Breast feeding Twins for 8 months striving for 11 months - will weight loss continue
Hello! I was at 205 when I got pregnant with my twins. I delivered two healthy babies at 38 1/2 weeks weighing 217.
I lost 7 pounds in the beginning of the pregnancy because everything made me sick. Now, after breast feeding for 8 months - I weigh 170 pounds!
I've maintained this weight for the past three months. I also workout 4 days (5 when I can) doing circuit training and cardio. I watch what I eat and count carbs because I developed gestational diabetes during my pregnancy.
My question is how do I lose an additional 15 pounds so that when I stop breast feeding any weight gain will keep me between 165-170. This is a healthy weight for me considering I haven't been this size in about 7 years.
I seriously need some GOOD advice because I want to stay healthy and active for my kids ( I have a four year old too). I plan to train for a marathon soon ( my goal is to run it shortly after the twins turn 1 in July).
I'm trying to be strong and turn away from my "plain cheeze its" craving and "tall cafe mocha with 2 equals from Starbucks. Please provide any advice you can. Also, I pump anywhere from 38-48 ounces (depending on how many times I pump with nursing) a day.
Thank you so much!!!
