Breastfeeding, and trying to lose weight?
Im 8 wks pp ...gained 67 lbs in the pregnancy, Im down 38 of those pounds at the moment. Lost 3 lbs last week....
Im just curious who else is using this app to lose pregnancy weight and is breastfeeding? What has been your approach?
***Ive been pushing to complete at least 30 minutes a day of exercise, resting on Sundays and just "watching" what I eat not cal counting.
I kind of agree with what youre saying...I started working out at 2wks pp and my milk supply almost completely stopped. So I stopped working out, focused on my eating and focused on getting my milk back up. I didnt start back exercising until a week ago-when my doctor finally said it was "okay" to do so.
I want to lose the weight....but successfully breastfeeding is a huge priority of mine as well...thats why Im curious how others are doing it. So far Im still breast feeding exclusively and losing weight. I eat a lot of cals but mainly just clean eating....the exercise I think is whats helping with the weightloss since my cal consumptions high.
Well breast feeding naturally burns 500 call every time you feed so I've heard. My friend is skinnier than before she was pregnant and she doesn't do anything. Congrats on the baby
Hi!! Happy to hear your giving you're baby such a healthy start to life!! I have been breast feeding my son since he came into my life . He is almost a year! I started exercising at 6 months and if you consume enough caloried and your lo is eating at a regular intervals you should be fine ! And if you look at my work outs I do some hard ones :-) I am now thinner now than even before I got pregnant !! And still losing weight. But I eat ALOT! Almost every two hours I have to eat and my water intake is almost a gallon and a half. Just eat clean and keep taking your prenatals :-) Good luck Doll!! Keep it up ! Your Baby gets soo many benifits from what you give him!
Yayyyyy todays a great day...Im officially in the 170s!
From 220lbs in April to 178.4 lbs today....41lbs down, 29lbs to go until I hit goal weight!
I'm one of those women that breastfeeding has not helped me lose weight in fact I think it's hindered my weight loss because I feel so hungry ALL THE TIME! It looks like you're doing great though so just keep it up! I'm trying to get away from sugar and I've been eating clean and using while wheat for baking. There's a website a friend told me to look into it's called something like 100 days off clean eating, if you google it it's like the first link. She has tons of clean eating tips and recipes.
