Ok so... I know its only been 6 months, but this extra weight is killing me. I gained 35 lbs in my pregnancy. I have lost 25 lbs so far but seem to be stuck. I am still breastfeeding 3x a day. My husband is not attracted to me with the weight and I am not happy with it either. I have been bike riding and walk/running for a month now and dont see any change. I still have stretch marks that wont go way despite my obsession with cocoa butter creams. I still have hemorrhoids despite the prescription meds my OB gave me. My hair use to be thick prior to the pregnancy and now I have lost over half of my thickness (no bald spots yet). I am scared to completely wean because I have heard that many women gain weight after doing so. Am I the only one feeling this way? I dont want to be so negative but it is REALLY bothering me. I am trying to focus on my daughter and how wonderful she is, but I this is killing me. Any one else having these problems or maybe have a suggestion?
