I don’t know how many times I had heard, “The longer you breastfeed, the quicker you will lose that baby weight.” HA!. That’s funny stuff right there.
It’s been four and a half months since Nathan and Lucas were born and I am stuck hating my body right now. While I do not exclusively breastfeed because I just couldn’t keep up with the milk they needed, I am definitely not “losing weight from breastfeeding”. I’m at a plateau which is driving me absolutely nuts. I keep getting the “Oh my god, you just had twins!?” as they scan me from head to toe and let me tell you, that drives me even more nuts. Sure, I might look great to you but I know what I looked like before.
You can’t really diet while you breastfeed for obvious reasons. I am out walking or finding ways to get outside and move with the kids. Still, the bathroom scale is my nemesis.
Ultimately, if I want to get back to pre-baby, I need to lose 40 pounds. At this point, I’d be a-okay with 30 pounds.
What ways did you find to lose the weight after baby (Or babies?)
