Has anyone else had trouble loosing weight while breast feeding?
After losing all of my pregnancy weight in the first month I then put on about 6lb that I have not been able to shift. Each time I lose a couple of lbs I turn into a crazy food monster and can't stop eating until I'm +8-10lb, then I'll drift back to get steady at +6lb only to repeat the cycle.
This has been going on for more than a year now (my son is 15mo) and it's starting to really frustrate me.
I plan on nursing my son until he's ready to self-wean but would really like to lose the extra lbs before then..... am I doing something wrong? Are there any secrets to shedding those final lbs????
