I would like to know your opinions / advice on loosing weight after giving birth and when still breastfeeding.

I had a c-section and my baby is 4 months old now. My husband is very keen for me to loose the baby weight and although I would like to resume gym classes and limit my food intake I am afraid of not having enough milk for my baby and also I am still too tired and can’t leave my baby for the gym activities. If you could share your experiences with me I would appreciate it, thank you!

    You don’t want to limit your food intake, but you can change what you are eating slightly. One big difference for me was that I switched to drinking pretty much only water and lots of it. The 8 glasses a day thing really helps. You don’t have to cut out all the junk (it’s really not worth it), but just limit it. Sugar is a big culprit.

    The breastfeeding gives you a boost. It helps you burn calories, and coupled with a good diet and mild exercise/mommy duties, you should be good to go. You don’t have to go to the gym. Can you get out with your baby during the day for a walk? This is all I did and I found the weight started to come off when my daughter was a few months old and kept coming.

    Oh, and bah! to your husband! Your body just went through 9 months of pregnancy and then the birth of your child. It takes time to recover and you’ve been breastfeeding and spending your time taking care of your baby.
