Am I all alone

Ok, before you get all judgemental on me let me just preface this whole post by saying, yes I know most of what I say here isn't true and I need to have patience . . .

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 :)

I did not feel like BF made the weight just drop off quickly! I really don't have anything to tell you that you don't already know. it was definitely a year before I felt like my old self was back. to me I thought, when I really finish having kids I'll get serious about getting my body back, cuz really, it doesn't make too much sense if you're going to be preggo again, right? :-) don't stress about it, eat well, allow yourself grace, and the occasional chocolate! :)

I never lost the main part of the weight until I stopped breast feeding. Its only now that when I try that anything happens and Zoey is three.Hang in there, I know several womenjust like us. Plus I think you look great!

I didn't nurse, Jess, so I have no idea how that plays into things, but I do know you give a lot of effort and you had been back to "normal" easily before you were pregnant with Landon, so it will come. As we've always said to you, "just be patient." I guess that never ends - the need to have patience!:-)
