OK, so I'm going to have to start over on weights and goals The stupid scale I've been using is broken and has been for a while I just didn't notice it. When I weighed this morning (even though my actual weigh-in day is Friday) I noticed it. I had dropped to 160 but had the supply issues and went to 2 days of orientation at work so I stopped dieting altogether. When I weighed Friday I had gained back the 2lbs I had lost - but wait, it gets worse ...So, I went to Walmart and bought a digital scale and when I weighed on it this afternoon it said I am 173lbs So all this time I have been weighing a ton lower than I really am. I am so frustrated with this. I feel like I want to just quit BFing so I can lose some weight - I mean it is really a big deal to me that I weigh this much I just don't know what to do. FF babies are healthy, too...
Anyway, I'm sorry for hijacking the weigh-in thread
Just needed to get that off my chest. I guess I'll do an unclothed first thing in the morning weight tomorrow...

Don't quit BFing for dieting! Just take Fenugreek... are you?

My scale says 198.4 this morning, which I think puts me down 6 lbs from last week... I ate really healthy until Saturday morning... then I've not eaten much since then but my appetite started coming back yesterday evening.

Sunday I was at 182.4 so a little over 2 pounds last week. WW is giving me the warning that I'm losing to fast but I think it's because it's PP weight.

Sally- Don't quit BF!! In the long run that should help you lose weight!

Michelle- Huge glad you are getting your appetite back, need to stay healthy.

Ok ladies I am joining this now.. Gaines 12lbs during pregnancy then after birth lost 22 while nusing so that put me to 240 well guess what in the past 7 weeks I have gained back 18 of them pounds... Seriously so Sally I can relate I thought I weighed less too. My I went to my family dr and he gave me a script for adipex.. Which cures fatigue and boosts ur metoblism, I started them today. My goal while taking them is 58 lbs and then I think I will be fit enough to carry on without. Please don't look down on me for taking a drug to help but I have been overweight my whole life. This is this first time I have ever discussed my weight with anyone so this is a big step for me!!!

Mysticalgal-Adipex is great! I took it 2 years ago and lost almost 30lbs with it. And you don't lose it too fast. So if you don't see results right away give it about a month and that is when I started to see results. I love that it doesn't take away your appetite, but it makes you thirsty so you want to drink more then eat. And I was able to maintain the weight that I was when I went off of it. I didn't start to gain until my 7.5 month of pregnancy and I had been off of them for about a year and a half. If you hit a platuea, start taking some b-12, they helped me get past mine. The other thing I liked about it was that it doesn't make your heart feel like it is about to beat our of your chest at least it didn't for me.
Good luck and keep us posted!

You don't have to ask, yes we know what causes it, and since you're asking and dont, google might be a nice place to start.
