weight loss after baby…?
I am working real hard to lose my post partum weight. I only have about 12lbs from when i found out that I was pregnant and now. I work out daily (sometimes twice a day) I walk/jog one mile a day when my husband gets home and do a routine video in the morning when I can. I also am watching what I eat. My menu is usually scrambled eggs with cheese on whole wheat toast for breakfast, a fiber granola bar with either yogurt, pudding or jello and a protein shake for lunch/snack and a salad with cottage cheese and protein shake for dinner. I stop eating by 7pm so as to not have anything “sitting” on me. I have been doing this about two weeks solid and the scale isnt budging. What else can I do. I know normally I would be losing with this regimine. I am also breastfeeding so I have to be sure to be getting enough nutrients and calories for the breast milk. I dont want to take any supplements that could harm my baby, thanks.

Stress and lack of sleep did it for me!

Answer by mommy & wife
Give it some time, you’re doing everything right..you’ll lose weight. The only thing I’ll suggest is eating smaller portions, more often during the day. This speeds up your metabolism. I still eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner…but small portions with small snacks inbetween each.

just keep up on it, your body will change eventually

You just gave the key word – you’re breastfeeding. You aren’t eating enough to compensate for the calories exerted during your day.

Try eating more protein and more fruits/veggies. If you do, you will see results.

Also I have to say – protein shakes are NOT really that healthy for you unless you pack them with fruits.

For me, I was not able to lose the rest of the baby weight until after I stopped breastfeeding. As soon as I stopped the rest of the weight came off. Just keep active and eating healthy and the rest of it will come off. Good Luck!

i think you should always eat something when you hungry, or its bad health for the baby. try not to loose weigh yet. eat when you are hungry, go lose some pounds when u done having the baby. i hope this helps and try to sleep up to 9 hours because thats the normal hours we have to sleep

u do not need the protein shakes though but otherwise it sounds fine, just hang on and u wll shed the weight in no time, instead of buying protein shakes by the fat burner powder which is the same price roughly, i only need protein shakes if u r body building.

My best friend has been struggling with postpartum weight as well! She has started running close to 5 miles everyday and the weight has really started to fall off! She also does Yoga 3 times a week.

Just increase your cardio, and good luck!

If you really want to lose weight and see results quickly, try the atkins diet. My husband did it. He weighed 235 and went to 180 in about 8 months. It is a high protein – lo carb diet.
