That's just not working!

Monday, May 27, 2013

UGH! Today, I stepped on the scale and noticed it is on a slightly upward trajectory. UNCOOL scale. UNCOOL! So I decided that at 4 weeks post partum I would start counting calories and making sure that I am within a healthy range. (It would be unwise to start now as I am still building up milk supply). I tracked a few days in a row, and I have been eating more than 2300 calories a day. NO WONDER I'm gaining weight! Yuck.

I'm not on metformin since I'm breastfeeding- so my body is a bit topsy turvy. But I will not let this derail my weightloss goals.

I need to find my new happy place for calories now that I'm making milk, but I can say it's not 2300 calories :)

The count down begins :)
Right, so

    Hey Just a suggestion-you might look into Weight Watchers. They have a program for breast feeding mommies. I did it after my first and it worked wonderfully and my milk supply stayed up. Also increasing water will help with, not only, milk supply but also with the content. I bf all three of mine for a year each. If someone else suggested this I am sorry. I dindn't have time to read all the comments. I stopped by to check in on you and saw this post and thought I would comment.
