Pregnant - Nursing - Medifast 5 and 1 while nursing a toddler

Hi Moms!
I'm cross posting from "Medifast" board.
I'm 4 weeks on the Medifast 5/1 lean and green plan and have lost 10.5 lbs., 7.5 pounds the first week and about a 1lbs each week thereafter. Yay! I'm doing the 5 and 1 plan, around 1000-1100 calories a day. My 2 year old still nurses 1 time a day and 1-2 times at night. I've found very little discussion or comments regarding nursing a toddler and being on Medifast. It's had no impact on my supply which is good. Can anyone comment on if I should be doing anything else to get the most weight loss benefit from the plan? I'm not hungry in the least, measuring everything for my L&G, have been drinking all my water and not cheating at all. It seems to me I should be losing 2 lbs a week versus the 1.
Thank you! Lisa

I am doing the same, For me I think my supply has tanked, but I don't care since I'd like to wean. Nursing actually messes with my metabolism, so I feel like it may actually be slowing me down. I'm only nursing 2x a day now though. I did medifast before my pregnancy and lost faster
