Hi everyone. My little girl is just over 4 months old and the br___tfeeding has been going great for both of us....BUT....my appet_te is HUGE and I can't get my pregnancy weight off. I was a size 8 for years before having my baby, but now a size 14 and it just won't change! I'm just starving all the time! My tummy is still fat.....My son is 8 and I only br___tfed him for 6 weeks, and my weight went back down very quickly. Of course I'm older this time too (36). I just hate being so chubby! Anyone else experienc this and did it get better after weaning? Thanks!

I have the hunger... I am losing the weight but very slowely... Like 1 pound a month. Dd is 6 months and I have 10 lbs to lose. Are you eating healthy stuff and walking?

I'm the same as Excited. At first I lost a ton of weight, but then it stopped and now I have that last 10 hanging around. I read somewhere that the extra weight is needed by ur body to produce milk..u need the fat. As far as eating, I def ate as much, if not more then when I was pregnant!!! But, now at 6 months I've notice my appet_te tapering off (thank goodnes!!!). I'm not as hungary and eat smaller meals. But, yes in the beginning I was a reavenous beast haha!!

Thanks! No, I'm not eating as healthy as I should. I'm a working mom, so I pretty much just eat whatever I can find! It's like I need to eat now and anything will do! It helps to know it will get better and that I'm not alone.....
