Okay, I have meticulously kept track of my calories now for almost 3 weeks as I figured I had to be going waaaayyy overboard somewhere in order for me to have not been losing any weight. I had my fifth baby 8 1/2 months ago. I weigh the exact same now as what I did a week after delivery. I weighed about 10 pounds less than what I do now at about 2 months post partum (which was a rapid weight loss w/o trying), but gained it all back in less than two weeks. I still eat what I did before pregnancy. Why am I not losing? Why haven't I lost?? After tracking my calories meticulously, I eat between 1500 (one day only)- 2100 (two days) calories, with the most consistent (15 days out of 20) being 1800 (give or take 50 cals). I am nursing. I am 30 (yep count 'em!) pounds over my pre-pregnancy weight. Anyone know what the heck is going on?? If I eat more calories, I gain
I am really starting to become depressed about this. I am at such a loss. Can anyone chime in here please?
