Ok, don't throw anything at me, but I am trying to figure out why I am losing weight. Here's my weight stats:
Prepregnancy weight: low 140s (heaviest I've been as an adult), size 10 with some 12s.
Preg weight gained: almost 20 lbs, lost 15 by the time I got home from the hossy.; was in size 12s full time
Post pregnancy weight for about 10 months: 145ish
Around 10 months PP, got really sick for a couple weeks and afterwards I fit into my old 10ish pants.
Since then, I have continued to slowly and steadily lose weight (or at least inches). I'm still in the upper 130s, but I know I am more muscular in my arms than I was previously, and I am now down to a size 8--back to my smallest adult size. My bra band size went from a 40 immediately PP to a 32.
I don't mean to look a gift horse in the mouth, but I am a little weirded out that I have continued losing inches when I wasn't trying. I was recently diagnosed with slight hypothyroidism (now treated and in normal range) and with low Vitamin D (but not deficient; it was a 30). I'm trying to figure out if extended breastfeeding is causing my weight loss (if so, yah!) or if there's something else going on that might not be good.
My diet has gotten healthier overall since having DS, but I would think my overall caloric intake is pretty much the same. I like to eat.
Anyone have continued weightloss with EBF after not losing much the first year?
