Avatar f tn Breastfed and I tried to eat healthy but yea that was hard especially since thanksgiving was just a few days away lol but honestly it depends on your body some girls can eat healthy and exercise but it takes them a while to lose weight but some girls can excerise one time and lose 40 pounds hahaha
Avatar f tn You burn a extra 700 + calories a day by breastfeeding if you are maintaining a healthy diet while breastfeeding then it is very possible to be dropping the excess baby weight at a faster time
Avatar f tn My cousin was but her doctor told her she needs to stop because she is losing weight fast due to lack of nutrients but if you are gaining weight and not feeling weak you should be fine.
Avatar f tn no dont take that while your brest feeding what suppose he starts to lose weight or his bowel movement are out of control...DONT DO THAT!!! you want to lose weight change what your eating but dont take a diet pill what ever you take it goes through the breast milk...No dont you make me scared..change your diet...
3360193 tn?1365871889 Yes I haven't given birth yet (due in 2 days - woohoo) , but any mommas out there who know any decent ways to lose baby weight after baby has been born? For the first 6 weeks I know I won't really be doing very much except my usual daily 4 mile walk with the dog (and the pram), and I'll also be breastfeeding. But I do wanna lose my baby weight and a little bit extra as well.
6520484 tn?1399082398 But I still have 20lbs of fat that I put on during the pregnancy. Just wondering if anyone had success in losing the baby weight? I could use some pointers. I already eat healthy and all I drink is water and milk, no juice or pop or anything. I'm too tired to exercise (with Two week old baby and all). Anyone do anything to lose the weight that really worked?
7989976 tn?1403493624 Losing weight is 80 percent diet and 20 percent exercise. I plan on losing a lot of weight ehen thr baby gets here... this isnt for everyone but I will be changing my life style to paleo dieting. Basically you can only eat meats and veggies no carbs. Look into it... but thsts not a good diet if u choose to breast feed... best of luck!
Avatar f tn breastfeeding is a wonderful way to help loose weight, once bub is here everytime you put baby to breast make sure you have a full glass of water, and eating healthily as well will help :)
Avatar n tn I've been struggling with my weight since I got injured a couple years ago and started packing on the pounds. I did lose 7lbs, but unfortunately gained them back. I'm 5'3/4", 17, and 131lbs. I want to be 110 and am having a lot of trouble losing weight. I'm an emotional eater/ eat when i'm bored. I know those bad habits need to stop! How long do you think it'll take me to lose 21lbs? I play soccer 2-3x a week; that's my exercise each week.

Avatar f tn Every time your baby eats, while breastfeeding, you burn five hundred calories. I didn't lose weight while breastfeeding, due to having hypothyroidism after being pregnant, but a lot of women do lose a lot of if not all their baby weight.
199373 tn?1270487632 I gave birth 2 months ago, and I'm losing weight at a semi-slow pace (I'm breastfeeding so I cannot overdo it). I ordered an elliptical, and plan to workout on it for atleast 30 mins a day. I seem to be losing well in all places but my face and arms. Any advice on how to trim these two areas? Or should I just be patient?

Avatar f tn t gained that much weight so far with this pregnancy, but I was over weight before this pregnancy (this is baby #4) and have a tendacy to have trouble losing weight or even gaining a little after the pregnancy.
8762956 tn?1406304757 What losing weight pills can I take while breastfeeding ot what can I eat that will make me lose weight and my belly fat
Avatar n tn My first I started at 140 ended at 190 so 50lb weight gain only ever went down to 165. 6 years later with this one I started at 168 I went to 194 so 26lb weight gain now I'm 175 and I'm 12 weeks post pardum and I am breastfeeding. I lost the first 19 lbs in the first 2 weeks so 10 weeks now and haven't lost an ounce.
Avatar f tn I have read about that. Being too skinny or too heavy can affect conception. Honestly though, these are just theories. When trying to have a baby, you feel like the moon and starts have to line up perfectly, don't you? If you feel your weight may hinder pregnancy, I'd try to lose some of it. Add exercise into your daily life and begin cutting calories and eat healthy.
1715474 tn?1318189449 ] Second, like the previous poster said, losing weight while pregnant is harmful to the baby because as you get rid of the fat deposits, toxins are released into the body being harmful to the baby. What you can do is just make wise eating choices. I was overweight when I became pregnant and since I was very scared of getting much bigger I cut out all soda and juices, sugary sweets and chips, and it helped.
Avatar f tn i was wondering if anyone else out there has trouble losing weight with hypthyroidism?
Avatar f tn My little guy came early due to high blood pressure and protein in my urine he was breech so I had to have a c section but since I wasn't ready to give birth no contractions no leaking boobs nothing I'm having trouble breastfeeding does anyone have advice on what I can do to stimulate more milk
Avatar f tn Dispite a healthy diet and lifestyle, I was having trouble losing ANY weight, and had NO energy.I was also having trouble conceiving. tests showed hyperinulin. I took medication, and fell pregnant within 6 weks. dispite watching my diet and excercise I gained over 30kg during the pregnancy, and then a few more while breastfeeding (despite having NO time to eat much at all).I bought an expnsive "assisted diet program" nothing. I stopped breastfeding, and went to a weight loss clinic.
