I had gained over 40lbs during my pregnancy and my daghter is now 8 months old. I still haven't lost the last 15 lbs. I am breastfeeding and will continue until sh is a yr old. I am just exhausted with these extra pounds. I follow a balanced diet and I used to work out regularly until a few months ago. ANd with no weight loss I was so frustrated that I left working out. ANyway, Sorry that I am venting here. Is anyone going through the same struggles? Any comment will be appreciated!!!

I don't know if this applies to everyone but my good friend breast fed her son up until he was one and she wasn't able to lose the last bit of weight until she started weaning and after she stopped nursing. I have heard that it is a myth that breastfeeding just burns off all your calories and that your body actually purposely stores some fat for the purpose of breastfeeding. hope that helped :) keep up the hard work mama!
