Just had a baby

I just had a baby and now I want to lose weight. I wasn't really small before I had my daughter, but I want to be now. trying to stay motivated and not give up like i've done so many times before.

Are you breastfeeding? I don't know how old your babe is....mine is 9 months. With breastfeeding alone (occasionally walking, no dieting) I lost all my baby weight by 8 months. Yep, it was slow...but it was easy...and now it's gone. I have more to lose as I was chubby pre-baby, but the breastfeeding has been a HUGE blessing for me!

You were me! And I am thinner now post babies. It took me a couple of years and a lot of dedication but I did it. I logged faithfully here every day. Are you in a group?

Get yourself and your baby as much sleep as possible! I felt like I was 100 years old until I was getting good sleep. Be kind to yourself and know you'll be a much better mom if you take the time for yourself to eat well and exercise. And if you're like me and don't find nursing melts the pounds away - don't feel badly!!
