Re: breastfeeding, how long did it take you?
honestly it has taken me 3 1/2 months! but i also gained 50 pounds during my pregancy!! plus i have not exercised or anything so i am sure it would have came off sooner. i do eat healthy since i am breastfeeding but sadly moderation is not in my vocabulary! lol! i am back down to pre-pregnancy size now (120lbs). i noticed that it was not steady weight loss at all. it was a little here and a little there. once i reach 135 the scales seemed to all be stuck but within only 4-5 weeks i was down to 125 without trying or even thinking about it. i was perfectly happy being bigger so i was not even in a hurry to lose the weight until i stopped breastfeeding. i did notice though that when she would go through a growth spurt that i would drop around 5 pounds in a few days!lol! all that comfort nursing is good for something!lol! i would try not to worry about it. i know its easier said that done but honestly i did not think about it very often and even went out and bought some bigger clothing and was planning on selling most of my old prepregnancy clothes but now i am selling the bigger clothes and keeping my prepregnancy ones! it wont happen overnight for most people, too bad we cant all be like Paula! that would be nice and she is incredibly lucky with great genes! lol! congrats to both of you ladies for keeping your weight gain low! your weight will come off in no time! congrats on the baby and good luck!!
