OK so I have been working my a** off and eating right, I have lost about 9 lbs and about 5 in, but I am not seeming to loose any weight around my belly. everywhere else but not my belly. I still have not dropped a pant size. This is so frustrating. Yes I am breast-feeding still and I'm not wanting to stop any time soon. Just wondering if yall had any ideas or things That I can do to help with this issue???

It would be greatly appreciated.

Hmm, are you lifting weights? That is what really helped me. I've also heard that some women hold onto 5-10 lbs of extra weight until they stop bf.

I'm a lady that can't lose the last weight until I stop BFing. I'd definitely make sure you're doing some weights and some ab/belly exercises to help shape it back up... It can be hard to whip those muscles back into shape sometimes!

Belly fat is the hardest kind of fat to lose; the body tends to hold on to it. Most of my friends who BF said that it went away after they stopped breastfeeding.
