Advice: Calories while breastfeeing
I used to be a regular on the 3FC board last year and stopped posting once I got pregnant. Now that my DD is 3 months old I am ready to drop these last 20 pounds. I am breastfeeding and I've read that you should eat about 500 calories more per day. When I started counting calories I lost weight starting at around 1,800 calories and then eventually dropping down once I started losing and stalling. Should I aim for 2,300 calories per day? It just seems like an awful lot...I remember thinking the same thing about 1,800 calories when I started all of this!! I guess I can just try it and see what happens. I walk a few times a week, too...I just don't want my supply to start to decrease because I'm barely pumping enough at work for her during the day as it is.

Being fat is hard. Losing weight is hard. Maintaining your weight is hard. Pick your hard.
