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'll get there...but for right what's best for him and what the doctor is telling'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!!!
