I agree that it takes creative thinking to fit in an exercise routine with multiple children in the house. When I let the kids watch a Wiggles show, I try to dance along. It's really high impact! Breastfeeding has consistently helped me lose weight throughout the first year of each baby's life. It surprises me to read that NOT getting enough calories can actually slow down our bodies' weightloss. After tracking my food on SP, I find that's the case for me. I have a 5-month old and I have not been able to reach my lower range of 2,000 calories or protein range with "healthy" eating. However, if I indulge in more food or unhealthy food to help reach the ranges, then I go WAY over in the carb and fat ranges. Does that matter when I'm nursing? Which is worse for a nursing mother: not enough calories & protein/just right carbs & fats OR enough calories & protein/too many carbs & fats?
