Heck, yes.  I gained ten pounds and found it impossible to lose weight, with calorie counting or exercise.  Now that my daughter is a year old, I have cut back to only nursing at night and taking Dom twice a day.  Already I am shedding pounds.

Yep, I gained at least 12lbs on it, haven't lost it and I haven't taken any dom since Oct '10.

Ugh, yes.  It was impossible to lose weight. I would fluctuate up and down from the same 5 lbs, it was maddening. I eventually weaned down and started taking the Motherlove Special Blend herbs. They did as well or better than dom without the weight issues.

I love homemade: cute skirts, apricot jam, and family!
