    I never reallly weighed myself before I was pg and don't have scales, but I know I've got tons of exercise to do before I get back in shape. Personally I would say breast feeding hasn't helped me - I eat like a horse because it makes me hungry!

    I weighed myself the day after I had her, then weighed myself every day for about a month, then when the scales didn't go down anymore, I stopped weighing myself until about 3 months ago.

    BFing is great to help u lose weight! i lost over a stone in the first week after the birth, and almost another stone the week after. since then iv lost a further one and a half. and i eat as much as i want (including sweets, choc and pop!) and dont exercise (except lookin after millie, pickin her up carryin her around etc)
    so i put ALL my weight loss down to breast feeding :cheer:

    Me too! :lol:


    The weight just fell off me AFTER I stopped BF-ing with all three of mine.

    Guess I must be the exception :roll:

    I weighed myself about five weeks after giving birth - big mistake, I was gutted as was two stone heavier than before I was pregnant. Since then I have lost a stone (five weeks later) but I am having to really diet ie basically not eat very much at all! It's so hard as I would love to still be eating all the cakes and cream I had during pregnancy.

    I still haven't weighed myself as i don't have any scales but i'm slimmer now than before i got pregnant.

    I was a 12/14 pre pregancy and now i'm 10/12 (I even bought some size 8/10 tops the other day :cheer: ) and i think it's all from the breastfeeding :)
