    I've heard that sometimes it can cause your body to hold onto fat stores, making losing weight harder.

     

    Since losing weight wasn't hard enough :)

  • My exact problem and waiting for the day when things change.  I've even gained a few lbs back from the initial 25 lbs lost in the days after giving birth.  But this HAS to move because i'm starting to lose my mind about it.

    Breastfeeding does not automatically = weight loss.  Some women actually hold on to their fat stores until they're done breastfeeding.  Continue eating right and exercising and you'll see a difference eventually.
  • I tried eating more, eating less, eating just for hunger, calorie counting, weight watchers, more exercise, less exercise.  NOTHING makes a difference!  I also gained more weight than I thought I would when I was pregnant - I was meticulous about what I ate, worked out 5 days a week and still gained way more than I should have.  I think my body just works weird.  I'm assuming this weight will eventually come off... I would just like it to be sooner rather than later!
