    Baby Bump

    Now I'm sure I'm not the only lady here that is having a hard time losing the baby fat, right? My son is 61/2 months and I'm only four pounds lighter than when he was born. What makes it even worse is that I BREASTFEED! Isn't that supposed to be the miracle fat melting tool? No I don't exercise regularly, but hell, I take the stairs when I can and I do my best to stay away from pop and my all time love, bread, and what is a girl to do? I've always what and how much I wanted and until my baby bump I didn't have a problem keeping my weight regulated. Any tips for a lactating mom?

    I used Weight Watchers, it's the only diet that has ever worked for me and it is so easy. I did it all online too I never went to those classes. I gained about 50 pounds during my pregnancy I lost about 30 pounds right after the baby and the rest stuck. I finally started weight watchers and lost 30 more and that put me about 10 pounds under my pre-preggo weight.
