Trouble losing weight while nursing

Common Questions and Answers about Trouble losing weight while nursing


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 n tn t lose weight while i was nursing, i was the same way with my daugther. i stopped nursing in october, right around the time i went to a weight loss clinic to help with my diet and started seeing a nutritionist. i also work full time, i try to walk as much as possible. i walk during my 30 min lunch.
Avatar f tn I agree with grannieannie -- don't take phentermine while nursing........ in fact, I doubt seriously that you will even be able to find a reputable doctor who will prescribe it, since you are breastfeeding. You say you are counting calories, so I have to ask what types of food you are eating. You need to eat foods that take longest to break down in the body -- lean protein, high fiber. The longer it takes your food to be digested, the longer you will fell full.
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.

Avatar f tn Heyy everyone I am a 23 yeas old and I am havering trouble losing weight I have been very over weight for some years now I started gaining my weight because of the medication I take but I no longer take then I had been on them for a while but not anymore. The the weight has stayed on over the years. I am desperately trying to loose weight but excercising is hard for me. Any ideas of what to eat? How to go about losing weight? How to eat healthy?
Avatar n tn Have you talked to your doctor about a weight loss plan? Not only can your doctor make sure that you're healthy enough for regular physical activity, but she/he can also suggest nutrition options and workouts that suit your lifestyle and level of fitness. Talking with your doctor gives you an outline and someone to report your success to in order to stay motivated. Plan long and short term goals to help you stay motivated and see results.
Avatar f tn She was fed hay and 16% feed while pregnant and still began to lose her own weight. The baby was born very fat and healthy, now 5 months later, the baby continues to be a chubby one, but the Mama has gone down severely. Her hips and ribs are showing. We are feeding her a 14% feed mix twice a day along with hay and rye grass. She started falling about a week ago and requires help getting up with a tractor and straps.
Avatar n tn s keeping you from losing weight. By eating regular meals, you can better incorporate a mix of vegetables, protein, whole grains and healthy fats into your diet. Snacking, typically, ends up being fruit, candy bars, crackers, sandwiches, chips and all the things that aren't so good for you and tend to make you, either, gain or hold onto weight.
676912 tn?1332812551 I went up 2 sizes both pregnancies..and even though I lost the weight in most places my boobs have not gone down, despite no longer breastfeeding...I went from a 36D-38DDD with Kahlan and a 38DDD-38EE with Grey. I order mine from motherhood too..really good..their nursing tanks are also superior in my experience.
Avatar f tn Hey all, I am getting married in July and currently weight 140lbs. I gained about 10 lbs. In nursing school and would like to drop 10-15 pounds by July 2014 for my wedding. Does anyone have any tips?
Avatar f tn I'm 20 weeks. I'd lost 15lbs at one time. I've gained back 5 lbs but my baby's just fine. Kicking as I type.
676912 tn?1332812551 What's ok/not ok to do while BFing? I really would like to start losing all this extra weight, I want to drop 40 lbs. I know it'll take a while, and I'm gonna start a workout routine when I get my ab rocker, BUT I don't know what's ok. I don't want anything I do to affect being able to BF. I'd rather be overweight and BF than be back in my "skinny" jeans. I'm trying to start eating healthier (as I eat pizza, lol), but how much should I be eating a day?
11361691 tn?1433948582 Anybody else not putting on weight like they "should"? I am 20 weeks and between losing and gaining and losing and gaining again, I have put on 1 pond from my pre pregnancy weight. At my last appointment the doctor said he was growing normally but I am worried about me... I think I am eating enough...
Avatar f tn I had a huge issue with my weight at the start of my pregnancy. I'm 5ft 1in also and weighed 13 1/2 stone before. I started drinking 2-4 litres of water a day as well as keeping track of what I ate and I managed to lose 2-3 stone. I'm now 35 weeks and just hit 13 1/2 stone so I know that while I'm losing weight my baby is gaining. Thinking about your weight too much can not only stress you out but your baby also.
Avatar f tn I was wondering if any of you have successfully lost weight or stayed the same while pregnant. They only thing I plan on doing as far as losing weight is to eat healthy foods and not to overeat like I tend to do and to also excercise. I know if Im prego I shouldnt overdo myself on exercise but light exercise and walking wont hurt! :) I just would like to minimize the chance of getting gestational diabetes or preclampsia while prego! :) Thoughts, opinions, concerns, etc are all welcome!!!
Avatar f tn After baby you can loose weight pretty easy. I've been back to prepregnacy weight w/in 4 months. I've nursed my last 2 babies, nursing helps burn calories. However, if nursing U don't want to diet. Don't take any diet pills. Plus when nursing you really do feel hungry. The best thing to do is eat healthy. Protein, veggies & fruit. Workout, but don't over do it. If U workout too much/hard it will effect Ur milk supply as well as dieting or eating less.
