Can't lose weight
I breastfed exclusively for 4 months. My baby is now 4 months and 3 weeks and I give him formula twice a day with his cereal. I have been unable to lose the baby weight and I think it is because of breastfeeding.
This is my 5th baby and I didn't breastfeed any of my other babies past 3 months. I love bonding with my baby but am very frustrated that I can't lose weight. I am afraid I will get depressed about it. Any suggestions or advice??
OVER WEIGHT TWO YEARS LATER
by almost giving up
I was 155 when I got prego.Was 223 at full term.was 212 after I had her.And was back up to 228 at her 5 day check up.
Since then been up to 233 to 221.I changed my diet and started to go to the gym.I've eaten out twice sinse she was born all organic fresh foods at home.
Still nursing at 20 months and still cant get any weight off.my Doc. says its my food but my friend weighed the same and we both did the same diet and went to the gym together and she lost 20 pounds the fist month.I dont know what to do. I also work 12 hour shifts as a health care worker and am lifting people and on my feet most of the day 100 hours every 2 weeks.
I feel at a loss and it seems like my Doc thinks My hubby and I must be lying to her about what I eat cause all I get from them is do weight watchers.
Has anyone else not lost any weight while nursing or gained it?
MY kid nurses 2 to 4 times a day on average.Sometime more.Anyone have any ideas other than just eat healthy and drink water stuff I already know and tried and do would be great.thanks ladies.
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!!!
Cant lose weight while breastfeeding
I started off 105 5'3 and by the end of my pregnancy I was 148.
I lost about 20 pounds the first month which was all fluids, because everything is measuring the same!
I've been breastfeeding for 4 months and plan to for as long as my daughter wants.
It's hard though because I know my body is just hanging on to the extra weight til I wean. I eat soo healthy..its not my fault : /
weight loss after pregnancy!
losing weight after pregnancy appears to be a great obstacle after the baby's birth.. though the first two months pass on good but afterwards... but actually even before that people start looking at the excessive fat lying around your belly which makes you conscious about it
the thing that matters the most is that you want to look the hottest and sexiest girl in the world for your man!
