I lose weight when I'm breast feeding. Slowly but surely.

At the moment I am at a standstill. I would have lost weight but I went no more GD crazy and ate alot of junk food. My baby weight was lost in the first week though.

But I was only up 25lbs and the baby was 10lbs 10oz and the placenta was over 9lbs.

I lose weight when bfing. So far 10 days pp I've lost 22 pounds. The plan is to lose another 20 to 25. As soon as I stop bfing I will gain some weight back.

My baby is 3 days old, and I am down 7 pounds, but am still swollen and my milk came in today, so hopefully will lose more very soon! Baby was 9 14oz and placenta was 5. I was also induced and given a ton of fluid and pitocian.
Hopefully next week looks better!

I've lost about 17 lbs total of the baby weight since giving birth 11 days ago. I've lost about 6 lbs since I had her, I lost about 11 just giving birth. I have about 14 lbs to lose to get to my pre pregnancy weight still, but I've decided to stop breast feeding as its just too much for me even tho I enjoy it. I'm hoping I still lose weight despite stopping.. We'll see

I've lost a little more than half of the weight I gained during pregnancy. I don't contribute any weight loss to bfing though. I have to eat to keep my supply up.

I started mild exercise about 2 weeks pp, so that's where any weight loss is from I'm sure. I really drop the weight once I'm done bfing, but that won't be for another year.

I've lost a little over 30 pounds, but I also gained a lot more than that. It's kind of at a standstill now and probably will be until I start exercising in three weeks. So ready for that!

Thank you, peimum, for my beautiful siggy!

Just had my 6 week check up today (crazy!) and am at pre-pregnancy weight still - I have been since 1 week PP. I'm eating a lot so that I don't lose too much because with my other 2 I lost too much weight to feel healthy for me.
