i don't understand the poll. if you were back to pre-pregnancy weight one month postpartum, then extended breastfeeding had nothing to do with it.
: did you just mean any breastfeeding at all? or are you curious about weight loss patterns after one year of nursing?
i gained 19-20 pounds during pregnancy, lost 22 by my 2 week checkup, and lost 20 more after she turned 1. i was doing The Zone though, so i think that had a lot to do with it. i would like to lose another 15, but i honestly don't see how nursing can help me do it. i just need to get off my enormous rearend and exercise! i can say that i have been eating an inordinate amount of junk food lately, and haven't gained a pound. doesn't mean i'm not chubby, i'm just not expanding!
i hope when she finally weans that my breasts will return to a proportionate size. they are still ridiculous looking, though i am glad that they balance out my chubby belly, thighs and rear.
