how much do nursing breasts weigh"...ummm...I was desperate!! 7 lbs seems like 70 because I am truly doing the best I possibly can. I've been working out since a week PP, even going back to the gym 9 days after having Bryn. I have a treadmill in my basement, and even get up at 5am on Fridays to do a spin class. I gained 5lbs less with B than I did with T, and I worked out more. Hey body...I'm trying.
The balancing act is definitely in the food consumption. I have to eat a certain number of calories to make sure my milk doesn't dry up. I also get soooo hungry at certain times in the day, like evenings when she's cluster-feeding. I am a healthy eater, and continue to be now. So...what gives you dreaded 7 lbs?!? Why do you torture me so?!? Why are you preventing me from fitting in my favorite jeans and some of my much-needed work pants? Why are you stopping me from being able to use my gift certificates from my birthday for new school clothes? I HATE YOU!
