Avatar f tn While breastfeeding I always kept an extra five or 10 pounds. As soon as I weened the baby I lost the weight. Maybe you don't have to go out of your way to lose that extra 10.
631359 tn?1222374022 I have lost some weight, but i am not losing anything at this point. I watch what I eat, i eat 5 times small meals, I am riding a bike 6 miles a day. I started out just walking but now i have started riding now. I also do weights a few times a week, 10 lbs weights doing 30 reps at a time upper arms and core. What am I doing wrong?
148057 tn?1231426991 I know many women praise breastfeeding for helping them lose weight, but have any of you struggled with losing weight while breastfeeding and instead lost it AFTER you were done breastfeeding? I lost all but 5 pounds that I had gained while pregnant. I am 5'8" and weighed 140 before I got pregnant - so I was very average in weight.

Avatar f tn less than 3 weeks after delivery, and im back at my prepregnancy weight(i gained 33lbs while preggo). im wondering how safe this is. on top of it all, i have no appetite. i take my prenatal pills, but im wondering if thats ok for the baby? he had a 2 week check up and he weighed a whole pound more from his weight when he was discharged, so im sure he's eating properly. in fact the dr mentioned that 1lb in 2 weeks may be too much gained.
Avatar m tn I used to just eat protein bars but I am trying to incorperate some food into it like a turkey burger..etc. Problem is that I am not losing weight at all if anything its goin up a little everyday!

Dog I have seen a nutritionist and she said that she does not know why I am not losing the weight. she also said that amytriptiline could be a possible cause. For past six weeks I am eating 1600 calories because my foot is hurting and i have got a tear in my hip. this has put an restriction on my activities. also i do not feel hungry but satiated with my food I forgot to mention that my height is 5'8". I am really frustrated with my weight. I never weighted this high.
Avatar f tn I know that if I restrict my calories more, I would lose faster. But I have lost 40+ pounds twice before and am affraid of just losing more muscle. So like I said I am trying to be healthier and strong for the long haul.
1364497 tn?1295149771 If your doctor isn't concerned, then you shouldn't be. Not all ladies gain weight in pregnancy. As long as everything health wise looks fine, that all should be well. Just make sure you're eating enough food, and healthy food.
Avatar n tn (people are saying maybe the weights are gaining muscle) I lose about 400 calories on the Skiing machine machine (to work both arms and lose weight), it says in about 35 minutes. sometimes I lose 500 in 42 minutes. Why am I not losing any weight? In fact I gained 3 lbs. Do I need to cut out weights completely? Do I need to go to the gym 5 days a week and do more cardio? I ate very few carbs for many years. I have just now started eating a few because evreyone says I should.
Avatar n tn Try introducing a 6-8oz bottle of infant formula during the day. You can give the bottle to her after meals (3-4ozs after each meal). This will be in addition to her breastfeeding and her meals to see if she gains any weight.
193609 tn?1292180293 Actually, nursing helped me lose weight more than ever. I lost an extra 15 lbs after I was done. I am 10 weeks pregnant now and still weight at least 10 lbs less than with my last pregnancy.
Avatar f tn Hey, I don't know if you TLC channel but I do and I was watching a show about women being pregnant and the woman on there had lost weight as well. I am 16 wks pregnant and I have lost weight as well about ten pounds but I am about 5'10 and weight about 180 and I wasnt sick. But just cutting out the junk food really helps and its unessary food you and the baby don't need.
Avatar f tn I weighed myself this morning and the scale read 105.5 pounds! So, what is going on!? I should be losing weight but instead I am steadily gaining. I am so confused about what is happening right now and I am beyond frustrated. By the way, I highly doubt my weight gain is due to increased muscle mass. It takes females a lot longer than a few weeks to gain enough muscle to account for weight gain especially while on a calorie deficit. I would appreciate any insightful tips.
Avatar f tn I am a 32 yrs old female, 5'4 beginning weight March 21, 2011 was 144.8. Current weight is 138.6. My goal weight is 125. I am very confused I have been eating btwn 1400-1500 calories daily. I drink btwn 96-140 oz of water daily. I ride my bike M-F for 30min. and M,W,F I do 3 reps of 20, pushups, crunches, squats, superman, (weights) arms extensions, back extensions, curls, and chest extensions.
Avatar n tn ) and have stopped taking Paxil about 3 weeks ago. I also have just began taking Hydroxycut for women. I do not understand why I am not losing weight. Last summer, I ran 2 miles 4-5 days a week and lost 15 pounds. What am I doing wrong? I am sweating profusely when on the elliptical and believe me, I am giving my heart a strong 30 minute workout. Could there be a medical reason why I am not losing any weight or seeing any noticable difference with all of the effort I am putting forth?
