I gained 50 lbs with my son. I am just now trying to lose weight as of July 12. and He is 16 months old. It was hard at first to walk around and get things done. I would wait til 3 months that's when my doctor said I could work out again. and even then it was hard to walk just one miles. Take baby steps! and ask your doctor at your 6 week check up. :) Keep drinking your water and ,make small snacks while breastfeeding. That's what I was told to do. :)

Since you have been inactive for a long time, you should wait until you are cleared to exercise by your care provider.

When my son was a newborn, I just ate at maintenance calories..I was back to pre-preg weight in 3 weeks.

My daughter will be three weeks tomorrow:)


I gained 60 lbs during my pregnancy. I was 160 prior to and was 220 before I gave birth. I stayed pretty active during my pregnancy until the 6th month. I admit I didn't eat the best. I was mainly stress eating. I was also dealing with my father's battle with cancer and the loss of that battle two months prior to her birth.

After 23 hours of labor, including 3 hours of pushing, i ended up with a c-section so any hopes of going back to my old workouts as soon as I'd like are out the door.

I currently am between 190-195. Any suggestions on diet and exercise? I am breastfeeding as well as bottle feeding, so Atkins, which worked before is out the door. Well the maintenace phase anyways.
