Awesome this really makes me so happy to hear :) I have been so active my whole pregnancy and I'm so grateful for having the strength. After my mom passed i went from a decent weight for my height 180 to 240lbs. I am very weight proportioned but let myself go after her passing. I really want to get back down to that weight! Hopefully breastfeeding will knock me a little closer to my weight goal. Ill be planning my wedding once i get back to myself :) Thank yall
I gained over 50lbs with my first lost all but 5lbs from bfing (no diet or exercise) but gained 20 back after I weaned after a yr. Ur body burns like 500+ some calories a day just making food for ur baby I honestly don't know why anyone wouldn't bf if they can
I lost alot of my pregnancy weight when i breastfed the last time but only could do it for around 5 or 6 wks as i found it very hard and demanding and could not get into a proper feeding routine. This time i will try again, but worried as i am actually about 3 times bigger than i was the last time so id say ive alot to lose.but at least this time i know what to expect with the breastfeeding and adamant to do it for longer.so hopefully all will work out. Also drinking raspberry leaf tea every day a few wks before labour and a few wks after helps strengthen ur uterus muscles which means they will contract much better back to normal size after birth
Thanks girl i appreciate it :)
I lost thirty pounds in the first six weeks, but I also put on sixty during my pregnancy. I lost all my pregnancy weight by my daughter's first birthday. Sometimes breastfeeding can cause you to hang onto a bit of extra weight until you stop but not always. Good luck mama.
