Sometimes I get so frustrated with weight loss. Am I the only one that doesn't lose weight easily breastfeeding?????? sometimes I feel like I am the only one. It takes serious work for me to lose the weight. most of my friends just look skinnier than ever 2 months after delivering a baby, and are all psyched b/c nursing helps them be so skinny. Meanwhile I'm sitting here plump and heavy, excercising and "starving" myself seeing no results. UGH!!!!! (I don't literally starve myself b/c I know i need to eat to produce enough milk, it's hard for me to find the balance of what I actually do need and what I don't need)
Sometimes it's so weird to think the changes my body has gone through, and I wonder if I will ever be able to fit into those jeans again. It seems like I will never be able to pull them up.
I do know, it's all about calorie intake and calorie burning, and it takes time and hard work. "give yourself a year" everyone says. But I say to them - what am i supposed to wear during that year, and how can I look at midsection. hahahaha. I also know to eat healthy (which I do most of the time) I only drink water and black coffee.
Someone out there please tell me that breastfeeding doesn't help them either. :) that will make me feel better. :)
Guess I just felt like venting :)
