Hi there. I'm jj. I have a 13 month old nursling, and I'm currently trying to lose the last 15 pounds of baby weight. I pretty much didn't lose anything between the first month and 9 months, but since then I've lost about 12 pounds and I'm excited to get through the rest and get in shape for summer.

Right now I'm doing the south beach diet, with a few extra servings of dairy... my son eats 3 meals a day now, so my supply isn't so critical, but he still nurses plenty, so I don't want to wear my body down by not eating enough.

I look forward to getting to know y'all.

Hey, I'm Carmine and I have a 21 yro nurser. She isn't nursing as much now as she used to but she still wants it.

I just joined Fatsecret yesterday and excited to see this group. I've gained about 35 lbs since having my baby. And am pressed to lose that and then some. I wish you all success in your weightloss journeys.

Hi, I'm new this week as well. My son is almost 11mos. and nurses 2-4x a day.
I was diabetic during pregnancy so I did well- 2 weeks after birth I was actually down 27lbs. then before pregnancy. The problem is I have gained back 18 already! I want it to stop now!! You would think running around after 3 kids would be enough - summer is here and no excuses!

I'm joining the group a little premature. I am 38.5 weeks pregnant. So close to the finish line! I am determined to breastfeed and want all the support I can get. Glad there are groups like this to help each other out. Gaining weight during pregnancy was very hard emotionally for me. I want to lose the weight in a healthy way and not have it affect my milk supply.

Hello! I have an almost 3 week old (constant) nurser. I was lucky enough to only gain 16 lbs during my pregnancy, and lost that while I was in labor and delivery. So now I am dedicated to losing the baby weight that I gained 4 years ago!

Hello! I am a 24 year old new mom. My first is only 6 weeks old. He nurses constantly, and I want to be sure that he is getting the nutrients he needs from me. I had diabetes while I was pregnant so I only gained about 20 pounds while I was pregnant. I am only 2 pounds above my pre-pregnancy weight. I had lost a lot of weight before I got pregnant and now I am ready to get back on the band-wagon! I hope to reach my goal by Dustin's first birthday!

Hello other mamas!
My daughter is 11 months now, and I have lost all the pregnancy weight! I only gained 24 pounds and with breastfeeding- *POOF* it was gone without much effort from me.
Now I am just working on the residual pounds....My goal is to lose 40 lbs. I am feeling confident with nursing, so now is the time to start a diet.
