I've had 2 c-sections & breastfed both babies. My current child is 5 mo's old. I lost ALL the weight I gained with her pregnancy by the time she was 6 weeks old, but I've gained back 20 lbs of it over a 4 month period & I have no idea why. I am not eating anymore than usual & I didn't do anything to lose the initial weight. I was 115 at the time of my first pregnancy - I ended up keeping 20 lbs of that pregnancy which put me up to 135 - I was very happy with that weight - now I am at 155 lbs. I am 37 yrs old - is it just my age creeping up on me & changing my metabolism or what? It feels like the weight just appeared overnight. I am in between my pregnancy clothes & my clothes - so I now have to wear my husband's stuff! I can't diet yet b/c I am nursing still. Any suggestions other than the obvious - excersize. We are already doing the P90X program.
