That's what I like about Weight Watchers...they actually adjust the plan for breastfeeding mothers to account for the increased caloric intake necessary to maintain milk supply. And they never recommend losing more than 2 lbs per week...preferably 1lb per week for those breastfeeding.

My ideal weight is about 155...but that can be a little hard for me to maintain...though it is still my ultimate goal. That would equal a size 10 in jeans for me. I am currently too big for my size 14 jeans but the 16's that I have are a little big.

Pre-preggo weight: 160
Day I delivered weight: 210 (ouch!)
Current weight: 175

(I am 5'10)

I would like to fit in a fitness walk 3-4 times a week and do yoga at home 2-3 times a week.

I also need to: stop eating when I am full and not eat out of boredom...
drink more water...
make healthier choices, more veggies, less carbs/processed foods.

My biggest challenge will be when I go back to work. We get catered lunches every day that always include some sort of dessert. Since I am usually at work for 12 hours at a time, I find myself eating WAY TOO MUCH there---usually because I am bored or because the sweets totally call my name.

My whole body feels like a bowl full of jelly and I would like to be somewhat toned by summer----we take the kids swimming ALOT and I would like to feel comfortable with the rest of the "country club moms".

I have avoided this for as long as I can I'm 7 weeks pp and the weight is clearly not going to leave without a fight! So...

short term goals:
Back to pre pregnancy weight - need to lose about 17 lbs
Make better food choices
Drink more water

Long Term:
Back to my low end ideal weight. Not sure if I can maintain it, but I'll never know til I try! I'll need to lose about 25-30lbs to get there
Exercise and tone up the flab
