you did WW before? me too. I never thought I would say this, but I can hardly wait to get back on the plan. Want to stay in touch after babies are born and support each other through the weight loss?

You betcha! They do have a modified program for bf as far as I know, so I plan on doing that after I look into it a bit more.<br><br>
I did WW online ( no meetings, just virtually) when dd2 was about 6 months. I started at 188, and by the following year had lost 51 lbs. 137 turned out to be too low for me, so I gained about 8 back and kept it there until about 18 months ago- when I quit working, moved, and got remarried. Now I started out this pg at almost my starting weight after dd2 so I already feel horrible!<br><br>
Having a buddy always helps you be more accountable and get back on track when need be-so I say, let's do it!

I did it online too. Was never a huge fan of going to the meetings, plus its so hard with ds especially since DH usually works pretty late and I work full time.<br><br>
I have done it twice. The first time I started at 205 and got down to 160. I then went through a divorce and just a crappy time in life and went back up to about 180. After that I got preggo with DS and then did WW again but only got down to about 173. Admittatly I wasn't doing it like I should, kept thinking, "whats the point, I am just going to get pregnant again." I started this pregnancy at about 185 and i am miserable. I cannot wait to get back on the bandwagon. My goal is to get to about 150 by next June and then have a tummy tuck and breast reduction since this is our last.<br><br>
I am so excited to have a partner in this!

Hi! Sorry to butt in (not in your DDC, but not too far off! Due Nov. 5), but just wanted to mention that I did WW too when DD was about 5 months old and the first thing the meeting leader asked was if I was BFing (I had DD with me). She said, "Great! You've got an edge on everyone!" and I got 10 extra points per day since she was still EBF. From what I've heard, you just keep eating the 10 extra points as long as you are EBF, and even after introducing solids. When you hit a plateau, drop a point or two for a couple of weeks and see if that jump starts things, and just keep dropping points one or two at a time as your baby eats more and more solids! I have heard that some WW instructors make you drop all 10 points as soon as you introduce any solids, but I didn't find that necessary, and I wouldn't think it would be good for your supply! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Anyway, just wanted to share my experience! I too can't wait to get back to WW after this baby!

Can I join you ladies? I did WW last year, and combined with the "Couch to 5K" program, I lost 40lbs! I was HOTTTT.<br><br>
And YES, I actually can't wait to start counting points again. I feel so flabby.

I had just started Couch to 5 K when I found out I was pg. I thought I would try to keep up with it, but my hips hurt too bad so I switched to just walking 5x a day but it really ain't the same.<br>
Good to know there are others out there who have had success and want to get back "OP" as they say!<br><br>
BTW thanks for the BF info, littlebrowndog!
