Quoting Keira:

I'd be interested to know what works for those who can not breastfeed? Any tricks?


 



I feel for ya.  I was able to last one month before I had to stop, runs in the family.  After six months, I had hardly lost any weight.  I really don't have the time to work out, though I would really love to, I enjoy it.



What I've done is stop drinking soda.  Just cut it out, maybe have one a couple times a month, as a treat.  I'm addicted to the carbonation, so I decided to subsitute it.  I get the (Nestea) Sparkling Green Teas and the sparkling flavored water from Wal-Mart.  Not only am I getting something healthier, I actually take in a lot more water and fluids in general.  It's been three weeks, and I'm already fitting into shirts that I haven't worn since I started my second trimester (my son is now 1).  I've also regained my lean face and angled chin, I am so happy.

I walk almost everywhere I go, and I take my baby with me (in the stroller and a carrier) around the block, down the the store (10 minute walk but man is it ever exhausting) and I am starting to go from a now size 12 back to a 9 :)

I walked every where and lost it in no time. I just have to find a babysitter so I can go to the gym and do some fine tuning

Yes - Samantha is right -- do a lot of activity with your babies - you can use them as "weights" - meaning - lay on your back and "bench press" your baby -- lift him in the air, and down again - that helps your arms and back,, and bit with your stomach too-- sit on the couch and lay him on your legs (holding him) and do leg lifts. Sit him/her at your feet, and everytime you come up from a crunch or sit up - say peek a boo, or smile -- involve your baby. I have 5 weights here (lol) my oldest is 45 lbs., 35lb. 32lbs, 20lbs. and 20lbs (my 2 year old daughter is itty bitty, and my 9 mo. old is chunka chunka! lol) I get a good workout!! hahaa Walk around your house, when cleaning, do it aerobic style - crunch your butt when you walk, suck in your gut to the core when you lift, bend reach, etc. incorporate housework/exercise. And then do some walking/lowimpact jogging. Good luck (oh - nuts are very good for stomach fat too-- the oils are supposed to be good - if you can eat nuts n e ways) i think avacados too.... ) Good luck!

I wouldn't stress about it too much yet. I didn't do anything different. My eating was the same, smaller portions than when I was pregnant though. I usually walk about a mile everyday, but at what ever pace I feel like pushing the stroller at. I did breast feed, but my son had such a huge appetite then I had to start rice cereal at 4 months. He's 8 month now, and I chase him all over the place. I put his change room downstairs, so I do alot of stairs. I have a lot of friends who didn't loose the last bit of weight until their kids started walking, then it seemed to have melted off.

Wear a girdle! My son is two months old and I can fit into most of my cloths from before I had himalready. Also breastfeeding helps.

I joined Weight Watchers and did the Jillian Michaels workouts on on demand. I still have some issues that can only be dealt with surgically, but it is much better :) Good Luck

P.S. Nursing doesn't help me at all!

Breastfeeding and a girdle, wear one right after giving birth (if you can, or u could wait a day or two). Suck it up for 2-3 months. Of course excercise helps a lot to tone but when you're not excercising you should wear one.

Breastfeeding, eating better, and exercising helped me! I'm 6 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight and my son is almost 7 months old. I don't think I'll ever completely loose the "pooch", but it's ok. I'm old and married with a baby, I don't need to look good anymore, lol!
