The weight is coming back, HELP!!!

I recently had my 6 wk post partum check up and everything looked fine. My oldest is 19 mos so I do a bit of running around during the day. I only gained 11 lbs this pregnancy, she came 3 wks early (before the baby early starts really putting on the weight). I was into my regular pants by the end of the 1st wk and by the end of the 2nd wk I only had 1.5lbs until I was back to my prepreggo weight (I was 10-15lbs overweight when I got pregnant) now the weight has crept back. My question is if I lose weight will my milk supply be affected? How can I adjust my eating habits? Towards the end of the pregnancy I became a grazer and I can't seem to quit. I eat very healthy but I do LOVE sweets, it's my downfall. If I stay hydrated will my milk supply continue or does weight loss affect supply as well?

i really wouldn't worry about weight lose atm, as long as you eat healthy and look after yourself, maybe some light exercise (taking the kids for a walk) you will probably notice it gradually fall off, your lucky that most of it as come off already but it is unrealistic to expect to be back to pre preggo weight quickly, enjoy being a healthy mumma for a while
