I gained 60 pounds and lost all except about 8-10 pounds by the time dd was 12 months. But, I've been trying to lose those 8-10 pounds since then! They just won't budge. I actively work out (3-4x a week) and I watch what I eat. Even when I don't work out and don't watch what I eat, the weight is the same. I think I've concluded that my body is just not ready to give up the fat until I totally stop nursing. Those pesky pounds are driving me nuts, but dd, 23 months, loves nursing so much that I'm reluctant to cut her off completely, even though I've limited it.
