I have had two kids back to back in less than 2 years. With my daughter, I gained more than 70lbs. Prior to pregnancy, I was about 155. When I gave birth I was 228lbs. I managed to drop about fifty pounds of that leaving me at 178lbs when I found out I was pregnant again with my son Kareem. When I gave birth to him I was at 209 lbs which left me at a reasonable gain of 31 lbs I have lost about 21lbs of the 31lbs leaving me at 188lbs postpartum. I had my first postpartum visit a little more than a week ago and I asked my OBGYN if I could go on a diet, he informed me that you are not supposed to diet while breastfeeding. Well, I am not happy with the way my body looks. I have that c-section pouch that looks like it is composed of loose skin that has no feeling whatsoever. Its gross. Please help!
