HI, I'm nursing my 4th (2 month old) and still have weight to loose from my first (10YO)
I find myself to be much hungrier and thirstier when nursing, I'm hoping to start keeping a food journal to keep track of all the calories.
Back to the forum after baby #5!
1st mini-goal - 5%
2nd mini-goal - under 200 lbs
3rd mini goal -15%
There is a huge difference between knowing what to do and actually doing it!

Hi Everyone,
I am about 7 weeks pregnant and keeping it a secret is torture, so at least I can talk about it anonymously on these forums! I am a "featherweight" who recently lost 17 pounds. I am trying not to gain weight in these first weeks, but it is really hard to tell what is going on with my body. I've had it pretty easy with symptoms so far (boobs hurt just a little; feel like I have permanent PMS) and due to bloating (ugh) my weight fluxes about 5 pounds depending on how much salt I ate the day before.

I am excited and SO ready for a baby. I want to know how many of you lost weight quickly while breastfeeding. I have heard from friends that the weight just "falls off." Other people say you are so hungry it makes it harder to lose...

**Waving to Everyone**

Im sooo glad I found this site. I just had a baby 21 days ago and I also have a 15month old. Im nursing the baby and hoping to drop 50 pounds at the same time.
Im counting calories, toting 2 kids around and excercising a little in the mean time.

Prior to delivering my 2 baby girls I weighed 180 pounds. I lost weight for my wedding and dropped down to 145 pounds ...then came the babies. Im hoping to get to 150pounds within the next few months. Keep your fingers crossed

Hey everyone, I was on a diet till I found out a couple months ago that I am pregnant with #2. I'm 20 weeks now and it's already getting hard on me. I haven't gained any weight, actually lost and just now started gaining what I lost back. It's already getting hard to breathe though.
Goal on hold for now...expecting #2
1st goal
