Hi! I had my little guy about 2 months ago. I gained 36 lbs during pregnancy and have 23 lbs left to go before ppg weight and 43 lbs before my ultimate goal. It'll be awhile! I am nursing and really proud of myself, I gave up very quickly with my 2 daughters but I kept telling myself if I could have him drug free surely I could nurse!
I had lost 45 lbs on Ideal Protein prior to getting pg but that program is not healthy for nursing moms. I'm planning on eating clean, sticking to a 2000 calorie diet at this time and riding my bike and walking for exercise. With 3 kids 5 and under and a husband who works a lot it can be tough to exercise but losing weight starts in the kitchen!
Its been tough since those extra 23 lbs translates into being 3 pant sizes bigger. I've been having a hard time not beating myself up. Once a year of nursing is over if I'm not at the weight I'd like to be I'll use a plan I found on another site.
