I didn't have much luck with the breast feeding weight loss either. There was a bunch of weight loss in the first 2 weeks postpartum (20 lbs), but then it stopped. And then I gained 7 lbs back while I was on maternity leave. Argh! Now that baby is 14 weeks, I'm back at work full time, and I'm 11 lbs above my pre-pregnancy weight. All together I'm 31 lbs from my goal, which is the healthy weight I was when I got married in 2009. I'm confident we can do this, but sometimes I'd really just rather take a NAP instead of do my "dancing off the inches" videos. Or just order pizza instead of a healthy home-cooked meal. I'm so glad I have this group of moms to talk to!

You can do it!! We are at about the same weight and goal right now, so maybe we can do it together!

I've found it really helps to find treats that are "resistable". Little Debbies are not! I would scarf 5! But frozen grapes, juice pops, or yogurt kept in freezer might be able to satisfy that sweet tooth without sending you on a binge. (I'm talking to myself, because we need to restock the chocolate chips,and I need to decide if I should just go without!)

He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it.

Anything is achievable! Hard work, hard work, hard work!
It's not been the case for me either, the weight loss coming naturally from breastfeeding. I still weigh what I weighed 6 weeks postpartum. And my son is now 16 months old. Bleurgh.

Baby steps. We can do this together!

Slow and steady wins the race.

Hey there! I have a 14 week old and have 18 lbs to lose to hit pre-pregnancy weight and then another 15 lbs to go to be "happy" with my body. I am also terrible at eating great and I breast feed. I lost 26 lbs in the first 6 weeks home after having my LO, but now I have just been maintaining. Everyone says when you breast feed that the weight just falls off.....well that has not been the case for me so far!! Hope to get my motivation back with eating healthy and exercising more to lose this weight.....Good luck!! We're in the same boat!!

Hello! I'm a 30 year old first time mom to my beautiful 10 week old. I've found the breastfeeding helped with the initial weight loss but I'm kind of stuck right now. I'm hungry all the time and sadly have never been a great one with healthy foods. Example...today I had a Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pie, SpaggettiO's w/ meatballs, and Peanut Butter M&Ms. Great diet for a nursing mom. Ugh. I'm hoping once I start tracking my food again and start some daily cardio I can get my motivation back.

Pre-Pregnancy- 158
Pregnant- 182 (gain of 24)
Now- 171
Goal- 145

Hoping 26 pounds is achievable! emoticon

Working off some baby weight and toning for my wedding in Oct 2012!
