I gained approximately 38 pounds whiles pregnant. (this was my first pregnancy) and I have been successfully breastfeeding. I was moderately active before pregnancy and stayed so during. After I got the okay from my doc I started hitting the gym harder. I'm 2 and 1/2 months post partum and I've lost 27 of it. Is this pretty average? I'm doing my best to take care of my body and making sure to take my vitamins and eat a variety of healthy foods and consuming atleast 1600 -1900 calories a day (but i do have an aweful sweet tooth). I would love some tips on how other breastfeeding moms got back in shape, how long it took, how long you were breastfeeding, and what kind of work outs were done.
