I was talking to my DH and telling him how I haven't been eating sweets or carbs in general because I'd like to slim down as soon as possible but I don't want to do anything that will affect my milk supply. So that is the big thing weighing against my desire to do some super food restrictions. Then he said that my body's first priority is to make milk so even if I didn't eat for a couple of days, I would still make milk. I said that from what I understand, it is important to get adequate calories and fluids in order to make enough milk. It is very important to us that I breast feed so I want this to work. (Also there is a sensitive part of me that thinks he is saying maybe I shouldn't eat for 3 days or that I do need to diet-even though he said specifically that I don't need to worry about it)
I'm upset because I really don't need anyone to encourage the crazy thoughts I'm having about dieting. I don't think he understands how I have the potential to be very obsessive about my weight. I felt like he was giving me the go ahead to be obsessed. In my right mind, I know I need to eat adequate calories for breast feeding. I just don't think he gets it.
