Ive been told by my OBGYN doc that sometimes there is nothing you can do until your hormones straighten back out...its an uncontrolled thing...I wouldn't worry about 5-10 pounds some women cant lose 20 to 30 pounds...me Ive lost all mine but I went on depo right after baby was born...therefore my hormones are where they started and it was easy for me to lose the weight...however I have gained back 5 pounds because after 13 months my hormones are changing yet once again....Im just hoping eventually they will completely straighten out.....my mom told me that hormonal changes can do some amazing things....just think about what all changes in the 9 months that you were pregnant....she has a point...the more you stress the harder its gonna be...be happy that youve lost most of the weight and move on....thats all you can do at this point......
