A lot of Ig followers have asked me about losing weight while breastfeeding. Honestly it’s been pretty slow paced for me and I’m ok with that. My prepregnancy weight was around 125 lbs and I’m back to that now. However, a month ago I was around 132/135 lbs. I got down to this point with my at home workouts (contact me for details)
The last 10 lbs while nursing are always the hardest for me. I feel like the hormones that help me make milk also keep me holding on to some fat. And if I cut my calories 1. I’m hungry and 2. My milk supply suffers.
Yal know Vivian isn’t gonna have that.
So how’d I do it? Well, hubby started doing a fitness challenge with our gym. He asked me if I wanted to do it and I said “no thanks” 🤣. But he does all the grocery shopping so I had no choice. I told him I’d follow a meal plan if I could eat as much as I wanted of the right foods.
A typical day of eating for me goes something like this:
– 1 egg/2-3 egg whites and sprouted grain toast with jelly
– leftovers from dinner
– snack (shakeology (with spinach) or fruit and Greek yogurt)
– dinner choice
Popular dinner choices around here are air fried chicken and veggies, turkey burgers and a salad, or pulled chicken flatbreads.
The food is all good! And I’m never hungry. I’ve seen no dip in supply but in the challenge I lost nearly 7 lbs in 1 month!
I don’t count calories but I’d say I’m eating 2300 or so a day. We also have 1-2 cheat meals a week.
This plan won’t work for everyone, but it is definitely possible as a nursing momma to find a plan that works for you! – get yourself a personalized one from CSS now!
