now that my son is nursing less, my appetite is WAY down. i've been used to eating a certain amount for about 4.5 yrs now (pregnancy/nursing/pregnancy/nursing) and i'm having a really hard time listening to my body about when i'm full and even when i'm actually hungry. it seems like a strange thing to complain about, but i really hate that i can't "pack it away" like i used to, and when i try to, i get horrible stomach aches. i can't remember how much i ate prior to becoming a mom! i still have a compulsion to eat a lot even though my son only nurses a few times a day. anyways, anyone else feel this way?
