I’m just over 5 months pp but I’m not going to be losing all the baby weight until I stop pumping :/

Whoever said that breastfeeding will help you drop all the weight was either a genetically engineered mutant or a liar!  Hah.  I tried getting on MyFitnessPal & logging in my calories and I lost output in a hurry.  I suppose for now I have to pick between EITHER my pre-pregnancy jeans OR providing breastmilk for DD, but not both.

Anyway, I’m definitely excited to participate in accountabilty & support!  I’m training for a half marathon and I try to eat reasonably healthy.  I know that my pre-pregnancy body might be a ways off, but I can still be really health and have a high level of fitness 🙂

@DaneLady:  My best fiend loses SO much weight now that she’s breastfeeding. She’s thinner now than before she was pregnant! I hope I’m like that, but I’m not counting on it. I know everybody is different.

I love that you started this feed! Exactly what I need! I have a 21 month old and my youngest will be 3 months on the 9th so I getting added to my SO’s gym membership on the 9th so I can take them to the gyms day care. (SO already takes our 21 month old on Saturdays and we found a gym that we love and trust the day care at).

i have finally lost the baby weight and am back to my pre pregancy weight but don’t have my pre pregnancy body :/ my butt is completely flat and saggy 🙁 and stomach is completely flat (2 c sections). As excited as I am about being able to work out I’m really stressed out about it. I know it sounds dumb but I’m really insecure about how out of shape I am and don’t even want to go to the gym because dont know where to start. We can’t afford for me to get a personal trainer, if anyone has any advice on how to start working out and stay motivate I would be very grateful!

i am 6 1/2 months post partum and although i am now weighing in at less than i was pre pregnancy i still have a horrible pooch which i would like to get rid of.

My tummy muscles seperated pretty badly whilst i was pregnant and i still have a 1 1/2 finger gap between the muscles so crunches and sit ups are out of the question. how can i tone this one little bit without losing anymore weight!!

For what its worth i bottlefed out of choise and i found my weight dropped pretty quickly but i was very slim to begin with.

I was 125lbs pre-preg, and am currently 26 weeks and about 140.

I’m due in February, and I will DEFINITELY be back on here! I lost 51lbs in the 2 yars before getting KU, so it’s KILLING me to see these numbers on the scale again!
