I don't know if I should be cutting calories more or if this is an ok thing and should be expected.
I have been obese for a while but began primal eating in Jan 2010. By July I had lost 30 lbs and found out I was pregnant. YAY! Had a baby in April and by the time I went into labor I had gained the entire 30 lbs back.
Lost that easily and then lost 25 more pounds to a total of 55 lost post partum, since April 2011.
Now my kiddo is still nursing for most of his calories (he is doing BLW) at 7 months and I am fighting for each pound I lose. I have lost 5 pounds in three months. So frustrating seeing as how I have 95 lbs more to go. (my high weight was 300, am now 245).
I eat primal but have continued fruit ad lib. I don't want my little guy to lose out on good breastmilk, but I would *like* to lose weight sometime this century! I plan on nursing him until he weans or around 3 years old, whichever comes first.
You hear about weight flying off when you breastfeed but do some of you hang on to weight?
