So it's been almost 4 months since I had my little guy and I'm still not feeling good about myself. Lately it's been worse because I've kind of hit a little bit of a snag with my weight loss. I started off my heaviest (200) and I was only that weight from losing a pregnancy just a few months prior (I was 3 months and had a really bad bout of depression) to getting pregnant with my son. So I hit 243! And the weight seemed to be coming off pretty easy at first (I'm a strickly breastfeeder), but now my weight will fluxuate every day! It's either 215 to 218. What makes me the most mad is all these women talk about how much weight they lost right off the bat with breastfeeding and I'm just not seeing it! My son eats a lot! He was born at 9 pounds 7 ounces. He's now over 17 pounds! So he's eating a whole lot! So why can't I just easily lose all this weight? Plus the hair shedding is rediculous and makes me want to scream! Any advice to help me get out of my moody blues and just be happy? Thanks ladies.
