I was trying to lose weight before getting pregnant, always a challenge for me. My bigger challenge is gaining weight while pregnant. With DD1 I gained a whopping 6-7 lbs the entire pregnancy, so I was down more after the birth then I was before getting pregnant. It didn't take long though and I started gaining again. This time at 35 weeks I've gained 10lbs. I imagine after the birth I'll be around my starting weight again. I don't want to go higher this time while nursing! I would like to lose this time but I'm not sure when is the best time to start a diet while nursing. Can I start right away or should I wait 1 month, 6 months, ... I have no idea what is recommended.
