I have a baby girl that is almost 4 months old, and am still breastfeeding her so i'm a little scared to "diet" when I had my son my milk dried up in 3 months and was no longer able to nurse him and that just killed me. I don't want that to happen this time. Instead of counting calories I'm just trying to make good choices, to stop eating sugar and junk. I want my milk to be the best it can be for my baby, and i feel better when I eat better. If I happen to lose some pounds that would be totally awesome! but I've heard that somtimes your body hangs on to extra fat while nursing just incase it needs it. I am getting tired of haveing no clothes that fit, and I haven't really tried to behave myself since getting pregnant... I have been eating whatever I want. so time to make a change.

slow and steady win the race:)

Nikkercole, I am in the same boat. My baby is 3.5 months and I am having the hardest time getting motivated. I am still nursing so I am nervous to diet too much but I am going to start following spark people diet as of yesterday. I am starting back to work on Jan 3rd so I am hoping I can work running back into my life now that I will have more of a daily routine. Its so hard to give up time with her to workout thought, not sure how I am going to do that.

Well it's only been 4 months so you're just starting to get YOUR body back. Before now it was really just a vessell for your little one. And, if you're nursing, your hormones are still going crazy, too. I nursed for a year (just stopped on the 2nd) and some women just hang on to some weight so that their body can continue to produce.
It's just one of those things that takes a bit of time but you'll get your old self back. Let me know if you need anything.

Hi everyone,

I have a gorgeous 4 month old baby girl and am stuggling with getting back to my old self. I was 140 before having her and gained 50 pds of baby weight! Sad part is that i only lost 10 pds after having her so i am currently 180 and feeling NOTHING like myself...i am having a hard time finding the time and motivation to change my eating habits and adding exercise in my life all while still having time and energy to spend with her....hoping for a great group here!
