Since having my newest baby, I am having real issues with losing weight. But its not just losing, it's gaining too.
I gave birth and lost 20 pounds while pregnant. Which was great, but then it came to a halt. I can eat whatever I want and I don't gain a pound, but if I diet I don't lose anything either.
At first I thought it was breastfeeding, and well it didn't work out anyway. So I haven't breast fed in over a month now. But its still that way. I lucked out where I lost these 4 pounds to fluctuate from my weight. I have no idea how I did it.
I eat whenever I am hungry right now, and am not calculating my calories. But when I do its over 1200 but under what I should eat to maintain weight. I go on walks with my son, I clean the house which is a work out itself. I just don't get it. I am trying to be very relaxed about it and gave myself little goals... like lose 3 pounds in a month. Well its been three weeks and my weight hasn't changed at all.
I haven't been cheating or anything either. And its really frustrating. I know I should start calorie counting. But the second I do I am STARVING and can't stop thinking about food. So I am really just making healthy choices.
I just don't know why I am not losing. It makes me want to just drown myself in food, because hey I won't gain either. But I still keep holding on to that glimpse of hope that I will wake up and be down another 4 pounds like I was once. Although it is very hard :(
I feel better, I have more energy. My wedding rings fit again. My pants are baggy. I just wish the scale would help me out a little. But I guess it takes time after having a baby.
