I just had a baby 6 1/2 weeks ago and I had put on 43 pounds. Now lets just say though I was overweight to begin with. After I had the baby I was so literally disgusted with myself for letting myself get even bigger than I should have with pregnancy. Anyhoo, I got right on cutting down and eating smaller portions. Yesterday was my 6 week follow up appt with my ob and I was weighed this is the first time since I had the baby I was weighed and I dropped exactly the 43 I gained. Now 20 of that loss was from having the baby but I was super excited. Anyways I'm not doing any diet in specific just trying to eat smaller portions and only eat when I am hungry and of course eat healthier with the occasional treat. I even ate what I wanted on Thanksgiving. I am trying to just eat like a skinny person. If u watch most skinny people they do not eat big portions and hardly ever go back for seconds. Exercise has been out for me as having a newborn that doesnt like to sleep has put a huge cramp in that. Anyways just wanted to post and tell my little story. I havent posted here before. I still have at least 60 pounds to drop so if anyone would like to buddy up with me for support I am here.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
