Technically your body DOES want to hold on to that last 10 pounds - it's a survival measure. In case of famine, that last 10 pounds could help you continue lactating for your baby's survival. :)
I actually gained weight after weaning, but I was overweight to begin with. I know women who experienced what you have, that 5-10 lbs. stayed on until after weaning.
I agree. And you DO need the calories now even if you feel like you've got a few extra pounds on. You are GORGEOUS (seriously). Your dh thinks so too. Eat.
Mama to Nell (11/15/06) and Maggie (10/9/10) . AFTER 2.5 YEARS, I AM AN AUNTIE!!! HOORAY TEAR78 and welcome Anika and Brand New Baby Boy!!!! Circumcision: the more you know, the worse it is; please leave the decision up to your son!
I rapidly lost weight while breastfeeding and had a very hard time keeping weight on. I lost all the pregnancy weight and an additional 15 lbs. Once DS started weaning I gained about 10 lbs back. Now I'm back to how much I weighed right before I got pregnant.
