Doctor's Orders

Tuesday, February 09, 2010

:( Noah had his 4 month check up today and had only gained 1 lb. in the past two months. The doctor immediately asked me how often and how much I was feeding him (breastmilk) and then, what I was eating. I didn't tell him the truth that I sometimes skip meals because Noah needs me or that I am trying to limit my calories some so I can lose some of this nasty weight. He told me I needed more fat in my diet, good fat of course. Try telling a new mom who is trying to lose the baby weight to add more fat in her diet! I am so frustrated right now. I feel like if I keep trying to lose weight, he won't be getting all the good stuff he needs but I so badly want to get this weight off. We are not having any more children until I lose the weight from this one and then some additional weight from before. I'm just so mad at the moms who shrank down to their pre-pregnancy size or smaller while breastfeeding. I'm stuck and I still have at least ten pounds to get back to pre-pregnancy weight. I have 40 pounds until I get to my ideal weight.

    he's only 4 months old...don't be too hard on yourself...you'll get there...but for right now...do what's best for him and what the doctor is telling you....you'll lose those 40lbs. Maybe not right now...but you will. I learned this lesson too...being a mom means putting your kids first and what you want comes after....hope he's doing better...have a great week!!!
