I agree...start slow! Your best bet is probably to put baby in a stroller and start taking walks around the neighborhood. That was you're getting exercise and baby is getting some fresh air!
How are you doing w/ eating? The thing that helps me the most is to plan my meals in advance. That way I know what I'm going to eat for the day and I don't let myself get too hungry and start scrounging around for something to eat...which never ends well.
Are you breastfeeding? If so, you don't want to eat less than 1800 calories/day. If not, I think the lowest you want to go is 1200 calories/day.
Hope that helps a little bit!
Oh, and welcome to the team!!!
