    Sorry this might sound stupid:shy:
    Well, my LO is now 2 months and a week old and i still can't wear my pre-preg clothes. I had natural birth and i breastfeed and LO eats like every hour day n night, but i still have big jelly belly.

    I know it sounds silly, but i like to be able to wear those clothes again. I'm not eating TOO MUCH , and not on diet. But this month my weight seems to stay the same as last month.

    Any tips or advice on losing weight. :loopy:

    If you have any good advice i need some, i'm in the same boat as you hun. I naively (sp?) thought with b/f the weight would be dropping off me! Clearly doesn't seem to be working :(

    my lil man is 3months old and my weight seemed to have stuck (i was eating so healthy). however, it does seem to be shifting now but so very slowly. i cannot get into any of my clothes pre pregnancy and i loathe my belly - i asked hubby to get me a tummy tuck - ha ha. he said no it is too expensive!!! i have bought a fitness dvd which i should be doing rather than being on bnb.

    good luck!

    There was a time when I could lose the pregnancy weight in a short period of time without exercising. But I found this time around, I need to exercise in order for it to come off quicker.

    Perhaps getting a bit more active and exercising will help you lose the unwanted pounds a bit quicker as well as watching what you do eat.

    my lil one is almost 9 months now--- and i put on about 46lbs with him and i've been stuck at 160lbs for like 2 months now=== eh!!! even with exercising and eating better i'm still stuck--with the ugly mommy belly--- --- but hey 'looking only 3 months after having your baby 2 months ago isnt bad at all-- after i had mine i looked like i was 5 months along for the first two months--- so you're already doing great --- it should start to drop rapidly from now on
