One pound a week..... I got this!

Current: 158
Pre-Pregnancy Weight: 155
Goal Weight: 140

Wow! Congrats on your new baby boy! That is awesome!!! I wondered where you'd been! :-)

I breastfed, too, so I know the worry of dieting and messing up your supply. Just remember, you probably will burn around 500 calories a day by breastfeeding alone, so you can still eat a normal amount of food and the weight will still come off.

If you ever need any breastfeeding advice, feel free to ask. I was a nervous wreck as it was my first time (bottle fed my daughter), but I asked my sister-in-law a ton of questions. I managed to do it for 13 months, but I didn't work. She breastfed all of hers (she has 3 boys) and she is a teacher, too, so she managed to do it for at least a year with each one while working. Hopefully you can, too.

I love the family pic, too. You, your husband, and your sweet baby look like such a happy family. I wish you all the best, girlie!
