[ - ] any nursing moms on here? any tips you have to lose the weight but not hurt supply? And, I know you all will say not to worry about it. But I hate this extra weight. My clothes barely fit, I hate the way I look naked. I know it is not "important" but it is to me. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

each woman is different. I lost all my weight plus more nursing number 1 and but can't seem to get rid of it all nursing #2 and it's been over a year :( If it's just a few pounds, you might lose it when you stop. you can always incorporate exercise and depending on how often you nurse, you can probably do some dieting (for example, if you're not nursing overnight, you can definitely cut off eating post 7 or somethign similar) [ Reply | More ]

It is like 5 lbs but all back fat, like a bit of a muffin top. I already exercise & make sure to hydrate and I try and diet but am scared to cut calories too much. I am not nursing overnight but DH doesnt get home until like 7 at least so I'd have to eat dinner alone. [ Reply | More ]

How long have you been nursing? I felt like I was holding on to the weight for the first few months, now, fast-forward to 21 months and I weigh less than I did before I was pregnant. It may just take a little while longer. I did try to get back in the gym, but I don't work out as much as I used to. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] If Sanders is the Democratic candidate, I'll gladly vote for him. I think that's how most Clinton supporters feel. But the fact so many Sanders supporters talk about her like Republicans do and how they won't vote for her if she wins the primary, is terrifying. People think Americans as a whole aren't stupid enough to elect Trump as president but so many Sanders supporters (usually young white men & women) make me think otherwise. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
