Hi all! My lo is six months and i stopped.losing weight around three months, though in that time i dropped 40 pounds. I had felt really tired, and my thyroid is at a 9 (tsh). I'm currently on synthroid trying to fix that but considering desicated thyroid instead. Anyways, I've lost most of the weight i gained while pregnant, but o started at 210. I'm hoping to get down to 160 before the next baby.

Is calorie counting the only safe way to lose?

I'm not sure the safest way to lose the weight. Counting calories and not eating empty ones like sugars and fats is the best.

I'm having trouble finding a diet for myself that doesn't affect the baby's belly. Dairy, beans, and lettuce should be removed from my diet to help the baby's gas problems. Now the issue is finding filling things that are healthy...cause the pediatrican even said to watch out for nuts and allergies with them :(
