I'm Laine, I'm 37 and I have 3 kids, 12yrs, 10yrs and 4 months. I gained about 45 pounds with my last baby. I'm 10 pounds from my first goal weight of 142...It's so hard to lose this weight now. I'm losing at a rate of about a pound a month now...ugh! I'm breastfeeding my 4month old and I think it's making me really hungry. I never feel full and I want to eat all the time. I literally have to tell myself I am NOT eating for 2 hours. Things that used to make me feel so full that I could barely finish it, like a huge bowl of old-fashioned oatmeal, don't seem to satisfy me. I guess that's just an excuse though. I am just eating too much to drop these last 10 pounds. I would like to lose the weight by the end of April...

Are any of you ladies hungry a lot like that? How do you cope with it and lose weight?

Honestly, I could NOT lose weight when I was breastfeeding. I think our bodies like to hold on to the extra pounds becuase your body is also making the milk your little one needs. I was starving ALL the time, just like you said. I waited until I was finished nursing to REALLY work on losing weight, when I was nursing I tried to make good food choices and worked out (walked) a lot. I hope you find something that works for you!

Welcome! I also had some issues losing weight (especially my first time BFing) then too. If I were you, I'd just make sure when you are hungry that you eat healthfully. Grab whole grains, lean proteins, fruits, veggies, and low fat dairy. I don't know if you're interested in Weight Watchers, but I know they have a breastfeeding plan. Good luck!

Thank you, peimum, for my beautiful siggy!

Welcome to the board! I was always able to lose a lot of weight really quickly while breastfeeding, but those last 10 or 15 pounds were hard to get off until mine completely weaned. As far as hunger, I try things like soup and hot herbal tea. They help trick my stomach into feeling fuller and help keep the cravings at bay. Just make sure you are eating enough calories for breastfeeding though and drinking lots of water will help too.

Welcome!!! I second the other recommendations of making good food choices and exercising. Be sure you are eating enough. That's another problem some women have, in that if we don't eat enough then the body trys to hang on to any extra calories it can for energy use later and stores them as fat. Lots of fruits and veggies are the best way to go.

BTW, I'm Tonya, your other co-host, who's been absent recently because of a daughter having tonsils removed and our moving.
